But what did you think about your show, Kevin?   This gorgeous fever dream meditation about modern US warfare and what we ask of our soldiers was brought to vivid life by our ridiculously great cast and design team. The low-ceiling blackbox at 16th Street has never felt so expansive. Heartbreakingly intimate, funny and messy moments between family and friends in the face of Greek-level tragedy. Gorgeous language, and these actors made it sing. The visual and sonic world of the play were f-ing awesome. They enveloped us, they transported us, they immersed us. -KCF
