What I liked

Lindsay Beamish and Vanessa Peters were brilliant as a team—such a natural and spontaneous relationship…fascinating and excellent!!!! Their use of the very small stage was so cleverly and creatively blocked and choreographed—the illusion was of an “institute” with rooms and hallways and so much space!
I loved discovering their story-so uniquely and intelligently paced. The music was excellent.

What I didn't like

This is a production that is only going to get better and better with each performance.

My overall impression

What an intriguing, intelligently written, produced and performed show! It was mesmerizing as it unfolded—sad, touching, with genuinely funny moments.
