The play deals with a lot of issues of dysfunction and family relationships, Passionate acting. It is interesting to watch Jimmy Smits in a play versus being a TV or movie actor. This play has over the top profanity. So please keep that mind if...

I found this play offering so much on many levels. First, the performers had me completely lost in their characters. On a minor note, their articulation was impeccable so I was able to understand every word. Now since a lot of the "words" were...continued

This is a very earthy play featuring characters who are not a part of mainstream society. Although the language was very strong, I felt it fit well with the characters who were portrayed. I also thought that the play showed that even someone who...

A great evening at the Steppenwolf. Well-acted, memorable performances by the entire cast. The overall theme is rehabilitation - both criminal and substance abuse. Tough characters to like, but somehow the playwright makes you care about their...continued

I knew nothing about the story or even the author before I chose to see this show. I went strictly because Jimmy Smits is in it. This is such a powerful story told with only 5 characters. Excellent script, acting, directing, and fascinating set...continued

This was an excellent show. The writing was very quick and smart, and the actors did a great job of making their lines clear. The acting itself was excellent, with a special shout out to Julio. The play was funny as well as touching, with very...continued

The title will give you an idea of the language used throughout this play so if that bothers you this probably is not your show. I hope you'll get past that, tho, because this is great piece of theater. It's a gritty story of low-class reality...continued

Enjoyed the play, but there was too much foul language that took away from the main story. Yes the language was a bit shocking at first as designed, but it became too predictable and was used for fillers. I like the way the story line developed...continued

Fun seeing Jimmy Smitts, but the "cousin" was the highlight character for me. Enjoyable!
