See it if you love Shakespeare, musical theatre, & Len. Also, if acting a song is more important than perfect singing - a pleasure to watch.
Don't see it if u prefer shows with plots & only like music for the notes. Also, the piano sometimes overpowered him, so if u have hearing probs, be warned
See it if you enjoy Shakespeare and Broadway classics. Cariou has thoughtfully curated both elements and his performance is that of a true star.
Don't see it if you're expecting something revolutionary. This is more of a twist on a nightclub/cabaret act.

Don't see it if you are expecting a Broadway jukebox-type show, of all well-known songs or can't handle a show where all the songs sound very similar.
See it if you enjoy Shakespearea & show music, performed by a class act. Carriou is entertaining & makes you feel like he's talking to just to you.
Don't see it if you are too young to enjoy classic shows, or Shakespeare bores you. Carriou is a theater veteran, and a class act, mixed the two seamlessly.
See it if You love Shakespeare combined with show tunes. Witty and entertaining one man show by the always enchanting Len Criou
Don't see it if Shakespeare is not your cup of tea. Music and recitation do not interest you. You want to hear the voice of Len as good as it used to be
See it if you're a fan of Cariou, Shakespeare, and/or show tunes; an interesting pairing of songs and soliloquies, though some work better than others
Don't see it if you're looking for a really deep exploration of the subject, or are bothered by Cariou's less-than-perfect vocal technique at almost age 80

Don't see it if You want a song and dance show. There will be no dancing.

Don't see it if You need great vocals - his voice has definitely suffered w/ age, but his acting is clear and committed; you want a flashy, high-energy show
See it if You like Cariou, Shakespeare, show tunes, nostalgia, cabaret-like intimate performance.
Don't see it if You can't overlook the ravages of age on the voice and physique, if you think Shakespeare should only be performed by Great British actors.
