Absorbing, Great acting, Ambitious, Masterful, Thought-provoking

See it if you love a thoughtful play with a timeless theme...family dynamics at the center...exploring characters and their dynamics...artful staging

Lacks empathy, Mediocre singing, Terrible staging, Insipid, Disappointing

See it if you want chili and corn bread (free) at intermission; see it if you would like to see and hear a really good orchestra playing the music.
