About:  I try to see as much theater as I can. I prefer the musical previews so that I don't know much about the show before seeing it. The more I see, the more I want to see more

Where We Stand
Upper W Side
Slow, Great acting, Confusing

See it if you like shows that build and require the audience to be engaged through a tale. It's a good idea but, it was a little slow for me

Don't see it if your looking for a traditional theater work or musical with a strong dialogue.

Indulgent, Ambitious, Great singing
