Edgy, Quirky, Slow, Great acting, Clever

See it if you want to see Ntozake Shange's work adapted and directed by her sister with nice music compositions and interesting choreography.

Don't see it if you do not like conflict and a central character who uses people to no end. An extremely long first act at almost 2 hours is difficult.

Score: 65% "The dialogue is part prose and part poetry and has a lovely richness to it. Unfortunately, it is lost to over staging, music, and dance."
