Great writing, Entertaining, Relevant, Absorbing, Great staging

See it if You want to see a well written show, maybe not all great actors but pretty good, together with the clever staging makes for a great evening.

Don't see it if You’ll be disappointed if every roles not performed to perfection. Overall, cast is a bit uneven but does great job. Surprisingly relevant.

Absorbing, Insightful, Clever, Intelligent, Emotional

See it if Characters lie to themselves when the truth is too hard to reconcile with social norms. Consequences ensue. Good use of older/younger selves

Don't see it if You aren’t interested in the pain caused by rigid social norms in 1950s Texas. You don’t enjoy stories that jump back and forth in time.

"The script wasn’t exactly my cup of tea. There were a few funny moments and the plot became slightly more interesting during the second half, but overall, I found it to be a mediocre and somewhat dated story which relies too heavily on the appeal of the celebrity figure around whom the plot revolves...The cast did a fine job at bringing these characters to life...While I wasn’t exactly a fan of the play itself, on the whole it was well-produced."
