Disappointing, Indulgent, Ambitious, Amateur production

See it if a play that once starred Kirk Douglas and made into a movie starring Jack Nicholson. Should not have been done by a community theater group.

Don't see it if you are looking for a play that needs great actors and direction but is missing both.

Ambitious, Valiant effort, Indulgent, Uneven acting
