Relevant, Insipid, Quirky, Entertaining, Clever

See it if to learn a little about her contribution to the science & her disappointment on initial rejection & a bit more about her personal life.

Don't see it if lots of scene changes, breaking the fourth wall, lighting changes or background sounds interfering w/hearing accented voice are not for you.

Amateurish, Indulgent, Excruciating, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if Honestly, the only reason I can imagine to see this is because it does tell the story of Lamarr's life. And she did have an interesting life

Don't see it if you expect a well-written play & competent acting. Actors were amateurish and didn't know their lines. The play was not performance quality.

Disappointing, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you're curious about Hedy Lamar's interesting and complex life or you enjoy shows that highlight the lives of women.

Don't see it if you want any real understanding of Lamar's life beyond her many disappointing marriages. I hoped for context for her scientific interest.
