Ambitious, Intense, Interesting

See it if You like poetry. You like seeing shows based on real experiences. You enjoy story-within-a-story shows.

Don't see it if You do not appreciate or have an interest in poetry in various forms or how poetry moves people.

Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant, Resonant, Delightful

See it if you like personal journeys that have political edges, and you love language plays that employ humor and fantastic writing to tell a story

Don't see it if you are not interested in ideas of compassion and an erasing of boundaries between our world and Muslims, the Middle East, the way we relate

Ambitious, Great acting, Quirky

See it if You enjoy experimental theater that emphasizes the ephemeral. You enjoy passionate performers and text that incorporates historical topics.

Don't see it if You prefer large ensembles. You don't find poetry, or the construction and history of poetry, interesting. You are turned off by time jumps.

"The play starts fast; it hooks you right from the start...The play is anchored by two charming performances from two strong actors...The problem with the production itself is that it’s two different plays in one that do not connect well together...The show is well put together; director Jen Wineman knows how to do theater. While the play may be a tale of two ideas mixing and not finding the right combination, the production aspects and performances more than make up for it."
