Slow, Intense, Ambitious

See it if Story of holocaust to by family member. Good 1st act.

Don't see it if 2end act gets to convoluted.

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

See it if you have interest in family genealogy and wish you had asked questions while ancestors were still alive. Lighting and projections are good.

Don't see it if you do not like long productions - this feels like the play may never end with a couple false "ends" that reveal more of the story.

Confusing, Edgy, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy theater based on biographic material. The actors do a splendid job of doubling & tripling rolls in this complex layered story

Don't see it if Holocaust themes are distressing for you.

Repetitious, Overrated, Thought-provoking, Indulgent, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy plays about the Holocaust & extended impact on surviving families, enjoy memory plays with narrator, open to new plot twists

Don't see it if You shy away from Holocaust stories, don't like self-indulgent stories that move in unexpected directions or exasperating characters

"A riveting dramatization of the lives of real people as preserved in their letters. It's the only way to hear their voices again as memory slips into history."
