Since I saw the second to last performance of this production, this review helps no one but I felt compelled to leave a big shout out for a superb cast. Intense, hard drama with really complex dialogue. So heart-breakingly good.

It was outstanding, actors were incredible, and it was very thought-provoking. I was not expecting the brief male nudity, but it was acceptable given the character and the plot.

I loved it!
Very intense at times but also very funny and touching.
