Intense, Epic, Great acting, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if Rare chance to see the 3 part play done in full. Huge production, excellent designs, superb acting, enthralling, demanding, intense.

Don't see it if you can't get involved in a demanding four hour play. A little repetitive and indulgent writing at times with a few confusing elements.

Profound, Intelligent, Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like Greek tragedy and you want to see an outstanding production of the three plays in the trilogy. Cleverly staged, great acting!

Don't see it if you don't like Greek tragedy, you are confused by poetic language or you don't know when characters are murdered! (These are done off stage

Strong choreography, Intelligent, Absorbing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you are familiar with the story or spend time reading a synopsis-a valiant effort to present an entertainment with good costumes and makeup.

Don't see it if you do not like old stories of the Grecian gods with some old-style language or if you are impatient and looking for lots of action.

Lyrical, Great staging, Epic, Slow, Ambitious

See it if You've at least a passing interest in the Greek classics; this production offers an accessible, approachable interpretation

Don't see it if The 4 hour runtime may prove a deal-breaker for some, particularly as the traditional chorus means there's plenty of "tell, don't show"

Ambitious, Slow, Dated, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if You like Greek tragedies. Uneven cast. Some are great but others less so. One actor needed to read from his script. Overall good but flawed

Don't see it if You have no interest in Greek mythology

Absorbing, Riveting, Epic, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you’re interested in Greek tragedies or mythology.

Don't see it if you have trouble with non-contemporary language or have a hard time sitting still for a long time (the complete trilogy is 4 hours).
