Ambitious, Clever, Thought-provoking

See it if A show dealing with interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships appeals to you

Don't see it if Show that probably needs to conclude a little earlier and unnecessarily moves from the personal to universal when the personal is universal

Absorbing, Great acting, Must see, Profound, Resonant

See it if you appreciate drama examining memories, perspectives, frailties and relationships among three generations of women living alone together

Don't see it if you are a Holocaust denier or disinterested in non-musical drama or psychological examination of relationships primarily among women

Cliched, Banal, Disappointing, Overrated, Thought-provoking

See it if U want to see a Jewish holocaust piece. This is a 3 generational family of women's story dealing with healing through opening up about past~

Don't see it if You're looking for anything new or insightful. This was a forced, so-so acted/directed & unoriginal play. The lead was in her 60s, not 90s!
