Diverse responses

As an example of subjective responses to the same production, read the split comments on Charles Isherwood's review of Sarah Ruhl's In the Next Room, or, The Vibrator Play.
I haven't read or seen the play, so can't judge. But based on the review and 16 (so far) comments, it's hard to tell what's going on here. I'm a Ruhl fan, so fingers crossed.
Responses seem to divide (please tell me what you think) along the lines of "It's just a one-joke sex comedy" to "No, it's that and also an examination of sexual politics and other such issues."
