Edgy, Intelligent, Slow, Ambitious

See it if If you want a coming of age story. Music drowns words at times. Decent direction and acting.

Don't see it if If you do not like LGBTQ stories. If you do not like smaller venues with little to no AC.

Quirky, Slow, Entertaining, Great acting, Relevant

See it if you like new theater with honest representation of characters, mostly very well played by this cast, sharing important messages for society.

Don't see it if hearing every word is important as music sometimes drowns actors and multi-directional speaking is often lost. Some tough editing needed.
