Thought-provoking, Slow, Relevant, Ambitious, Profound

See it if you're game for ruminative ambitious, multimedia exploration of mind-bending work of RBolaño; for fresh/fraught take on political in/actiom

Don't see it if you can't with experimental theater; if you need narrative clarity & character-driven drama; if you need every mystery to be solved

"Would that the play were as clear and focused as the material describing it. Poetry is sometimes called a distillation, but here are seven poets in need of an editor. They ramble on, and on, and on. It should be noted at once that the cast is heroic, some inhabiting multiple roles...Until late in the second act there is no trajectory...Oh, the chasm between concept and execution! Here is a wealth of raw material crying to be shaped and polished."

"Some uniquely creative and thought-provoking theater...González has woven a tale of mystery and darkness; of poetry, an inexplicable murder and quiet disappearance, drawing us into a surreal world...An excellent ensemble of actors...play a variety of characters...Moving smoothly among fleeting identities, they sustain the performance with consistently focused energy...This production operates on several levels simultaneously...Milikowsky has created a dialogue among diverse elements."
