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."

Originally from Detroit (or at least a proximal suburb...), I've been living in anticipation from the second I saw this play advertised in the Chicago magazine that I pantintly perused while deepening my relationship with the StairMaster. The...continued

The acting was phenomenal! I was totally entertained and saddened at the same time by these pathetic personalities.
