Honestly, it was one of my favorite things of the year. It's talky, but presented in a fascinating staging (at least it was at the Armory), with an excellent cast. Maybe not the story you thought you needed to learn about, but I found it compelling. It did get mixed reports, but it depends on what you like - if you like lively musicals, this is at the other end of the spectrum. If you like plays and a historical story, this is one of the best.
