The story is superb. It made a great impact and left a lasting impression. I will try to see it again. The cast received a standing ovation.

This is such a moving, riveting and wonderfully acted performance. This show is a must-see. I don't want to give away anything about the show, but it's about women in the Congo. I can't think of when I have been so moved by a performance, where...continued

Fabulous show! Great writing, acting and directing. Beautiful venue.
Parking was expensive, had to pay coins in meters and you only get 8 minutes for each quarter.

Fantastic play about a terrible subject. The acting was terrific; music, singing, dancing were uplifting despite the topic; and the pace of the play was excellent. Both my husband and I enjoyed it, and thought the cast was top notch.

It's difficult to say you "like" something that is so difficult to watch because of its subject matter. That said the performances were quite good. Because of the nature of the theater setting it was occasionally difficult to hear the dialogue.

One of the best. Phenomenal acting, powerful storyline and despite the gravity of the subject matter one walks away admiring the resilience.

The performances were brilliant--there were at least three amazing monologues from the cast--which is particular challenging in the round. Of course, the new theater is also beautiful, all in all it was a great experience.

The play was superbly performed and the same could be said for all the design elements. It was probably very smartly conceived for the Western audiences that will see it - the "Mother Courage" connection works well. But I wish it wasn't played at...continued

This is one of the best productions I have EVER seen performed at Arena Stage! The staging was perfect. I always enjoy when theater in the round is done properly. It gives the best feeling of "being there." All of the performances were...continued
