See it if You like stories from the 1890s or classic plays. The script still holds up and provides some laughs.
Don't see it if You don't like smaller shows, period pieces or older plays. The acting is a bit uneven.
See it if you want to hear Shaw's brilliant take-down of philosophy that the poor are to blame for their own poverty (tea party anyone?)
Don't see it if brilliant argumentation and zest of play is hampered by production that is periodically overacted and over-the-top
See it if I was told that this was a comedy: if so, where's the laughter? Despicable characters; not a one to like. Soon tire of their manipulations
Don't see it if you expect or want a Shaw comedy. No wonder it is seldom done.
