Entertaining, Relevant, Ambitious, Absorbing, Intriguing

See it if You don’t mind a low budget but cleverly written show. Imagine if MSNBC and FoxNews birthed a political suspense show-thats what this is.

Don't see it if You can’t roll with some very low budget sets and some less than Tony worthy performances. The story is solid and the ambition is strong. Read more

Quirky, Quite a bit for a small stage, Relevant, Slow, Ambitious

See it if you'd enjoy a futuristic look at the political circumstances we are dealing with at this time. A dozen actors work hard in multiple roles.

Don't see it if you want a smooth polished production-here the actors are also the stage hands with many simple set changes.

Interesting theme, Repetitive, Annoying direction, Overly long, Amateurish

See it if you are interested in the threat of religious extremism in the US, dangerous political movements and can tolerate weak direction and sets.

Don't see it if you expect "polished" productions and dislike thematic repetition, silly plot details & amateurish direction.

Edgy, Disappointing, Profound, Ambitious

See it if You enjoy sci-fi on stage.

Don't see it if You want to experience a weak script, staging or directing with a lack of creativity.

Ambitious, Relevant, Too long, Disappointing

See it if you want to see a play about a young man's rise to political power.

Don't see it if you want to see a play that has a well written script, not one that needs editing.

Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if If you like plays with a vast cast

Don't see it if You don't like political plays

Disappointing, Intense, Slow, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you want to support a group of energetic actors and support staff who give it their all and you don't mind having a lot questions unanswered

Don't see it if you only support fully polished theater

82
Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant

See it if If you are open to looking at our current state of affairs and what could happen.

Don't see it if If you have no interest in looking at our current political situation and how power can take over our lives for ever...
