The acting was superb!!!! I loved the cast. It was edgy and it gives you a glimpse of how people trying to figure out their lives were afflicted by the Stone Wall violence. Highly recommend!

Excellent performance. My only criticism is that I wish the pre-show performance by the band wasn't so loud - - a lot of other attendees were wearing earplugs, so they must have been tipped off to that. I wish someone had alerted me in advance...continued
