Profound, Relevant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you appreciate dramatic monologues; if you enjoy seeing movie and theater stars in a different setting; of you support fundraisers.

Don't see it if you're looking for a night of light entertainment - while there's music and a bit of levity, it's mostly intense and moving stories.

Intense, Great acting, Relevant, Slow

See it if you want to see some masterful monologues. Andrew Garfield left me crying. Audra McDonald made me smile.

Don't see it if you don't want to hear about rape, incest, gang violence, HIV, and even murder.

Thought-provoking, Intense, Profound, Great acting

See it if you enjoy great actors performing moving monologues adapted from African children's stories.

Don't see it if you don't like show focused on the performance, without a scenography, and mostly about though, sad subjects. Read more

Clever, Confusing, Intense, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you have 3 hours to spare - it is long. But it is so touching. Each story is more profound than the last.

Don't see it if you are sensitive. The topics covered in the show are not pretty & some will bring you to tears & open your eyes to the horrors of the world
