Insipid, Slow, Banal, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if you are curious about what happens when good will and effort is not enough.

Don't see it if you are not up on Russian revolutionary history. Information is hinted at in this stilted production w/ odd symbols like barefoot princeses

So so so so bad

See it if you feel like you must see a "classic" old school type play that takes place a long time ago

Don't see it if you want to be comfortable. It's an hour and 45 mins with no intermission. The seats for not comfortable. Please read what I have so say Read more

Absorbing, Great acting, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to hear about Russian history and women during wartime. You want to be thankful that you did not have to experience this first hand

Don't see it if You have no interest in Russian history. You are not interested in what these sisters had to go through during wartime.

Clever, Intelligent, Ambitious

See it if You support young artist, like a historical piece, know the young ladies presenting the piece.

Don't see it if You expect a Broadway caliber piece, don't like historical pieces, expect an extravagant theatre. Read more

Confusing, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you really like Russian based stories with young actresses

Don't see it if you hate a slow plodding production without much plot or point

70
Entertaining, Absorbing, Historical drama, Bad staging, and prop design

See it if Limited by space, set design, and movement, acting alone is able to demonstrate the fear, grief, and permanent desperation of the sisters

Don't see it if you are a history buff, since the play is not entirely historically accurate due to its limitations

72
Absorbing, Slow, Thought-provoking, Dated, Banal

See it if You want to see Russian-based shows with biblical messages and Chekhov lines. The writing and acting are good.

Don't see it if You don't like simple settings or small productions. Read more

70
Ambitious, Edgy, Slow, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You know the ending but like to get absorbed in the story telling, well acted and simply staged make the girls the center of all

Don't see it if almost no reason, but if repetition annoys you as the word "sisters" does grate on your nerves or if you prefer a more lavish production
