The Royal Family presents this evening of original monologues performed by a rotating cast of accomplished actresses. More…
Created from stories from a group of anonymous women, 'Women On Fire: Stories from the Frontlines'
explores the "State of the United States" from different cultural, socioeconomic, and diverse perspectives. Complementing the all-female cast is a modern dance element choreographed by Lorna Ventura.
"Rarely–if ever– have I seen a cast of women this diverse who represent the entire swath of our country...I was pleasantly surprised by the scope and depth that the piece offers. It is more than just a #metoo play. It is more than just a feminist piece. It is more than just political. What it is is the product of a compassionate, rational human being who finally understands that we’re not serving ourselves as a society if we do not listen to one another." Full Review
See it if This is a MUST see for WOMEN and the men that want to understand and respect them.
Don't see it if you can’t walk 4 flights of stairs, (no elevator)however if you can make the 4 flights this is a must see I don’t care what you want or like
See it if You are interested in hearing a wide range of POVs of women today and want to see great acting and dancing in an unusual setting
Don't see it if You dont want to connect to what women are feeling and experiencing today
See it if You like one person monologue plays. Though there are 16 actors they each deliver a monologue that helps build a tapestry when completed.
Don't see it if You’re a misogynist. This is a stunning piece of work but it’s told from women’s point of view, which just seems like truth to me.
See it if A must see for women & other human beings; powerful performances, scathing relevant & honest from 20 amazing women of wide experience & age.
Don't see it if You’ve no interest in women—their treatment, issues or concerns; or think the state & tone of US & world politics towards them is just fine.

Don't see it if Don't enjoy monologues or can't deal with strong opinionated women voicing their views but maybe then you should see it!
See it if you like powerful women telling it like it is "at this moment" in time. The dance staging works with the individual monologues.
Don't see it if you are don't want to think about the mess our country is in on so very many levels. (and lots of stairs)
See it if you are interested in the #metoo/#timesup movements; these stories help clarify the existing problem; and the dancing is relevant. Go see!
Don't see it if climbing those many stairs is too difficult. As said previously, everyone else should see it. As women, we have experienced/heard similar.
See it if Individual performances by women of diff. ethnicities, age, etc. voicing view pts of the current political situation w powerfu modern dance.
Don't see it if Dont like monologs from diff women expressing their mostly angry but accurate view of the curr political situatio &Walk up 3flights of stair
See it if you feel enraged & impotent by the state of affairs in our country today; are concerned re.: the impact on women's lives from all viewpoints
Don't see it if You cannot tolerate angry & vocal women at odds with the system & each other, sounding off; cannot climb 3 flights of rickety stairs
See it if Women's stories and great performances move you. You experience accounts of the present political moment as cathartic collective experience

Don't see it if you are entrenched in 1 view, you want easy entertainment, you want less of a challenge or more fluff. This is thoughtful and provocative.
