Review On The Woman Who Went to Space as a Man


Ellen Dostal - Musicals in LA

Registered Critic


Though the sum of its parts does not yet add up dramatically, The Woman Who Went to Space as a Man does fit somewhat more effectively in the landscape of a theatrical tone poem. There the freer style of its content allows more room for the playwright to explore Sheldon's fascinating life journey and tragic end without limits.
