Intense, Fresh perspective, Thought-provoking, Big-hearted, Absorbing

See it if you're intrigued by a life full of challenges, including the Hispanic male immigrant experience. Individual becomes universal in struggles.

Don't see it if you need to understand every word. Some of the dialogue is in Spanish. I found his triumph powerful, but there are violent stories.

Entertaining, Riveting, Intense, Great acting, Edgy

See it if you like one-person shows where the actor plays multiple characters flawlessly with tough street language through situations funny and sad.

Don't see it if you don't like rough language, uncomfortable situations or loud rap music. The great projections need superscript for non Spanish speakers.

Don't see it if Loud music, cursing & descriptions of teen gang activities make you uncomfortable. Also Spanish is used extensively without any translation

Entertaining, Dizzying, Cliched
