Relevant, Thought-provoking, Slow, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy period pieces that reflect on enourmous human tragedy and suffering. Slow start and long narratives caused a rushed ending.

Don't see it if You need an intermission and the persistence of happiness. The set was limited but still caused unnecessary delays during changes.

Maddening uneven acting, uneven writing but ultimately good

See it if you are interested in a highly personal view of WWII Germany vis a vis Jews as seen through the eyes of a small resistance cell.

Don't see it if you are sensitive to the Holocaust, if you are unable to separate out acting from story. Unable to watch violence against women. Many left.

Profound, Resonant, Slow

See it if you like-history-historical fiction-dramas with a World War II/Holocaust backdrop-somber plays-tragedies-great background orchestral scores

Don't see it if you don't like-melodramatic performances-want an elaborate set design-or if you want-live music-three dimensional characters

Indulgent, Heavy-handed

See it if you find value in a piece if the story concept itself has potential.

Don't see it if any of this: eclectic, inconsistent accents, self-indulgent and sometimes self-important writing, predictability. Needs a solid workshop.

Intense, Poignant, Excruciating, Slow, Dated

See it if You like intense, disturbing, true stories about the holocaust. An emotional rollercoaster ride in a community theatre setting.

Don't see it if You are not a fan of difficult topics, bare setting and depressing endings.

Resonant, Cliched, Slow, Disappointing, Intense

See it if You like intense portrayals of resistance and righteous Germans during WWII and don't mind less than stellar local theater - women are good

Don't see it if You are looking for a fully staged large scale professional production and a script on the level of Miller's incident at Vichy for example

Cliched, Slow, Disappointing

See it if You like 1940s film noir. WWII drama.

Don't see it if You want a focused script that doesn't preach cliches.
