See it if You want a personal look at the early AIDS crisis. You want to see very talented actors.
Don't see it if You want sharp writing & clear transitions: the writing is repetitive & the scene endings trail off-I didn't know the act or play was over!
See it if You just want to see good performances.
Don't see it if You want a new take on an old story we've seen too many times.
"The actors overact their parts while trying to drive home the profundity of Deitz’s language…Jody's reserved personality feels more affected than lived in. Smith’s Carl is another kind of affected—the stereotypical gay man…Given that both actors, clearly talented, suffer from the same issue, the problem may lie more in a lack of direction…Yet given these drawbacks, 'Lonely Planet' is still a beautiful play, something this production both understands and is able to communicate."
