The play's Our Town structure is strongest in the beginning. It soon turns into a story about the Holocaust and the proposed Nazi march in Skokie, Illinois in 1977. While an interreligious teenage romance is also centraal, the 1977 conflicts re intermarriage are not developed.
The acting, as is generally the case at Theater J, is excellent. However, the play needs major rewrites to deal with chronological confusion and historical inaccuracies.
Still, the evening was quite entertaining, tghe reason for the four star review.
