Deep, Dated, Witty, Intense, Great writing

See it if Great characters. Witty dialog. Themes that were edgy in their time. Slow, intense buildup to a satisfying climax.

Don't see it if You won’t appreciate a classic with somewhat dated themes. Maggie was less convincing than the male leads.

Well acted, Indulgent, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if Clark's Brick & Pruitt's Big Daddy take command of William's gothic soap opera McCallum's Maggie is competent but lacks needed desperation

Don't see it if William's prose can get deliciously purple yet the lengthy, dramatic rants give the play its drive leaving only the ugly, needed self-truths

Intense, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Dated, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy mid-20th century plays. You want a classic play performed by a great cast in an atmospheric setting.

Don't see it if You'd prefer a play w/more modern ideas about women, homosexuality & race: while in context w/the play's time, they're uncomfortable to hear
