How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I hate the production. It is disrespectful to the memory and the ordeal gone through buy the men and their families. In my opinion it was degrading to African-Americans. The format could have been presented in a number of different ways for the performance to still evoke emotion in the audience. I believe the originators wanted to take poetic license too far and they did. It was all I could do not to walk out like some others did. I felt very bad for the actors who decided to perform the way they did. I have told at least 12 people NOT to go see it. I hope it fails financially!
