Before the play I wasn't sure what it could be about, Bengal tigers and the Baghdad Zoo? After the play, I'm still not sure what it was about. Anti-War? Greed? Racism? Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed the play, when viewed as a series of skits...continued

Loved the play - unique, weird and compelling. Good sound and direction. Excellent acting by most of the cast.

I enjoyed the production, but not sure I totally understood what message it was trying to convey. The performances were good, and of course, the horrors of war were apparent, but I couldn't get immersed in the story.
The theater is a joy, all...continued

very well acted, good staging, but tighter direction and some editing of the script would improve the play. it's a rather large stage viewed by an intimate audience so if you're seated to the side, as we were, you can feel left out as the action...continued

This play gives us a lot to think about: The contagion of violence during war - to the American soldiers, Iraqi civilians, even animals in the zoo; the existential question of why we are here. A very professional production.

Every bit as good as the version I saw in L.A. a few years ago.

Very thought provoking script.

Everybody, do yourself a favor and go see everything and anything that Craig Marker or Gabriel Marin is in (or, in this case, two for the price of one!). Also very strong performances from Kuros Charney (a sweet and troubled Iraqi interpreter)...continued

I thought that the acting was great. It was very moving because of the subject matter. I would recommend going to see it while it's still being performed.

The play grows on you -- interesting circular structure and plenty of themes to contemplate. Give it time for the themes and questions to emerge. What ghosts haunt you? What good are the material things of life, your cravings and desires, when...continued

The play is intense, disturbing, painful even - like humans, like war. The acting is strong and the time absolutely flew by. And you know time flys.... They have a full bar for before and during.

Odd but interesting story but I was annoyed by the loud overacting actors who played the soldiers. They need to bring it down about 10-fold in speaking their lines as it sounded unnatural. There were countless swear words and very crude sexual...continued

A provacative and interesting, if somewhat flawed, script. Excellent acting all artound, but one of the main characters (Tom, the older but not wiser Marine) doesn't much change or grow, and I found it hard to connect with him or sympathize. The...continued
