What I liked

I enjoyed the show – especially the first piece. Allison Youngberg, Brian Wallace and Jon Gentry were tremendous! I appreciate the open endedness and ambiguity of the writing that tackled a very real and important issue. To top it all off Christina Cigala’s directing was great.

What I didn't like

I’m honestly not sure how I feel about the representative for the status quo/locals/original inhabitants of an area facing gentrification being a homeless black man, but my uncertainty about this does not diminish my opinion that the show is well done.

My overall impression

I can honestly say this is one of the best shows at I’ve seen at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.
