Great singing, Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Intelligent, Great staging

See it if you enjoy dance with a message. Here the arts of the spoken and sung word are marvelously twinned with dance & projection in a big way.

Don't see it if you expect a play or a musical. This is beyond that in a combination of the arts with powerful messages.

Don't see it if want a play with a narrative or want a true dance piece. May not be for everyone. Fans of Bill T Jones would enjoy this though

Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Great staging, Epic, Dizzying

See it if you like Bill T. Jones and epic performance. Staging is brilliant. Goes deep into both the personal and the political. The design is wow!

Don't see it if you want to just watch dance and not get too immersed - much is being thrown at the viewer at once and it overwhelms the senses.

Confusing, Great staging, Poignant, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy large venue multi media productions with interesting choreography and dance narrated by Bill Jones.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy nonlinear story telling which is a bit confusing to follow.

Shallow, Great staging, Disappointing

See it if want to see great staging with dramatic lighting and projections.

Don't see it if you want to see a pure dance performance, or a performance piece that merges the elements into a coherent, thought-provoking work.

The New York Times

"Yet while visually and sonically stunning, the many moving parts of “Deep Blue Sea” too often drown out the potency of the dancing itself."
