Absorbing, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if Fine acting by most of the cast but for two. We have not seen it since 1987 at Roundabout Union Square. And it should be seen by all..

Don't see it if Not a happy story. but it reflects every society. You are on stage with the cast.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Riveting

See it if very well done version of the book; great acting by the leads as well as others.

Don't see it if you don't like small theater plays; you need multiple sets; you don't like a period piece or hated the book

"A great production...It is true to the text and conveys the complexity of men's friendships in a way rarely seen today or in the 1930s, the era in which the play is set. It is hard for me to recall another play with such spot-on casting. Gordon as George and Kafarakis as Lennie are excellent foils playing this iconic pair...It was easy to tell when the characters were somewhere new despite the set not changing. The sound, lighting, direction and acting ensure the audience is never left behind."
