Relevant, Slow, Thought-provoking, Absorbing, Disappointing

See it if Schechter's noble bio-drama is heartfelt & Rabadi works hard at making Hannah three-dimensional but still feels like a "Profile in Courage"

Don't see it if Good intentions never make good drama Far too much time spend on Hannah's youth/kibbutz life; drama ignites w/her freedom fighting exploits

Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like historical, one-person shows, this one very well performed on a simple stage with a few props and some nice singing.

Don't see it if you do not like or are triggered by WWII treatment of Jews. There is also one, brief, violent stunning entrance of a second actor.

"'Hannah Senesh,' an emotional, inspiring yet totally non-sentimental biographical drama about a prescient and unbelievably valiant young woman whose enemies declared her the bravest person they'd ever met."
