Passionate piece cries out on behalf of immigrants
Most people think of theater as being for the benefit of an audience. But, truth be told, a healthy slice of the art is principally for the benefit of the participants and those who love them. This is especially true of drama involving young performers who learn about ensemble, creativity, craft and leadership as their family and friends watch from the seats. We critics tend to shy away from those events; the main criteria in play are something other than the proficiency of the work or its benefits to a stranger.
