What I liked

That the play is about something real and important. Rock.

What I didn't like

.

My overall impression

I’m really glad folks are swinging at big issues these days. Freedom of speech, handling differing points of view, private vs. public, etc. I thought Naomi Brodkin did a good job of creating full characters that aren’t just stage mouths reciting agenda points (a pitfall of this genre of story, I think). Because of this, when the consequences start falling into place, you feel the effect.

The Fools’ main stage is BIG and this cast fills the space well. And this felt like a situation that could be happening right now in this country. The spirit of youthful optimism and the willingness to stand up for what you believe in that drives the play feels authentic. The central ideas are really “of our time.” I hope this crew comes back next year with some more of this.
