Confusing, Ambitious, Slow, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if Free's dense, historical epic takes four constructs of black masculinity & weaves them though the Osiris myth Well acted but often demanding

Don't see it if Difficult, opaque opening segment stalls momentum but Cohn's staging jump-starts plot Rigorously intelligent & rightously angry throughout

Confusing, Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if you're able to follow multiple story lines that are at times seemingly unrelated.

Don't see it if you're looking for a straight forward linear plot. Read more

"A play must work on its own terms, and unfortunately, 'Am I Dead?' is preachy, repetitive, and heavy-handed. It outlines its messages in bold and italic again and again, and good theatrical moments go from being hard-hitting and impressive to boring and even annoying. Perhaps the biggest flaw is that it lacks compassion...It's a theatrical necessity for the play to work. Presented without compassion, the main characters become flat."
