In "Blue Ridge" a progressive high-school teacher with a rage problem retaliates against her unscrupulous boss and is sentenced to six months at a church-sponsored halfway house, where she attends to everyone's recovery but her own.
See it if great acting trying it's best to improve a poorly written script
Don't see it if don't like poor direction and poorly developed characters with a pointless and confusing plot
See it if you want to see some good acting-but not from Marin Ireland.I found her performance irritating, fussy, mannered, full of fury but empty.
Don't see it if you value your time & know that there is so much better theatre out there to experience.
See it if You are such a Marin Ireland fan that you must see and will enjoy everything she is in (as I thought I was — I was wrong).
Don't see it if Halfway through the first act, the story, the staging, the acting led me to conclude that I wouldn’t make it past the intermission.
See it if you like Gilmore Girls dialogue; chattery, banal small talk moving at a snail’s pace; have a shallow interest in 12 step programs.
Don't see it if you want something to happen already. Something. Anything. All-star talent wasted on immature playwrighting.
See it if you like plays about people sitting around talking with no conflict or dramatic tension. Excellent hearing. The actors mumble. It's slow.
Don't see it if You have hearing problems, like plays with a plot and characters you care about.
See it if new to the work of Marin Ireland and Abby Rosebrock's writing I learned a lot from both, knowledge is power and so is cash in the pocket.
Don't see it if expectation is for a comedy, or a drama with a life changing message, it's 2 hrs. that seemed like 75 years. The Theatre's cold too
See it if You like any of the actors. Although it's not enjoyable watching them wade through this play. Unbearable, I left before it ended.
Don't see it if You like a tight, well written play, u won't find that here. You don't want to squirm in your seat waiting for it to get better. It won't!
