Resonant, Masterful, Great acting, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you are a fan of Rosalind Chao and BD Wong and a fan of STORYTELLING! This is a definite DON"T MISS!!!!!!!!

Don't see it if a two-handed play, without a set, and the actors standing on stage telling a story doesn't interest you. Read more

Great writing, Epic, Exquisite, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if you like plays that delve deep into family dynamics. See it if you are are a son or a daughter or just are alive.

Don't see it if you want bells and whistles. This is dialogue only play with no scene changes and very little set design. Read more

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if u are interested in a 2 hander about siblings whose parents are from the "old country" & grow up with very different outlooks on life

Don't see it if u don't like 2 handers; there are 2 casts so make certain you book 4 the night w/your preference; don't like short plays - this is 70 min. Read more

Human, Moving, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you want a moving piece of storytelling about siblings. Have your heart ready.

Don't see it if you aren't into two handed plays that are mostly monologues and aren't ready to see it as is.

Resonant, Intelligent, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you're a fan of Tony Shaloub, like immigrant stories, sibling stories, or stories of lives changing and arcing over the course of a lifetime

Don't see it if you're looking for a lush, fully art-directed production, or are not a fan of very wordy, two-person shows, or immigrant stories.

Intimate, Repetitive, Some great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if small intimate play about family and forgiveness. Both actors great, some beautiful monologues and dialogue. Thought provoking & touching.

Don't see it if while I really enjoyed her performance, I found Shoreh A. hard to hear/understand at times (from the front row). Read more

Great acting, Slow, Thought-provoking, Somewhat contrived, Ultimately touching

See it if interested in family drama told thru the eyes of 2 sibs, one born in "old country", one born here. Mostly a series of alternating monologues

Don't see it if don't care for 2 handers; want more interaction between the 2 characters; at times slow; very basic set design Read more

Shallow, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see some great acting and hear a charming story with an interesting and fresh perspective on immigration.

Don't see it if you expect a deep analysis of the characters or expect to see the characters interact. Show is a essentially a series of monlogues.
