Disappointing, Thought-provoking, Slow, Relevant, Well acted

See it if Erin Cronican does a great job bringing Rachel to life esp in her stirring idealism but she doesn't become gripping until mid-east sojourn

Don't see it if Journal edit by Viner/Rickman is clunky & dramatically dull esp in Rachel's childhood Direction is lackluster often leaving actress in limbo

Rudimentary, Affecting, Sad, Humanitarian, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to experience one of those instances where political activism exacts the ultimate toll.

Don't see it if solo shows based on historical material can no longer capture your attention. Read more

"Corrie’s words, drawn from her journals and emails and edited by Katherine Viner and Alan Rickman, are divine. Erin Cronican is wonderful as Rachel; funny, self effacing, observant, meticulous, flawed and confused. A production of Rachel’s story, in her own words, is so strong and solid that it does not need the theatrical staging of this production. Trust that an actor on stage with the presence and talent of Ms. Cronican is sufficient."
