Well acted, Well staged, Intense, Overrated

See it if you like strong acting. Brilliant to have handsome BC contort into the disfigured EMan. Society's reaction to "others" is impt to consider.

Don't see it if Questioning the dr's goodness wasn't interesting. Nivola was stiff. The play isn't as powerful as I'd remembered. Still, solid production.
