Entertaining, Great acting, Dated, Stereotypical, Funny

See it if you have not seen the play or movie. It may suffer comparison but it is still enjoyable with the cast's over the top take on the characters.

Don't see it if you have seen it before and bound to compare the classic with the new over the top (but quite entertaining at that) version by a cute cast !

Cliched, Dated, Entertaining

See it if You want to see a show about a boy coming of age. The interactions with his family and friends are well acted. Great story and plot twist

Don't see it if You don’t like gay or lesbian issues. You don’t like teenage drama pieces

Ambitious, Entertaining, Funny, Dated, Cliched

See it if You want to see a good comedy-drama about a flawed group of people that takes place in the 70's.

Don't see it if You are expecting a great show with great performances. A bit over acted in some cases, but still convincing enough to hold interest.

Indulgent, Quirky

See it if A classic comedy returns for a limited run. This played over 1800 performances originally and has many funny moments still.

Don't see it if Presented on a small stage limits this production and if your tired of dysfunctional people, it may not be for you.

"The play is endearingly dated...Innaurato’s piece was written before the dawn of the hyper-sensitivity that would make us feel guilty about laughing at the play’s 'politically incorrect' one-liners about ethnicity, class, weight, sexuality, and more. As a result, theater attendees in 2018 will probably find this THIS 'Gemini' more funny than audiences did 41 years ago...The entire cast of 'Gemini' is wonderful."

“I enjoyed this production. Though, at times, the show seemed to have a rather low energy. There are many moments in the play where the action is simply the actors standing around and talking to each other, which is not a problem in itself, though it seemed that a few times the actors were waiting for the next exciting thing to happen...When the play was allowed to land, it was a joy to watch, particularly, the moments between Francis and his father."
