Clever, Intelligent, Original, Relevant, Resonant

See it if you like real life story telling; you like dance, movement mixed in with a play; you like a good vs evil story; like history;

Don't see it if you aren't interested in either of the two characters - robert moses and joseph papp.

Entertaining, Original, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if You're interested in history, the 2 main figures and New York. You like projects with purpose. The movement and dance was good.

Don't see it if You're looking for the lighter, flashier play or musical. You're not willing to put up with minimalist production values.

Act Three - The Reviews
April 1st, 2016

"The very clever point, which could have been made even more dramatic in the play, is that these two gentleman, despite their massive battles, never actually met...Both actors held court in this 60-plus-minute, historically relevant and culturally interesting piece...I could really see this play being expanded slightly and brought onto an off-Broadway stage for a slightly more robust performance with more projections/slides and a moderately expanded story filling in some of the gaps."
