How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
August Wilson can be relied upon to provide moving and thought provoking theatre and this production is an example of that. There are monologues from some of the characters that by themselves are almost worth the ticket price. Also, I love the fact that the dialogue is so true and authentic sometimes its like hearing my relatives speak. But I will not pretend to understand every nuance of the piece, or the motivation and behavior of every character. As an audience sometimes we have come to expect the tidy, everything is explained ending. It feels good to be both challenged and entertained.
