Great staging, Great writing, Masterful, Must see, Resonant

See it if DONT MISS IT. This is a birth of a new type of theater and it was done brilliantly. Some compare it to Ivo van Hove's Network, it is NOT.

Don't see it if Dont get the rows in the orchestra close to the stage. Ideally, row G and up. There are lots of projections and you wont appreciate sitting Read more

Masterful, Must see, Great acting, Great staging, Absorbing

See it if WOW. JUST WOW. Brilliantly staged and acted. Snook is phenomenal. A must see. Thrilling from the 1st second.

Don't see it if Some lines are delivered very fast. If you struggle with the English language, this is not for you.

Technology firsts, Riveting, Must see, Masterful, Great acting

See it if You want to experience the different and NEW in theater, with an actress who is everything. And I am one of those tired of cameras on stage.

Don't see it if You are fully wedded to traditional theater and don't have interest in anything beyond the traditional, or will be alarmed by huge screens. Read more

Clever, Riveting, Masterful, Great staging, Great acting

See it if You want to see an innovative production—how they manage to tell the story with one actress—and a tour de force performance.

Don't see it if You dislike actors playing multiple parts at once, talking to each other, or you dislike shows that rely heavily on technology. Read more

Epic, Great staging, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You want to see an actress at the top of their game giving a tour de force performance, a highly technical production. Must-See

Don't see it if You're not a fan of production design which relies on video.

Great acting and awesome technology

See it if You want to see Succession’s Shiv doing something radically different.

Don't see it if You don’t appreciate human beings interacting with their video images.

21st century staging, Modern, Edgy, Innovative, Absorbing

See it if you want your Wilde modern, razor-sharp and updated.

Don't see it if you struggle with too much technology. Cameras are the new art form, bohemian children of London.
