See it if you enjoy a beautiful, well thought out environment with gracious interpersonal moments between the performers and the audience.

See it if You enjoy lovely ambiance. You want to explore storytelling rather than stories.
Don't see it if You want a single, clear narrative. You dislike atypical seating.

Don't see it if you want to see a truly inventive or thoughtful take on a classical piece of the literary canon.

Don't see it if You are a fan of strong narrative lines.
