    I am not much of a theatre goer however I thought that the acting and the arrangements were fantastic. I kept thinking that the main actors must have spent many hours learning all the monologues and the two way conversations to get to this level of performance. The parallel between the stories and simultaneously on the stage worked really well. It was great to see David Harewood and Zachary Quinto in a play and in these polar opposite characters. Obviously I had high expectations from them due to their well established acting careers and they didn't disappoint at all. The supporting actors were very good too and hopefully we'll see more of them on the big screen. James Graham was a bit mean in his portrayal of Andy Warhol or maybe I took that part too seriously even though I smiled.
