See it if An interesting story about Palestinian people. The Hope's and dreams they have and the challenges they face.
Don't see it if Sometimes was very difficult to both hear and understand these actors especially upstage. It could also be slow at times.
See it if Gives a voice to occupied people feeling that their aspirations for a better future are like trying to fly to the moon. Tender, forlorn.
Don't see it if Contrived engineering scenes. Jerky transitions. Predictable love triangle w/daughter's 2 suitors. Internet cliche. Slow & preachy in spots.
"Drawing on the Past, Living in the Present, Dreaming of the Future: A jazz memoirist, a Palestinian rocketeer and Mexican myths set to music kick off the Public Theater’s annual festival of adventurous work from across the globe."
"What’s Over the Top at the Under the Radar Festival?"
"A Palestinian Dreamer Builds a Rocket to Land on the Moon in 'GREY ROCK' at The Public Theater's Under the Radar Festival"
"While the chaos is filled with necessary, it's the setting of the play that makes it transcend Yusuf's dream…But this rising action (not to mention Natour's show-stealing performance) is engaging enough without the extra storylines about a love triangle."
Score: 85%. "'GREY ROCK' at The Public's Under the Radar festival by lead Palestinian Playwright, Amir Nizar Zuabi's is one hundred percent heart and dream. A poetic rally cry for anyone feeling uninspired, beaten down, or in need of a reminder of the power of dreaming."
