Avis de l'équipe
All the rhythms and immediacy of a live stage production come through in this intense, intelligent, and fast-paced drama. A young Latino finds himself on death row at Riker's Island after a prank accidentally leads to homicide. Joe Quintero is outstanding as he portrays the anger and confusion of Angel Cruz, a man whose only human contact is with a guard (David Zayas), an overzealous public defender (Janel Moloney), and a born-again death-row inmate (Charlie Robinson). The script is edgy, the actors top-notch, and the emotions electric as the play draws to an all too realistic conclusion. This is exceptional theater for the ear.

I don't regret it
...but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it.
I'm not sure exactly what to tell you about this play. It's weird. If you like weird stuff, odds are decent you'll like it. It's a story with strong characters, including spiritual murderers and conflicted secular lawyers. I didn't find everything credible--in particular, why does the lawyer throw away her career for this particular client? It's supposed to be because he's so unusually compelling, but it doesn't feel natural to me and instead it seems like the detail that's meant to convince us.
If you're just coming across LA Theatreworks, I strongly recommend starting with the two Pulitzer play collections. If you've listened to a few and are looking for something /experimental/, this is a good choice.

I guess this heading is not optional after all
I am not a fan of this playwrights work. as a matter of fact I would go so far as to say I don't like his work at all. But I think this is his best play.
