Clever, Great staging, Funny, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy good comedy-drama performed by an able cast with on a superb set, changing nicely with each act. Sound and lighting both pluses.

Don't see it if you want a lot of physical action - this is mostly talk among a small group for over two hours making the slightly padded seating wearing.

Refreshing, Great acting, Dated, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You like the kitchen sink style of storytelling. You want a mix of comedy & drama. You want an charmingly retro play that entertains.

Don't see it if You only want to see the movie cast. You don't like one- set plays where you hear about events. You want a more contemporary story.

Intelligent, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy realistic drama/comedy about the lives of small town women. You have seen the movie and loved it. You’re willing to go to Brooklyn

Don't see it if You are looking for a fancy production. This is as down home as it gets ! You prefer shows with lots of physical action.
