"In keeping the audience on edge throughout, the perpetuating aspect of violence as a theme is depicted splendidly by the actors. It is the mark of great acting when the audience is rendered sympathetic even to those behaving wayward, aggressive, and threatening. In addition, Black emphasizes this theme of violence with reference to contemporary events, such as the shootings that took place in Sandy Hook in 2012, and Las Vegas in 2017. The question is posed: When will this end?"

"Flawlessly directed, interactive, with stellar dancing (particularly from Landieri, who pops-and-locks in homage to Michael Jackson at all the right moments in this 90-minute nonstop ride), the ingenuity of the script and synergy from the cast is compelling. The props and set by Hemley and Colon, respectively, are well-done, particularly when the cast creates the apartment where Chevonn and her mother live. This is a play that will stay with you for the rest of your life."
