What I liked

The staging was effective in not just building wonder, but keeping it there for the final moment. I enjoyed the choreography and all the physicality’s involved in the storytelling. Its seemless flow was an achievement in the collaborative process to writing the play. The music. I loved the music. It started the second the doors opened. You had but a moment to activate your suspension of disbeleife as you took your seat. I enjoyed every character! Heartbreaking and real. I also really enjoyed Dr. B’s wife character. Who ever thought up her just passing over the mic at the end every time it came around was brilliant and honest.

What I didn't like

His wife’s character to possibly be expanded on a bit. I believe Dr. B and her are the same, but different. I would love to see her mystery and presense match Dr. B’s.

My overall impression

Fantastic! A cooky story about a quack’s ride during the depression era America, chaperoned along by good ’ol American bluegrass music and southern hospitality. As any good doctor would say, take this show and call America in the morning!
