Great acting, Relevant, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if Orlandersmith's gripping recreation of the Michael Brown slaying by the residents of Ferguson, Mo is must see drama/oral poetry Profound

Don't see it if The video recreation does capture the artist in close-up nuance but looses the in person chemistry of performance It's an eloquent trade-off

Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you'd enjoy a thoughtful piece where one actor brilliantly plays the characters speaking to an issue from many perspectives with projections

Don't see it if you are not open to listening to different takes on the same issue where exploring and learning make you think.
