Quirky, Ambitious, Entertaining, Great singing, Clever

See it if you would like to see a lot of talent on a small stage with great voices, well choreographed and with inventive costumes and props.

Don't see it if 12 voices singing some difficult songs don't allow for clarity of words, sound & light issues distract or you do not like being preached to.

Very ambitious, Great choral singing, Oratorio-like, Bucket percussion, Improvised costumes and set

See it if Ancient text of Revelation enacted, recited, and sung; complete with seals, horsemen, trumpets, angels, bowls, plagues & finally redemption.

Don't see it if If you don’t find religion-based shows tolerable. Small venue, crowded stage, over-filled with energetic acting troupe.

Quirky, Intense, Dizzying, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if You want to see Revelation verbatim. In song and in stomp warehouse style. I liked the troupe and the visuals. The play ran a bit long.

Don't see it if You don’t like religious plays. This was quoted straight from the Bible

Great staging, Great singing, Funny, Exquisite, Entertaining

See it if Want to see completely unusual show where actors have good, very good and beautiful voices. Interesting usage of recycling materials.

Don't see it if Partial A cappella singing is not what you like. Some songs were hard to understand (sound engineer's problem?). Dislike multicultural cast

Great singing, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you wish to hear the book of revelations performed in modern musical style with some excellent singing and at time good melodies.

Enchanting, Ambitious, Clever, Absorbing

See it if Great use of props, staging, musical and rhythmic variety add interest into symbolic storytelling. Engaging creatively

Don't see it if An easy-to-understand plot is essential to your enjoyment of a show - this is complex and heavily symbolic but it moves along rapidly
