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 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.
See it if The story of a biracial gay couple raising a teenage girl in New England appeals to you.
Don't see it if LGBT themes don’t interest you. You need a story with a compelling plot and well-written characters.
See it if A play revolving around a family encounter with several issues :racial, same sex marriage & a teenaged girl who is its by product.
Don't see it if Current social issue & explicit gay relation offends you.
See it if Well written VERY ORIGINAL play that realistically reflects current society and racism. Wonderful production! I loved everyone in the cast
Don't see it if You're not interested in the emotional journey of a biracial "2 dads" family raising a teen. Engaging throughout but I was never verklempt
See it if The unique family,biracial gay couple w artificially inseminated daughter w anger, raises marital and parenting issues relevant to anyone.
Don't see it if You do not want to be challenged; cannot accept gay intimacy, even though not offensive.
See it if you like great, superbly constructed drama that will deeply resonate no matter your age, race, gender orientation. Yes, there’s humor,too.
Don't see it if you mainly like comedy, and light-weight stuff.
See it if U want to see LGBT, social and interracial themes on stage... with two especially good performances from young Kara Young and Adam Langdon
Don't see it if U expect believable, logical plotting and resolution. And the playwright should spend more time in New England before setting a play there.
See it if I was a little disappointed when I was watching the performance. I did not realize the girl Kara Young would not be singing. Enjoyed it.
Don't see it if No singing if you are a Lauren Hill fan. And the young girl was very aggressive (part of the show).
