Set in Germany as Hitler rises to power, 'Good' takes place partly inside the mind of a 'good' man: Professor John Halder. Unconsciously, this well-meaning scholar is slowly led into participating in the hell that was the Holocaust. Performed in repertory with 'No End of Blame.'
See it if you like historical drama. This one with an interesting twist. It scared me on a deep level to see how easily people rationalize their hate.
Don't see it if you're a Trump supporter. You will not like how your kind is portrayed. They get it spot on perfect.

See it if / The play succeeds in putting you in the shoes of someone whose life choices seem unfathomable. It sneaks up on you in a good way.

See it if Great acting, interesting&unique scene setup, war themes, plays w music, but not musicals, great costuming, deep thinking, profound plays
