Started a bit slow, but picked up at the end.
Not Steppenwolf’s best, but a nice night out.

DETROIT WAS ENJOYABLE!! IT HAD YOU LAUGHING,THINKING AND SHAKING YOUR HEAD. THE BOTTOM LINE "BEWARE OF ZEROES, THEY PREY ON THE ONES WHO ARE WEAK AND/OR GULLIBLE."
IT'S DEFINITELY WORTH SEEING.

It was one of the worst pieces of theatre I have seen in many years. It was vintage Laurie Metcalf, tired of it. Acting as usual was very good, but the play was worthless. Glad I got the tickets on goldstar.
