Not fully realized, Ambitious, Funny, Interesting perspective, Resonant

See it if for the fabulous, sexy mermaid dance, for the puppets, for the glorious & very unusual depiction of a mature woman with adult daughters

Don't see it if a somewhat vague plot point will spoil your appreciation for a well written play with excellent performers and interesting staging.

Funny, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if you like explorations of mother/daughter and/or sister/family relationships.

Don't see it if you're looking for new analysis of the above relationships. Not alot of new territory covered here
