About the Show

Anything but a typical coming out story, this new play is set in three different centuries, where three different men share a name and a pursuit of the truth - and what it means in their lives.

Romantic, Great acting, Great writing, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if You like multiple storylines that intertwine, each good on its own but ultimately come together to make one point. Great costumes. Funny.

Don't see it if You can’t follow different stories set in different points in time all taking place at the same time. Very well done but pay attention. Read more

Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Clever, Absorbing, Ambitious

See it if you like Venice, like a story encompassing 3 time periods from early Christians to Marco Polo to modern gays, enjoy a good story

Don't see it if you expect elaborate scenery, lighting & costumes, don't like gay subplots or religious characters, have no patience for pasted on beards

Resonant

See it if Show finally gets moving when the tourists get to the restaurant & we meet the gay waiter. It's a tender love story & other plots too.

Don't see it if The first 30 minutes are excruciatingly boring & amateurish, and should be cut. Start the show when the 2 ladies meet the waiter. 2hr20min.

Relevant, Intelligent, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You’re interested in relationships performed in a church which adds to the spiritual effects.

Don't see it if You’re looking for a simple play as 3 difficult stories are interwoven here and requires your attention.

Slow

See it if 4 plot lines of Marcus the prophet, Marco Polo, closeted Marc, and older woman all facing their fears to see the truth. Religious elements.

Don't see it if Not that gay! Lower budget community theater set and costumes, uneven acting. Plots don't quite merge together as profoundly as expected. Read more

Fluffy, Quirky, Disappointing, Ambitious, Banal

See it if Francesco Campari as Angelo gave a very convincing & believable performance with this messy direction. The play’s concept had real potential

Don't see it if Since the script was a bit disjointed with weak dialogue as well as, several actors who could not carry their roles. Directing was not good.

Quirky, Dizzying, Absorbing

See it if you want to see 3 storylines simultaneously...show goes on too long...

Don't see it if you want bog production values...sparse set and costumes...some actors better than others.
