About the Show

Clever, Great staging, Great acting

See it if A well acted play. Good direction and lighting. Not one of Williams best plays,however.

Don't see it if Beginning and end better than the middle where Williams writes the 2 character play. Off stage was entertaining the play part was sloooow

Southern gothic, Borderline absurd, Metatheatrical, Inventive

Don't see it if you’re hoping that this late Tennessee Williams play is a simple update of earlier work. Read more
