Admittedly rather heavy and gritty subject matter, this production deserves 5 stars for its flawless acting, singing, acoustics and staging. Less entertaining than... continued

I disliked this play. it is hard to understand them when they are all singing at once different scores. also, the topic is depressing to deal with. i like to be entertained when i go to the theater.
