Intelligent, Entertaining, Enchanting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if A show worth seeing. Narrow is scope, very deep in plot. Story keeps your interest throughout the performance. Good story and good acting

Don't see it if Can be depressing not for everybody.

Thought-provoking, Great acting, Resonant, Quirky, Absorbing

See it if While Oliver's reconteur's skills are peerless, one's enjoyment depends on giving oneself over to them but love story for Victor is genuine

Don't see it if Again, Oliver often diverges from Victor's privations to encompass a larger picture requiring a certain surrender/patience but well worth it
