What I liked

I loved the focus on women beat poets who are so often overlooked in favor of their male colleagues. Roxy Seven as Joyce Glassman is heart breaking, Brady Richards as Jack Kerouac blazes bright, and Matt Curtin, Charles Platt, Dennis Woullard, and Scottie Nevill turn in stunning, funny performances as well!

What I didn't like

The show runs a bit long and could stand to be edited and streamlined, I would love to see this show continue to be workshopped and fine tuned!

My overall impression

A fresh and inspiring new musical with an incredibly talented cast and band that focuses on an under-explored era in American literary history!
