Banal, Disappointing, Fluffy, Slow

See it if If you want a show that is both slow and weak in plot. Trying to deal with issues of the present.

Don't see it if If you want a show where the acting is consistent and a plot line that is consistent as well. If you like good staging.

Too much crammed in, Entertaining, Quirky, Slow, Relevant

See it if you want to see a thought provoking piece with a diverse cast dealing with issues of work, love and immigration with a good, but uneven cast

Don't see it if you want a polished play. This was first night but stage is too large, and story has too many pieces that do not fit well - editing needed.

Too long, Uneven acting, Slow, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a play that has potential but needs to be polished a bit. You want to have a couple of laughs. You want to be entertained.

Don't see it if You are only interested in fully polished performances. You can't sit through a play that is two hours long without an intermission. Read more

Missed opportunity to explore undocumented immigrant story, opts instead for leaden soap opera/novela banality., Banal, Slow, Indulgent, Cliched

See it if You're a big fan of soap opera/novella style over-the-top storytelling with very little artistic or intellectual content.

Don't see it if You're looking for penetrating insights on contemporary social problems examined in an intelligent way.

Resonant, Disappointing, Ambitious, Excruciating, Slow

See it if You haven't been to theater for a while & want to see something different & won't mind the slowpaced. There are some good moments,..

Don't see it if You don't care about a struggling love story of two immigrants with a bitter sweet ending. The overall performance lack of maturity & focus Read more
