Clever, Entertaining, Great acting, Ambitious, Confusing

See it if you want an introduction to the title character, enjoy experiencing historical characters in her near-death dreams and want a few laughs.

Don't see it if you want a polished production. Staging is simple and does not hold the play together tightly with a recent cast addition using a script.

Ambitious, Confusing, Indulgent, Entertaining, Messy, though worthy

See it if You enjoy absurdism. You like experimental theatre. You like plays about big ideas. You like theatre about historical figures.

Don't see it if You want a fully, ready for prime-time script: it feels like an early draft. It's flawed, though there's a lot of good stuff throughout.
