Relevant, Resonant, Intense, Entertaining, Emotional

See it if enjoy strong performances of contemporary issues.

Don't see it if can't handle tough issues or are uncomfortable with gay PDAs onstage

80
Absorbing, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Moving

See it if You are interested in plays dealing with socio-political issues very well written and acted, and want to support excellent community theater

Don't see it if You have negative preconceptions about the homeless and homosexuals and if you lack empathy for those who haven't found their American Dream

November 18th, 2016

"The raw yet tender drama of homelessness in New York City, brought to vivid life...All of this could have the potential to descend into melodrama, but Quinana’s script and David Mendizábal’s direction zero in on the ferocity of the characters’ pain while never sentimentalizing it...The holy setting is further realized by Jacob Subotnick’s soundscape and Julián Mesri’s original music, which keep the production moving and allow for moments that are beautifully transporting."

"Could not have a subject that is any more timely, provocative or pertinent to life in the so-called world’s borough...Quintana brings the small details of each person’s behavior together in a way that results in throughly believable individuals...The playwright brings a strong sense of humanity to each person, engaging the audience and driving the play’s message home...She is greatly aided in that effort by a strong cast."
