Exquisite direction, Engrossing, Mark rylance!

See it if you like medical historical dramas, with a strong lead and directorial touches that include a live string quartet and choreographed dancers

Don’t see it if you'd rather avoid shows with themes of medical suffering, especially of pregnant women. Also, 2nd act lags, after an electrifying first act
