Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see an intense adaptation of this play. The in the round staging gives the audience ring side seats for this power play.

Don't see it if You don’t want to see this play of sexuality, status & revenge unfold in all its graphic & powerfully acted glory. Cast is very committed.

See it if You want to see a glimpse into the real life terror of gay life in modern day Russia. The script is well done. Fantastic job by the cast!

Don't see it if You are not into very physical violence. The play is very hard to watch but it speaks volumes in its truth and message.

See it if You want a barrage of color, music & sex. A highly stylized piece that excites with aggressive choreo, inventive costumes & great songs.

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with anything outside the box. This show felt so polished until it abruptly came to an end. Left me feeling had.

See it if You enjoy trite lyrics, wobbly scaffolding, uneasy staging & unenthusiastic applause. If 2 hrs & 20 mins of your eve isn’t important to you.

Don't see it if You want to see wasted talent of the fabulous Samantha Marie Ware. She is a star. She deserves more than this musical had to offer her.

See it if You have an interest in hospice or end of life care. This play is a view into the family drama of an ailing mother’s last days.

Don't see it if You are expecting something brilliant. I was suckered in by reviews & was let down. Lois Smith is a gem but the cast seemed to phone it in.
