PREVIEW:
The acting was SUPERB, the first scene was GREAT, but the second half was disappointing. Shela's character was "ALL OVER THE PLACE" (with more negative than positive), leaving the finale with questions to be answered. Since this being...continued

I believe the playwright is talented and the stories he tells are important, but this one felt unfinished to me. The first act is pretty strong. The second act relies heavily on one actor and the affinity you have (hopefully) gained for her...continued

Wonderful performances! Not a bad seat in the theatre. Slightly less than two hours with intermission which was good.

I thoroughly enjoyed the play. It seemed to get off to a slow start. But maybe after the first ten to 15 minutes it took off & there were a few surprises. Some of Shelah's speeches were a little lengthy and seemed slow the flow of the play. Love...continued

The actors read their lines too fast.And I could not hear much of the dialogue. And as far as the plot is concerned, I don't understand what happened. It was too vague. A little ambiguity goes a long way with me. I would not recommend this play....continued
