Don't see it if Bad weather is forecast. There are limits to soaking up free theater, notably getting soaked.

"'Checks' is a forthright political story, a vibrant cartoon in the best sense, liberal and concerned about issues which have enveloped all of us...Nicely directed by Ms. Fields, with help from music by Joseph Vernon Banks...The music and acting are good, not great, but this is a celebration for the neighborhood to keep people thinking and focused on resistance, on logical forward motion for the betterment of the community."
