Read the book. Skip the play. Galati is good at giving us some nice imagery, but the storytelling is frustratingly confusing, flat, and just plain boring. My girlfriend (who loves the book and was very disappointed with this adaptation) fell...continued

This is the second show I've seen Frank adapt from Murakami. I enjoyed after the quake more as a play than I enjoyed Kafka on the Shore. I didn't feel that Frank went far enough making it a surreal experience. Items cut from the book made it...continued

My husband and I had both read the book - not sure whether my opinion would change if either of us hadn't.... The story is very engaging and they really did a great job casting - the characters are just as I pictured them (including the cats!). ...continued
