Relevant, Difficult sightlines, Strong script, Ambitious, Long

See it if you're a Miller fan. TC is a powerful play, but needs cuts. Uneven acting abilities, altho all are capable. Evil of power abuse is relevant.

Don't see it if you can't sit for 3 hrs. Or dislike melodrama. Or get annoyed at OOB issues: hot room, bad lighting, bad sightlines, lost words to A/C roar.

Entertaining, Intelligent, Indulgent, Ambitious

See it if A classic Miller play. Has a bit of a different ending than what was the original. Good acting for the most part. Simple set directed well.

Don't see it if A close to three hour show. Uncomfortable seats . It gets slow at one point.if you want big staging, bigger production.

"This often spellbinding and emotional HUNGER THEATER production showcased a surprisingly phenomenal cast of talented actors, including experienced and novice talent of all ages...An enormously entertaining and a most provocative production. What began as a mere spark in the dark concluded with a glistening tear of truth. I left feeling that within ourselves, we grasp the power of the conclusive verdict of a controversial subject."
