Ambitious, Refreshing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if A sincere dance-based, almost experimental theatrical event telling a life's story. Exquisitely and exactly staged. Intimate and refreshing.

Don't see it if looking for a huge brassy production.

"All incident and no insight...The piece is a catalog of events with no introspection. Then again, the events kind of speak for themselves. 'The Mar Vista’s' saving grace is its visual appeal. Which may seem odd for a piece performed in a black box theater with no scenery...Hyman’s clever and inventive staging kept me involved and interested in what was happening on stage, if not why it was...The intellect has to be engaged and purpose has to enter the picture."
