Disappointing, Intelligent, Slow

See it if you enjoy a history lesson

Don't see it if you expect a "show". Interesting if you are a history buff

Ambitious, Absorbing, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Great staging

See it if you are interested in historical figures and learning more about them and their American experiences and stories.

Don't see it if you aren't interested in the people who have made our country what it is and what they have gone through.

Riveting, Relevant, Profound, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you would enjoy a riveting love poem to America's heroines and heroes, especially ones you've never heard of. I loved this play. A must see!

Don't see it if aren't interested in history or wouldn't enjoy meeting the champions who sacrificed so much to improve society and modern day civil rights.

Absorbing, Delightful, Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you enjoy grass roots theater at its best with a meaningful message about America. Left me thinking more about what I could contribute!

Don't see it if you prefer traditional theater, light entertainment or a musical. Makes you think more about society and your role in it.

Great writing, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Must see, Masterful

See it if I think that every American, or aspiring American, 14 years+, must see the show and be inspired to make our country a "more perfect union".

Don't see it if It's too historically dense (and intense) for kids under the age of 14. Read more

Relevant, Thought-provoking, Educational, Talented cast, Historical

See it if ... you want to learn from thoughts of past figures & some current personalities to see how they are relevant to current day political views

Don't see it if ... you do not have the desire to think about your individual participation to try to contribute to a better world.

Stage Buddy

"Has great potential to fill in the gaps of what we are taught about our history in the school system, and for that it should be applauded...Yet while it is impressive that the production strives to tell as many stories of American history as possible, the delivery is uneven and heavy-handed, at some points just a massive hodgepodge of quotes and impressions of historical figures...Certainly an informative play, and I imagine it would be a wonderful resource for educators and their students."
