Confusing, Great staging, Clever, Edgy, Entertaining

See it if an interesting, off-beat meeting of these historical characters in a period parlor, played by good actors, with good lighting is your thing.

Don't see it if you are not familiar with the characters or you would be bothered by missing words as actors face different directions over the low hum a/c

Quirky, Confusing, Great acting, Funny, Absorbing

See it if you like out of the norm theater experiences. The actors in this production is what makes it so interesting.

Don't see it if you like standard fare. This is certainly not that.
