See it if you want to explore & think hard about how we share information today; it's an open-ended participatory work that challenges perceptions.

Don't see it if you don't want to use your smartphone (or don't have one) in the performance; this show works best if you participate. Come w/an open mind.

See it if Story of human resilience in founding of Israel following Holocaust a must see for Jews like me. Cried thru Act 2. An important moving show.

Don't see it if You've got no soul and don't like a good old fashioned uplifting melodrama. It's like an 50s Douglas Sirk movie with awesome score.

See it if you've been thinking about heading to a silent retreat but haven't gotten around to it. I left feeling like I'd been right there with them.

Don't see it if you need words and a comfortable seat in order to feel at home at the theater. Or if yogis, gurus, nudity, and nature make you uncomfortable
