Intense, Resonant, Absorbing, Long, Quirky

See it if history, especially 20th century German or LGBT history, interests you.

Don't see it if solo shows are not your thing. Read more

Great acting, Great staging, Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Resonant

See it if you want to see a great play, based on a true-life person, well acted by one person and nicely staged with good projections.

Don't see it if you do not enjoy sitting and listening intently for 90 minutes about the troubles and survival of a transvestite from the WWII era.
