"What I liked I like the minimal use of props and lighting, there was a point when all lights went out and the only glimpse of sunlight came through inside the theater and it was amazing and spiritual. What I didn't like Many times that the actor stayed on the floor was hard for me sitting in the back of the theater. Also I couldn’t help but wonder whether that sword was real and whether the front row felt safe or not. I was truly concerned for their safety. My overall impression I just stumble upon this show while waiting for another show at the same theater but I’m impressed by the performance of this samurai story and the guttural sounds he made as he swayed his sword mere inches from the audience."
