Don't see it if You want to see any talent on stage. Everything falls short: the acting, sets, lighting, script and costumes. Read more

Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if Some good acting esp Daryl Wyatt. A story that had to be told. Interesting info provided.. With some publicity the story can move on.

Don't see it if Some weak acting.. Theater not easy to find in the building. (Maybe we were too early for the posted signs?) The set can use more work.

Historically important topic, Poor writing, Disappointing

See it if you know nothing about the historic of African Americans serving in the armed forces in the twentieth century or the Buffalo Soldiers.

Don't see it if even in a workshop you need a well written show that you think can be rescued with some tweaking, rewriting and refinefinement. Read more

Exhausting, Ambitious, Slow

See it if There is an interesting and important premise in this show...the stories of soldiers of color have been underrepresented in American history

Don't see it if but this show wasn't the venue for it. While I appreciate the effort, this show wasn't well written or acted. But support artists of color!

Ambitious, Intense, Disappointing, Relevant, Intelligent

See it if See it if you enjoy supporting a theater group. There are a few actors who carry the show. They are all giving what they can

Don't see it if Don’t see it if a work in progress isn’t your thing. Not all the actors do that well in this production.
