See it if you’d like to see fine productions of 2 great plays from the greatest playwright the Off-off-B’way movement produced.

Thought-provoking, Great acting, Edgy, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you are comfortable with very off-off broadway and enjoy a double bill, one opera and one more a table reading

Don't see it if you prefer upbeat straight up, linear, literal stories/acting
