See it if you love a thoughtful, totally relevant, well acted, political comedy/drama about gun control and a dysfunctional family.
Don't see it if no you must see it but unfortunately tonight was the last fringe performance (I hope President Obama sees it someday).
See it if You enjoy provocative theatre. Personally though, I wish "Godot" had remained an imagined fear and the story/conceits simplified.
Don't see it if You don't like being hit over the head with a message (even one you agree with).
“The cast is spectacular, and John Moore’s powerful script is further energized by incredible sound design from director Brian Freeland. His use of ominous music accompanying various gun-related tragedies provides great touches to this wonderful work. The production design by Luxbomb Tricycle is yet another great addition to the piece. From the acting, to the stage design, to the themes, ‘Waiting for Obama’ easily earns its place as a Theasy Best Bet.”
"Statistics and current events in media are presented in recurring heavy-handed interludes, or are integrated clumsily into the dialogue...The conclusion of the play is the most predictable finale to a gun violence play you could possibly anticipate...Text aside, I admired the production design...Every actor really did his or her job, but Leslie O’Carroll and Laurence Curry turn out show-stealing performances that truly redeem and reclaim the piece at large."
