The production is so unique in terms of music and staging. Usher is a wonderful character, completely engaging. The songs & dialogue tell the story so well. For the feint of heart, know that their is a lot of cursing, F bomb, C bomb, N Bomb and more, not even causeing an eyelash flutter. We join in hoping that Usher, our hero, finds himself and learns that he is a wonder. We benefit from the supporting actors who play his inner feelings.
