On New Year’s Eve 1969, Jimi Hendrix’s electronic blues trio, Band of Gypsys, played a legendarily funky concert at New York City’s Fillmore East. Twelve disciples have gathered in the upper balcony to bear witness, as heat is brought to a nation caught in mid-winter chill.
See it if You want to hear Hendrix's great music louder than your home stereo will allow.
Don't see it if You expect the view of the balcony crowd will add anything. They do not move to the music. Nothing they do is organic. It is cardboard.
See it if you really like Jimi Hendrix music and/or dance pieces. I'm not sure I understood it, but I enjoyed it.
Don't see it if You're expecting a play. There is no dialogue in this piece, just stylized movement as the performers "watch" a historical concert.
See it if you want a completely unique theater experience. Nothing you will see on or off broadway will compare.
Don't see it if you need dialogue or a story to follow. There is no speaking, there is no plot, and there is only one set. It is still magnificent.
