From the show:
Can you ever really live the life you envisioned? In a mixed race family, a teenaged daughter and her dads are all trying to find happiness. Eisa wants to be the next Lauryn Hill and is struggling to break free of her sleepy New England town where she feels hopelessly trapped. Her fathers are being pulled in different directions of their own, one trying to re-connect with an old love, the other clinging to the path he always believed would be their future.
See it if Mixed race 2-dad 1-daughter family discover how isolated, lonely and disconnected they are. Some creative ideas & slice-of-life elements.
Don't see it if Not credible. The characters are too thin, and have inconsistent bizarre behavior. The teens are especially contrived. Band-aid ending.
See it if u want a front porch view of a seemingly ordinary (albeit mixed race & gay) family whose cracks in their cheery facade get a cursory probe.
Don't see it if u expect any deep insight re: mixed coupling, gay marriage, discrimination, teen angst, drug use or the perceived tranquility of New England
See it if you want a surface look at race relations, at marriage, at parenthood.Directing left some good actors floundering.Writing is weak.
Don't see it if you are looking for a show that advances the discussion of gay marriage, interracial relationships, parenthood.
See it if You enjoy an interracial comedy(?) about gay dads and their HS daughter. It hits notes when it is serious
Don't see it if A poorly developed piece with too many side issues is low on your list
See it if and only if you are a fan of Arnulfo Maldonado scenic designs, and then maybe then you might enjoy the wooden performances on stage.
Don't see it if you are expecting a REAL story about a modern family, because you will be DISAPPOINTED by this tripe, as I was.
See it if you want to see a play that is very relevant with some tones of humor.
Don't see it if you want to see something with substance. Way too many and ridiculous story lines with make no meaning with such serious subjects.
See it if you're ok w pointless plot & inconsistent chars. Strg staging, clever lines, rapid pace, solid acting. BUT early promise turns into a mess.
Don't see it if you want meaning, not just entertainment. Important issues dealt with irresponsibly. Tone shifts wildly. Script needs lots of work.
See it if you like good acting, an interesting plot, the themes of racial and sexual discrimination in our society, parenting & educational issues.
Don't see it if you like good acting, an interesting plot, the themes of racial and sexual discrimination in our society, parenting & educational issues.
See it if You enjoy works exploring racial relations, LGBTQ issues and parenthood.
Don't see it if You are a highly discriminating theater-goer. Despite being occasionally funny and insightful, the script disappoints.
