  1. What an incredible show! Possibly the most unique and striking performance I’ve seen. The visuals are exactly as stunning as they appear in previews, but even expecting an amazing show, it still was jaw-dropping. The innovative use of projection is (almost) never gimmicky and is very cleverly utilized. I knew I was going to be in for some interesting uses of the stage, but I was quite impressed with how the projection work complemented the story so organically. Because while everyone will tell you how gorgeous the show is, I have to say that I wasn’t expecting something so energetic and raw from the story. The narrative is tight and engaging, and delivered with a nice mix of emotion and wit. The whole thing is electric. The actors are so versatile, switching rapidly from character to character, humor to drama. It’s a very physical performance – the entire production is like a loose electrical wire, sparking and twitching in the street…HIGHLY recommended…#PlataQuemada

      Thank you for writing, Michael. I have been trying to tell people what to expect with this show and utterly failing. But you nailed it! Especially the energetic part of it. “A loose electrical wire, sparking and twitching in the street” is exactly what it feels like to watch it!
