Powerful, Beautiful, Funny, Moving, Delightful

See it if you see theater as a way to connect to people and stories, can revel in the beauty of words, will follow a passionate charismatic person.

Don't see it if bored watching people memorize. He teaches them in an entertaining manner, and provides meaning to it, but it does require repetition.

Delightful, Riveting, Profound, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if You love literature, quirky theater, seeing something different. A 90 minute exploration of memory, text, and so much more. Very moving

Don't see it if You only like traditional narrative theater. This is an original way in to one person’s story

"Literature is the great love of my life. And yet I’ve never liked memorization or recitation...the playwright and actor Tiago Rodrigues has changed my mind...After the show, as I waited for the subway, I read the poem aloud — once, then twice and again. The train pulled up, and I was so engrossed in the text, I nearly missed it. So give me some lines to memorize. I’m now a believer."
