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.

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!

Disappointing, Cliched, Excruciating, Slow, Absorbing
