Intense, Engaging, Intimate, Great acting, Great cast

See it if you like huge love drama in intimate (very effective) setting that puts you very close to the action yet w/o required interaction w/ cast.

Don't see it if you prefer a big venue/production. This is in a bar setting of less than 30 capacity which may be too close for comfort but a drink may help

They allow its complexity to soar. Without this cast and director, who ironed out the potential problems with characterization, the production would have been less memorable, less dynamic, less authentic.”
