Don't see it if you want a production as vivid as the people involved (in spite of the very good actors). Very talky.

See it if It started out with a blinding light..and got worse from there. Marsha Mason and Marin Mazzie were underutilized but their acting is great.
Don't see it if Confusing and boring and the sound was not good. The pace was too slow.
