Director Lisa Peterson skillfully allows the moments of lighthearted banter between those characters to breathe while ramping up the intensity of their interactions at critical points in the story. All the while she brings a dynamism to the staging, so that scenes where people sit around in a bar talking never feel static... It's a world that many theatergoers have never experienced firsthand, so in that way, Nottage provides us the opportunity to feel empathy with those so far from us, both geographically and otherwise. - RECOMMENDED
