Intense, Slow, Disappointing

See it if The Rosens are in tumult when gathered for life support:Two members ailing, daughters resenting, and father sexually and physically abusing.

Don't see it if How did they all even make it to Act II? Better writing and acting would support the weight of all these dysfunctions packed together.(2hrs) Read more

Resonant, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Great cast (Mom has been on Broadway before). Poignant tale of son stricken w/cancer in hospital bed. Family dynamics. Remember good times.

Don't see it if You don't like sad stories. You don't like feeling emotions. You don't like well-acted dramas (2 hours 15 min).

Profound, Great acting, Absorbing, Intense

See it if 5 members of a Jewish family show their vulnerabilities while visiting a sick son/bro@a hosp ward. All cast is talented esp J.Merino/father.

Don't see it if The story is very intense. If you are familiar with the play 'Dust', you will appreciate 'To Life' BUT preferably do not see them close Read more
