What I liked

The acting was superb with each cast member empowering and deepening these familiar characters as they ventured into unknown territory together. The definition of an ensemble, no one character hogs the spotlight as they lift each other into a theatrical trance.

What I didn't like

The start was a little slow with the characters having to break out of their glass cages and near the end a small scene of physical theater went on a little long for my taste.

My overall impression

This play can be favorably compared to another theatrical masterpiece, Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. These characters are reimagined in a way that will never let you read Lolita, Ophelia, or Daisy in the same way; or any character written through male narration! I look forward to what these talented thespians can accomplish in the future.
