Enchanting (get it?), Relevant, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Intelligent

See it if You want a show that's surprisingly much more than it appears at first glance. Topical and current with a funnny believable storyline.

Don't see it if You can't use your imagination a bit. They do wonders with a couple of tables and chairs but this is not about the sets or costumes.

Ambitious, Disappointing, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Dizzying

See it if you enjoy a strong message through the eyes of high school female teenagers who speak their own language at a fast and loud pace.

Don't see it if screaming, hard to understand soft voices with competing background music and lots of quick action scene and light changes overtax you.

August 12th, 2017

“An uneasy and unsatisfying blend of humor and topical drama…It’s a stale rehash of scholastic antics, and the supernatural angle doesn’t add much. Amidst these inane trappings, a rape subplot feels like a tacked-on contrivance, making the play further irredeemable…Garvin seemingly wants to tackle serious social issues but her overloaded approach doesn’t cohere. The witchcraft lore is confounding and is perhaps an attempt at allegory…Very little of all this is funny or interesting.”
