Absolutely did NOT enjoy it. Aside from the script being weird, the performers (including the young lady who preceded the performance) spoke too fast and frequently unintelligibly. We and many others elected to leave at intermission.

Quotes & Highlights

“Jason Grote is one of a generation of brainy new American dramatists — including Tracy Letts and Will Eno — who understand that to reach new audiences, political theater needs to move beyond moral indignation and outrage, past spoon-feeding an attitude.” —LA Weekly
