Cliched, Dated, Disappointing, Indulgent, Great singing

See it if you know those involved, are interested in amateur musical development, will enjoy well-sung, if very conventional, musicals numbers.

Don't see it if you're expecting any resemblance to the "source" material (Cane), or have issues with a nearly all-white creative team tackling this story.

Enchanting, Entertaining, Masterful, Riveting, Great singing

See it if You want an ambitious and successfully executed in most places story song cycle.

Don't see it if You're annoyed by audience using recording devices undisturbed by ushers.

August 17th, 2016

"Soulful, expressive music combined with dramatic narration to depict a tragic love triangle…The lack of dialogue leaves something to be desired—possibly because the plot has the potential to shine as something more than just narration. I look forward to one day seeing a fully realized production…The band's infectious energy makes it hard to avoid swaying, clapping along, and tapping one's toes. 'Red Devil Moon' ultimately provides an entertaining experience."

"An original, provocative, and colossal work. Every song hits a pain spot in your synapses and makes you feel the emotion deeply, right to the bone…Karen Somerville, Lester Barrett Jr., and Jerome McKinney opened their mouths and their souls flew out to meet our open hearts. The sound vibrated my chakras and left them spinning in bliss…I can’t wait for the full-length musical version–and especially the cast album, which will be on repeat for a good long while."
