What I liked

This show and cast are a must see highlight of LA Fringe this year. The show is physically and emotionally dynamic and tells a wild historical story that I can’t believe I’ve never heard of before. They use the space and their bodies with grace and athleticism that keeps the story speeding up like a locomotive- so quick and delightful that you hardly notice that you are getting emotionally swept away until the end. I would see it again if I could and would like to repeat the sentiment that this could easily be a full length play and I would be clamoring to see it.

What I didn't like

I’m usually wary of break-the-fourth-wall moves because they can be unnecessary, but this cast is so freaking charming that it was really effective. I guess that’s not something I didn’t like but I was trying hard to be critical.

My overall impression

yes. go. so worth your 50 minutes. I mean, sheesh, its only 50 minutes and it feel like 5 minutes. so good.
