'Blind Spot' tells the story of Ramón García, who hopes a stint in the armed forces and citizenship papers will help him build a better future. He never saw an unexpected turn coming from a blind spot that would transform his life into a bitter awakening. Performed in Spanish with English subtitles via Simultext® In-Seat Captioning System by request at matinee performances.
"A poignant depiction of how strongly the military and immigration are in fact linked—and the bleak outcomes that many immigrant service men and women are forced to confront...The play might not leave you feeling warm and fuzzy, but it will leave you with a crucial and thought-provoking message that needs to be heard...Don’t miss it—its message is something that we can’t afford to stay blind to." Full Review
See it if You enjoy drama and immigration topics, psychological pieces that analyze uncomfortable war topics, and good acting.
Don't see it if You don't like dramas or plays with subtitles.
See it if Confronts issues of immigrants trying to assimilate. Where should loyalty and identity be sought? Powerful and well acted.
Don't see it if Torture scenes are disturbing. Small screen on back of seat in front of you has English subtitles.
See it if you like an interesting, hard-hitting, well-done drama that is very relevant to the situation of many immigrants in the United States.
Don't see it if you can't handle seeing a prisoner of war being beaten, don't like being left with some unanswered questions, or just don't like dramas.
Also Very effective staging in a small space.
See it if you want to see different POVs about the immigrant experience - parents vs. children in an interesting setting (the war)
Don't see it if war, violence, POW, torture make you uncomfortable.
See it if relevant, thought provoking, and completely engrossing.Great acting,great writing..this story will stay with you after you leave the theater
Don't see it if ....I can not think of any reason not to see this play.See it!
See it if intense REAL drama gets you fired-up. Haven't seen such EXCELLENT ensemble acting in a small one-act play in AGES. Very real & very intense.
Don't see it if you can't handle the truth. I bitch A LOT about disliking no-intermissions but these 75min of HEAVY emotions will stay with you for a while.
See it if you understand at least some Spanish (there are subtitles), you like good writing about a topic relating to military service & citizenship
Don't see it if you don't understand any Spanish, you don't like plays that deal with the military, torture, or war.
See it if your looking for an intense family drama or a piece on the military.
Don't see it if you can't handle torture scenes or dislike reading subtitles (if you don't speak Spanish).
Also It loses something in translation but still a great production.
See it if you appreciate powerful psychological drama featuring tension between generations of non-documented immigrant families and military at war
Don't see it if (1)not fluent in Spanish,(2)incomplete, slow, unsychronized, unnuanced subtitles frustrate,(3)cannot sit 90 min. no interval,(4)violence bad
See it if you would like to know what the government does to immigrants..how hard it is to struggle as an immigrant...
Don't see it if if you cannot face the truth of what happens in our world..
