Dizzying, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if A well written play that is emotional and funny. Recommend this one.

Don't see it if Fast paced dialogue and subtitles make it difficult at times.

Intense

See it if 2-person play slowly reveals the impact of a mass shooting at a gay club on their lives. 1.5 hours; no intermission.

Don't see it if Mass shootings, gay / homophobia. Unreliable English subtitles: stops esp. during more dialogue-heavy scenes. Read more

In spanish (with unreliable closed caption device), Nice performances, Coming out-centerd two-hander, Intimate, narrow theatre, Melodrama

See it if Like melodrama and/or stories about moms and a son's coming out. Understand Spanish or are patient with unreliable closed caption units.

Don't see it if Don't like references to gun violence, family conflict, or lgbtq issues. Can't do closed caption that's slow and unreliable. Read more

Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Intense, Absorbing

See it if A heartfelt yet humorous play that explores how loss can separate&@ same time, unite people. Inspired by the 2016 Orlando homo attack, it's*

Don't see it if U don't think the videos portraying the terrorist attack are necessary here. Read more

Intense, Dramatic, Topical, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if you'd like a very talky, intense 2-hander that includes a scenario drawn from a recent horrendous headline vs. human failings

Don't see it if you can't follow rapid-fire Spanish dialogue or are adverse to the distracting small device offered for English translation Read more

Earnest, Resonant, Slow, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if The political butts the personal in Clua's intense meeting of a dead man's mother & his partner & the layers of grief & remorse they inhabit

Don't see it if The language can get a little purple & the drama's somewhat a polemic but the intent is always heartfelt & both actors reign in its excesses
