Great acting, Confusing, Disappointing, Quirky, Ambitious

See it if You like quirky, out of the box style shows. Lots of dream like sequences (too many for my taste) and metaphorical bits.

Don't see it if You want to see an easily understandable show or one that ends up making sense at all.

Great acting, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if had very good acting and excellent staging. They used the stage well. If they rework the last 20 minutes, this could be a good one.

Don't see it if The last 20 minutes hurt this show, it became not so much confusing as it got away from the main plot.

March 30th, 2018

"Burkhardt piles on academic inanities for one hour and 40 minutes in this leaden saga. The abrasive dialogue has the characters refer to themselves in the third person and comment on the actions...The play's LGBTQ sensibility is more of a concern than coherence. It all plays out as a self-conscious hollow spectacle, wasting the time of the audience and of the company of eager youthful actors...Heyman's staging gracefully keeps thing moving so that the production is at least watchable."

"One of the most exciting directors working today, Heyman creates theatre magic out of nothing...A difficult play to stage and enact...I felt myself playing catch up to the story that kept introducing more characters, variables, time periods and historical facts...But you'll remain entertained by an excellent cast and visual surprises and delights. Heyman has a penchant for difficult texts and you can trust her to take you on another wonderful journey."
