  1. Amazing, devastating play, one of the strongest experiences I have had in a Thaatre in the last years. Do not miss.

  2. i completely disagree. It was the most painful experience of my life. incredibly boring and had no emotion. complete waist of time and the acting was awful. Disapointing and does not caputure the true event of the history. the singing was too much in every scene and the subtitles were barely readable. Don’t go!
