Review by DAN JOHNSON

My overall impression

An interesting production, but might ultimately be a victim of mismanaged expectations. While the case before the jury does in fact involve spanking, the play itself is not an exploration about that. It is much more a satirical look at the American Criminal Justice system as a whole, and the case presented to the jurors is interchangeable with any other case. The cast, as a whole, was strong, but the production failed to engage me.
