Sincere, Ambitious, Great acting, Relevant

Ambitious, Confusing, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if you like the Folk Rock music of Lisa Bonner. This is a concert with biographical dialogue between songs; band members play the parts

Don't see it if you expect a play. The characters are thinly presented. The plot points are described more than shown. Songs don't always match situations.
