Quirky, Entertaining, Great writing, Great acting, Funny

See it if you're looking for a play that's smart, witty and well acted. Leads playing Rosencrantz and Guildenstern were both very good.

Don't see it if you're not interested in seeing what is essentially two actors talking thru the entire play. Also, a third act makes it seem rather long.

Excruciating, Slow, Banal, Confusing

See it if You like a modern twist of Shakespeare classic

Don't see it if You are not familiar with Hamlet, or you are looking for something more entertaining
