Intelligent, Intense, Great singing, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if you like small-scale theater; multi-talented performances by a solo actor; intimate story about the Holocaust. Touching.

Don't see it if you like large productions with a lot of action, musicals, multiple characters; aren't interested in personal stories about the Holocaust.
