Nostalgic, Profound, Clever writing, Brilliant acting

See it if you like good old standard theatrical plays. Rather challenging to follow script executed well. Funny sometimes and makes you think.

Don't see it if non stop 2 hours wordy play that needs your attention all the time (otherwise you lose the plot) is too much for you. Read more

Great staging, Great acting, Entertaining, Clever, Ambitious

See it if Loved the concept, all actors. Didnt expect J.L. Miller to be such a fine actor. People who live in autocracy will appreciate it even more.

Don't see it if You can not sit through a two hour play where you actually should pay attention to undertand the concept in the first 30 min especially.

There’s an enjoyable twist in the tale, but ultimately A Mirror doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know about censorship. A compelling story, but unnecessarily convoluted at times.
