See it if You like plays focusing on the writing, directing and acting, about imaginary histories, LGBT life.
Don't see it if You don't like depictions of gay lives/histories onstage.
See it if You want to see a complex view of those b&w shows of your childhood (or older) which includes same-sex enchantment.
Don't see it if Well, you might cry.
See it if You like classic Hollywood sci-fi stories and want to get swept away to another time...which isn't that far from this time.
Don't see it if You want big sets and special effects. The performers do all of that!
See it if You want to see a well performed show that makes you feel emotions and laugh.
Don't see it if You can't relate to how things were in the 50's/60's
See it if you like queer content and like it even more when it's multi-dimensional; like great, fun acting; enjoy surprises; remember Lost in Space
Don't see it if you have no love for first-person narrative storytelling; you lost your soul in a late-night game of Fireball pong; nah. just see it.
See it if You're interested in the history of pop culture, LGBT stories, slash fiction, Old Hollywood, interesting storytelling techniques
Don't see it if you're a homophobe or you don't care about anything older than Madonna
See it if You're a writer oryou acted out TV shows with your friends when you were a kid (my show was "The Man from U.N.C.L.E).

See it if you like great writing, have a sense of humor, and don't mind having your heartstrings pulled a bit. Beautiful show.
Don't see it if you need elaborate sets to draw you into a play, or if you are a cold-hearted clod with no humanity. Everyone else should love it.
See it if ... you're a compassionate human being. If you have the capacity to be on a thoughtful journey with a grateful dreamer & laugh along her way
