Don't see it if You don’t like shows that take a bit of a quirky approach.
See it if Seemingly trivial politics in a small town become tragic. Speaks to our wider troubles as a nation. Excellent characters.
Don't see it if You want a fancier production. You don't enjoy satire. You are not interested in how things can go bad for normal but flawed people.
“As for the second act, Stevens strains for a profundity that he's not prepared to deliver, and Coté seems a little lost as he struggles to help the actors find it, too. Only Alex Dmitriev, as a befuddled councilman whom the mayor tries to make her patsy by entrapping him with his own decency, understands the notes Stevens wants to play. Perhaps because he's the only one not trying to bring a caricature to life.”
"Playwright Leegrid Stevens interviewed actual people in Mesquite, NV. The dialogue is lengthy, with layers of understanding within each scene. If it was a 'real-ness' he was searching for, he has succeeded. Director Thomas Coté makes moments of realization honest and clear. He also keeps the production clipping along at a great pace. Though it was 'showy,' in a traditional musical theater way, the plays never loses its truth."
