Better than expected

See it if you like mysteries & don't mind Equity & amateur performers sharing the stage (which brings down the general level of professionalism).

Don't see it if overly warm theater will make u feel like u r really in Mid East in summer; you'd like more of a set to distract from some clunky acting.

Also The ending isn't particularly rewarding for the audience since it seem... Read more Read less

73
Mediocre writing, Mostly good acting, Competently staged

See it if You live in Brooklyn and enjoy local theater. The actors for the most part were good, although there was some over-acting.

Don't see it if You are intolerant of mediocre writing. There is some repetitiveness to the recounting of back-story that could have been trimmed.

Enchanting, Classic agatha christie, Nice ensemble with some bright spots

See it if Death occurs during dysfunctional family vacation to the Middle East. Plenty of clues and red herrings. Brooklyn local theatre.
