See it if You enjoy non-traditional storytelling, spoken word poetry, stepping, rap, singing and stories about minorities/people of color.
Don't see it if Alarms frighten you. You enjoy traditional theater. If you don't enjoy spoken word, this isn't the show for you, though thats the best part.
See it if You like social justice empowered theater. Multicultural art. Non-traditional theater. Hip-hop culture.
Don't see it if You can only listen to chamber music.
"Scenes are strangely paced and slow, with long silent pauses that do not serve the urgency of the circumstances. Director Jana Lynne Umipig seems to have missed an opportunity to create a real sense of tension, undercutting moments of emotional height with long, tentative exchanges…Few of the subjects get plumbed with real depth…There are many beautiful moments in 'Catalyst,' but it feels like they would be more poignant if the overall show were edited down."
