Ambitious, Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Well-staged

See it if you'd like a powerful clash betw gay rights and Christian fundamentalist dogma. Sophisticated discussion is well-acted. Ending is far-out.

Don't see it if you're looking for lite entertainment. While absorbing and even occas'ly funny, ALEX is about the rise of theocracy and where that c lead us

Relevant, Resonant, Great writing, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see a show that feels like it’s written from tomorrow’s headlines. Darkly topical. Smart. Helps you see both sides fairly.

Don't see it if You don’t like to see outside your rose colored glasses. This feels very scary and very real and very much where we’re heading to me.

Great writing, Great acting, Intense, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if you want a fresh look at the times we are in reflected by a fine cast portraying five very different characters in a small town - wonderful!

Don't see it if you have no tolerance for difference of opinion or religion - these characters are struggling with issues, but know you are missing a gem.

Absorbing, Intelligent, Balanced, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if to see a sharply dramatized polemic on religious tolerance, cogently enacted by a Christian zealot, his lesbian friends & a wayward gay teen

Don't see it if you're obstinate in your own feelings about gay rights (esp gay marriage) & Christian Fundamentalism; you've had enough of dystopian drama.

Don't see it if consists of 2 many long-winded speeches; playwright puts thumb on scales and shifts tone thru unrealistic ending/see below Read more
