I recommend it highly.... full review

Inventive, affecting, indescribable show. I tried to explain this show to a friend last night—what it was like and why I found it so profoundly moving—but I could simply not pin it down long enough to from sentences around it. I'll try again. It's interactive storytelling, deceptively rough in presentation (actors had script in hand, simple props, folding chairs); with disjointed narration, fragments and soundscapes. It's a supremely talented, passionate, beautiful ensemble of people with terrific storytelling skills. It sneaks up on you, this show. It's slightly surreal: with the cast using the entire theater and enveloping the audience in their journey, with multiple languages being spoken (often at the same time) and with people bec... full review
