Banal, Confusing, Disappointing, Fluffy, Insipid

See it if If you want to see a play that was rewritten from it's original works.

Don't see it if If you want a clear show that is more linear, a musical. A better written play.

Don't see it if Something is missing. The actors seem to be missing something We could not feel for any of the 3 leads. Not a great depiction of BiPolarD...

“Starr expertly captures the agony of her character’s mental illness. She can be funny and fascinating...But within seconds, she can become rowdy, rude, and hard to take...Journigan is engaging and perfectly cast...In addition to dynamic performances...the play also features a very smart and often very funny script. ‘Forbidden’ could strongly benefit, however, from smoother flow between scenes; the delayed transition from setting to setting could easily become the play’s fatal flaw.”
