Dated, Boring, Monotonous, Slow, Disappointing

See it if You really enjoy stripped down versions of stories that are adapted from novels and earlier plays and films.

Don't see it if You need more than a one sentence plot to hold your attention. I found the dialogue very monotonous. The lead was miscast. She is far too Read more

Condensed, Depressing, Classic except for the bare bones staging, Fine acting

See it if you know & love the book/Bway play/classic movie & want to see an abbreviated version-everyone else may find it hard to follow

Don't see it if you are not interested in the sharply critical, punitive, self-protective "family values" of the Gilded Age in 19th Century NYC Read more

Builds to a decent crescendo, Slow, Redeeming story line, Decent acting

See it if You don’t mind waiting through a very slow beginning for a perhaps rewarding finish.

Don't see it if You would like the entire show to be entertaining and you can’t wait for an interesting climax

Well costumed,, Confusing, Slow, Great acting

See it if you want to see a fresh take on the Henry James novella, you like theater stripped down to the bare essentials

Don't see it if you prefer to be convinced by period sets , you want a comedy

Minimalist, Great writing, Intelligent, Quirky, Good acting

See it if If you know/like the novel and you would like to see an extremely stripped down version of the play

Don't see it if If you expect a lavish production. Four actors and two armchairs, on a bare small stage, are all you get here.
