Compassionate, Funny, Edgy, Relevant, Resonant

See it if Nervy #metoo play w/twists. Racial & sexual abuse themes. Shifting power dynamics. Funny moments amidst the pain. Excellent acting/staging.

Don't see it if After the thrilling fireworks of the first 3/4 of the play, the last 1/4 felt like an extended denouement. A bit contrived in spots.

Great writing, Great acting, Funny, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you love good theater with a dynamic plot and great characters. The acting is terrific. Some very funny and unexpected material.

Don't see it if you have issues with May December relationships or cannot empathize with characters acknowledging difficult life positions.
