How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Overall, we enjoyed the play, the concept of disappearing back into the 50's. So much theater seems to be making this over the top statement about gays...this one was no exception. Rather than a tender scene between two guys they over did the scene with simulated sex and lots of overt homosexual references...this isn't a homophobic rant...I think we are beyond needing the "in your face" gay statements...I can't believe the gay community is any more comfortable with this than I. Tone it down, make it feel more loving and you have something. The purpose of the play was to get you thinking about our society...it was absolutely successful on that count...we discussed it the entire way home. Particularly enjoyed Ryu's role
