Last week I saw "Of Mice and Men" and thought it was the best play that I've seen in years! There was an instant standing ovation at the end, so I was not the only one that felt that way. It's intense (and at times disturbing) with incredible acting and a beautiful set.

See the show before you pass judgment.

This review was fair, describing both the good and bad aspects.
