Very talented cast, incredible voices. Story gave real insights into what it must be like to be an immigrant who is caught up in issues of deportation while still trying to show up as a parent. A touching mother/daughter story. Promising new...continued

The venue was only half full on the rainy night we attended. The house manager upgraded all patrons. We paid for side mezzanine seats and were lucky enough to be seated in the center orchestra. Kudos to the Olney Theatre Center's house manager....continued

A timely story, well told and well performed. I had looked forward to the musical numbers but was disappointed that they really didn't contribute much to moving the story along.

I went into it having just read a blurb so I didn't know what to expect. It was amazing! The story was sweet, funny, and tragic. The actors and band performed beautifully, especially the actress who played Pearl and the guitarist. I may see it...continued

So well acted, staged, danced and sung. A delightful way to consider a truly difficult topic.

The music was terrific and excellent voices from the cast! Very modern set but worked well with talented performers and very interesting story, that is so timely for what is going on in our country now. Highly recommend this show.

The actors were competent. The dialogue was weak and the music was nebulous. Also, the theater was more than half empty and our seats were in the last row at the very end , not allowing full view of the stage.

Like In the Heights, this play tackles a real issue for folks that are not usually a topic for shows. It makes you see real people affected by immigration issues. Singing is excellent and show is well run. It is really good but not out of this...continued

Not a perfect play but the relationship between the mom and daughter and how it changed was quite moving and the lead is wonderful! Worth checking out.

The performers were wonderful, however, the story tried to cram to many current political topics into one show. Some of the songs lyrics were ridiculous. The overarching topic of a mother and daughter separated, and the mother facing deportation,...continued

Very powerful storyline with thought provoking themes of families separations, immigration and current political state. Grest acting, choreography and music. Kept you on the edge of the seat.
