See it if Strong ensemble cast (3 men, 2 women). Well-chosen projections for social context. Music well-integrated. Transformed space. Ran about 2 hrs
Don't see it if you want strong story telling. Simple plot: Josh Gibson wants to be a major-leaguer. Not a rich portrayal; gets repetitive. Slow pace.
See it if 4 character bio about Josh Gibson’s stymied ambition to break into MLB. Live scenes, slide shows, and singer/guitarist. Informative.
Don't see it if This vanilla bio might be better done as a 60-min TV show. The live drama scenes were colorful but not gripping. Some fun improv w audience.
"A baseball story through and through, with draw and delight for fans of theater, fans of history, and baseball fans more used to taking a seat in a stadium than a theater...A live multimedia event...Expertly told by four actors who give us clearly drawn characters. Their performances can only be called excellent...It is a compliment to Jones’ writing and the performance as it plays that the characters all have a moment...Josh Gibson deserved to play on a larger stage. So does this play."
