Absorbing, Exquisite, Great acting, Great writing, Original

See it if You love original stories and powerful performances. This is a refreshing play that captivates the heart, the mind, and the soul.

Exquisite, Great writing, Masterful, Intense, Profound

See it if you want to see stunning writing for the stage. Stephen Adly Guirgis is one of our best dramatists and this play is one of his best.

Don't see it if you don't like plays about real people or with strong language. The characters can be morally ambiguous and that may bother some,

Solid performances, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if Overall a top notch theater experience. Talented performers who work well together. A tale well told.

Don't see it if Show involves issues of racisms, religion, government graft, inequity, religion. Perhaps too uncomfortable for some viewers.
