Too long, Hit-or-miss, Interesting for awhile

See it if You enjoy immersive, improv work that depends heavily on audience participation to advance its story. Some of it works. Just long/repetitive

Don't see it if Hate this kind of show. Relying on skill of AUDIENCE members would make you cranky. You're claustrophobic, easily bored. Read more

"A true time-travel experience. Every last actor is completely in character from the second their guests arrived to the second they leave...It is a clever game of chance, giving Mary the trial she never received in real life, several times over...This theatre company gives her back her humanity and the compassion she did not receive from her fellow New Yorkers while still alive, and it is a truly beautiful thing. Bravo!"

“The likable ensemble embraces the interactive format of the show, with each character improvising a good deal of their own dialogue...One strange and somewhat distracting choice, however, is the incorporation of audience cue cards...If there is more complexity behind Mallon’s choices or her unfair treatment by authorities, the production should frame that conflict more clearly...All in all, however, an enjoyable and unique way to spend a Saturday afternoon in NYC.”
