"Two hours, thirty minutes, with two ten minute intermissions."
I don't have the time to say any of the two-dozen or so ideas running through my mind after seeing this show. But I must point out that every one of the names here identifies a theatrical artist who lives and works in the Boston area.
And this is the best experience I have had in the past five years of increasingly excellent productions I've seen all over Boston.
If it's not sold out already, it certainly should be; everyone connected with it deserves a big fat Gold Star.

Love,
===Anon.
