About the Show

Part murder mystery, part spiritual quest, this freewheeling distillation of Dostoevsky's 19th century classic, mapped onto a modern American story, asks the question of how to be a good person in today's world.

Interesting acting/choreography, Outside the box staging, Ambitious, Disappointing, Slow

See it if You like unique, outside the box shows. Part play/dance/film this show attempts to keep a foot in all mediums. Good acting/costumes/lights.

Don't see it if You want a coherent storyline. This is muddled from the beginning. Not only muddled bud bogged down with superfluous dance and film. Read more

Quirky, Slow, Great staging, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if Brenner's puzzling, idiosyncratic DIY adapt of iconic Russian novel works fairly well despite choppy structure; Russian pessimism pervasive

Don't see it if Can feel like a Clift Notes version of the epic work w/o a passing knowledge (but then how could it not) Russian folk movement may distract
