See it if you're up for a sharply performed, lively and compelling evening of Shaw that succeeds in going beyond epigram, argument or lecture
Don't see it if you can't sit through a 3 hour drama, no matter how fast-paced, or if you don't like Discussion plays, no matter how conversational & funny.
See it if Major Barbara has surprising parallels to today. Great acting and innovative staging breathe new life in this Shaw that you read in H.S
Don't see it if You have horrible memories of required H.S. reading lists.
"Helluva Theatre Company - newly formed under the mission to produce plays from the traditional canon that aren't often seen - has ambitiously chosen George Bernard Shaw's 'Major Barbara' as its inaugural production. The dialogue-heavy, two-and-a-half-hour play set in 1906 was resurrected by Helluva Theatre in part for its parallels to our current societal conversation concerning the relationship between wealth and power (and the complex dilemmas of morality therein)."
