#ChanceItLA – The script of this show is taken entirely rom the written work of poet Nazim Hikmet, and those words are at times beautiful and stirring. However, as no context or back story is provided, I was unable to fully engage or sympathize with Hikmet. Before this production I had never head the name Nazim Hikmet and therefore had no idea what ideals he fought for of even the climate and turbulence of his home country that he was up against. this show succeeds in painting the plight of this man, but fails to establish why the audience should be concerned for his plight. If you’re going to chance this one, do some research before going in.
