Confusing, Dated, Indulgent

See it if you are a fan of Genet and like intimate settings. Some good performances.

Don't see it if translation is dated. Main actors so disparate in style–don't mesh. Nelson plays as a cuckold straight guy. Hard to see a maid in there.

Dated, Strange, Slow, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You like small strange intimate shows. Staging is somewhat immersive which I enjoyed.

Don't see it if Show is short but parts seem to go on forever due to 'talky' scenes with not a lot of action. No AC, which makes the setting uncomfortable.

"With a show that deals heavily in facades and power plays, putting two white men in the service of a trans woman of color has the potential to bring modern politics into a classic tale...And while Outliers’ production isn’t as groundbreaking as I’d hoped, it’s still a strong show...When Claire and Solange are left to their own devices, the dramatic tension is all in the text but lacking in performance. Parts felt like a really great scene study class, but I hoped for more."
