It's a play packed full of drama and human emotion. (not for the light-hearted). but the acting is superb and the theme is poignant and relevant. Attend this if you want to be touched and get a view inside the family dramas brought on by...continued

This is still a work in progress. Individual fine (if not outstanding) performances. I need the show to be believable - and as the author mentions in the liner notes.. he is striving for that too. You'll need to decide how much you can believe.

The jazz was great, the acting was convincing. The tragedy of Katrina & its impact on survivors compounding problems they might have already had was stressed.

Very creative production of an American tragedy in the deep south presented with blues music and modeled after a Greek tragedy ( Agamemnon + Clytemnestra ). Hurricane Katrina and its related floods will be difficult for our generation to capture...continued

I found it very slow moving and had difficulty understanding the dialogue
at times. I thought there would be more music.

I really enjoyed the set, the narrator was fantastic, the live music was an unexpected fantastic surprise. The acting was superb and the play itself brought out so many emotions. I went from tears to sitting on the edge of my seat wondering what...continued

Excellent production - compelling drama with complex theme. Music and creative staging add to effect of the play. Mature theme based on Greek story of Agamemon.

Quality of acting, the set design, and themes were of interest and well done. The timing was impeccable. I LOVED the music. At times I had difficulty hearing speech articulation with some of the male cast members. Certainly it was a gloomier...continued

We enjoyed it very much although the first half of the play seem to move slower than the second half. I think the we had a better understanding of the characters after the first half.

What started off as a good play in the first few minutes went downhill pretty quickly. Unfortunately the characters were too predictable, the story line turned more than bizarre ...
