Ambitious, Great writing, Strong acting, Intense, Long

See it if you like a strong script/acting. No prodn values, but space is well-used. Several leads stood out. Opens badly, improves. English herstory.

Don't see it if you don't know the basics of plot (you'll be lost). Or you get impatient w unnecy dances. I liked music/lights. Hurray for all-female cast!

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Refreshing, Intense

See it if you like strong female characters and are interested in history.

Don't see it if you aren't interested in history or long plays.

Ambitious, Confusing

See it if The play itself is pretty interesting, especially if you are somewhat familiar with British history and the story of Mary Queen of Scots.

Don't see it if Acting, directing and staging are mediocre. The play itself is long enough, so adding pantomime and contemporary music doesn't help

60
Slow, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if You enjoy historical dramas and like small productions with a lot of monologues. Great female leads but lack a balanced counterpart

Don't see it if The modern approach of the play fell short and some of the performances although passionate felt long and overwhelming.

96
Absorbing, Ambitious, Great acting, Great staging, Epic

See it if You love a strong female cast and want to see a unique telling of a historic tale. Excellent movement pieces incorporated as well.

Don't see it if You can’t sit through a long show, don’t like combining classic and modern staging and ideas, or if you want to see men onstage.

92
Great staging, Relevant, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You enjoy female-driven performance, creative use of staging, good acting, creative adaptations, thought-provoking historical pieces

Don't see it if You only like plays with an intermission, you only go for comedies, you only like large traditional stages and staging.
