Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You're a Tenn Williams fan. Wonderful, intimate production. They loan you hand fans at the concession stand and water and snacks are only $2

Don't see it if You aren't familiar with Tenn Williams' work. This isn't one to cut your teeth on. If a/c is a must you could have a problem, but worth it

Challenging, Haunting, Ambitious, Intimate, Poetic

See it if you care about the hold siblings can have on one another, and the thin line between actors and the characters they are playing.

Don't see it if you need linear, plot-driven drama instead of character study, or only like the commercial successes of our most ambitious playwrights. Read more
