Weak plot & characters, Absurdist, Physical, Farcical, Third person narration

See it if Amusement with the grand sweep & folly of life. Sexual antics, births, violence & death for a family’s 7 generations. Fun choreography.

Don't see it if Dancers in lingerie can’t sustain a 2+ hour show without much plot or character depth. Narration of 3rd person text from the book. Shouting.

Messy, Energetic,, Unique,

See it if you want to see a merry band of actors embrace a show, a director's vision and the work itself.

Don't see it if you expect to understand a whole lot of what's going on. Read more

The cast is inspiring, Ambitious, Dizzying, Clever

See it if Plot very difficult to follow given multiple characters with bizarre folk lore story - born with a pig's tail- but sit back and enjoy spirit

Don't see it if Off Broadway with bare essentials, with winding story lines that may lose you, yet different, with an immensely charismatic cast.

Raunchy, Clever, Epic, Great staging, Great singing

See it if You like 3 hours of an epic story very creatively acted & performed. Tip top direction. There is a lot of histrionics, Shouting, high energy

Don't see it if Show drags in parts was a bit too long but masterful performances and sexy women and rousing songs save the day.Seen the group before v good

Dizzying, Disappointing, Banal

See it if You have nothing going on. Staging is entertaining and the cast is good looking.

Don't see it if You have no patience.

Slow, Insipid, Excruciating, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if If you’re into the art of clowning and no followable story line

Don't see it if I left at intermission I couldn’t take any more of a conflict and drama free experience. It felt like watching an acting cult do a show.
