Absorbing, Great acting, Relevant, Resonant

See it if If you like plays that relate to true historical events and show strong female characters. Understanding Spanish is a plus.

Don't see it if If you would not be able to follow the Spanish dislogue and would find reading the English translation distracting.

Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Hilarious, Intense

See it if You enjoy history, family sagas, stories about revolution. Things go fast to cover the span, but the show handles that admirably.

Don't see it if Some of the jokes are lost if you don't understand Spanish- the translations do not do the actors justice

Great acting, Great staging, Profound, Relevant

See it if you would like to know about the relevant story of two prominent Dominican women that changed the way education was imparted for females.

Don't see it if you only want to be entertained, although there are many moments of funny comedy.

“Explores the Dominican Republic’s sometimes overlooked, yet most influential founding mothers...It’s the women who really make their mark in this play...Alvarez is a true literary historian through her writing, tying the Dominican Republic’s past to the present...Plenty of humor, sassiness, and tender moments for you to enjoy...If there’s anything that we can learn from Alvarez and the women in this play, it’s that the past, and not just the future, is female.”
