What I liked
All of the things I’ve already mentioned plus I appreciated the video/multi-media aspects of the show. They were an interesting and effective way to cover scene transitions.
What I didn't like
Because it was a shortened teaser for the full-length production, there were elements of the backstory missing leading to multiple questions about moments in the piece that seemed to come out of nowhere. This is to be expected and forgiven though, understanding that this isn’t the entire piece.
My overall impression
There was so much to enjoy about this piece. It had a gentle opening with a beautiful 3 part harmony piece sung by three “homeless” men. It set the mood and was lovely. The lead actor was energetic and fun to watch. He had great charisma and was very comfortable with every version of his multiple realities. The monologues were heartfelt and well written. And Lou Beatty Jr.’s performance was heartbreaking and sincere.
