See it if Like small theatre, LGBT themes, interracial dating, sarcasm, humor, artists, family drama, half-naked men. There are 2 acts: act 1 was 💯
Don't see it if Hate all of the above and theatres with no mics (some of the dialogue was lost on stage, especially with the AC running)
See it if you enjoy character-driven dramas that feature strong performances by a well-rounded, talented cast.
Don't see it if you hate food on stage or require creative scene transitions.
“Artfully tackles questions about sexuality, politics, and racism. The dialogue mostly rings true, so it's hard not to feel emotionally involved...But the play doesn't take itself too seriously, and humor breaks up the mood...The early conflicts in act one build steam and create momentum, part of which is lost in act two, where a tricky plot twist and some heavy-handed ideas change the tone...An entertaining play where a number of characters struggle to love more than they are accustomed to.”
"Though he drops the occasional forced plot point, Jones has a strong foundation. The characters are engaging. The story is relatable... Jones has some fluff that can be eliminated…Bringing this play to life, director Mia Crivello found some brilliance within...Overall, Crivello needed to amp up the pacing…'The Marks You Leave' is a great story. Tyler Andrew Jones has crafted a play worth telling. Over time and revisions, 'The Marks You Leave' can reach the next level."
