An incredibly powerful and moving story. The vocals and acting were outstanding. Diyan’s songs are not the highlight. Rather the somber lyrics effectively reflect the mood and backdrop of the characters’ struggles. This play demands, and earns, your full attention from beginning to end.. well done

3.0 star rating Mary Tiseo from Boston, Massachusetts


The cast we saw last night were all excellent singers. Unfortunately some of the cast were very weak actors. Several leads couldn’t project the needed emotion to move from script to song. A couple were not able to project well and much of what they said was lost to the audience. It felt disappointing. I could see a great theater experience every so often, but then it fell well short of what was intended.

3.0 star rating Dottie Goldstein from Los Angeles California


I agree with the majority of reviews that I read. The singing and acting were great and I also loved the drumming. I didn’t understand the story at all. The stage was always dark and often the actors faced each other and not the audience. I al am Dylan fan, but I only recognized one song. Despite all that, I enjoyed the singing.

2.0 star rating Sue from Kansas City, Missouri


This was a disappointment and I would have left at intermission, but I had carpooled. The voices were amazing, but the story line was convulted and hard to follow at times. This needs to be re-written with more UMPH! Again, the music/singers were great, sorry their talents were wasted on a poor story line.

I've never left a show at intermission before, even shows I wasn't enjoying much in the past, but this show? All I can say is that it needs to be workshopped and advertised better - people who went were fans of musicals and fans of Bob Dylan - both were disappointed. Its an "alternative" take on the musical genre and formula, and it should have been advertised as such. Its was also a reimagining of his songs, which while were alright for someone not familiar with them like me, did not sit well with the rest. The poor plot and random songs besides the point, the worst part that made me leave was how little I knew, understood, or cared about the characters. This production is a HUGE fan of "telling instead of showing", so tragic backstories are just narrated to you and expect it to make me care or understand their behaviors and decisions - it didn't. The pacing was so fast it was like the characters weren't allowed to express proper emotion ... in summary? Not worth the time or money!!

I’ve only seen two plays or musicals that I would never see again, and this is one of them. It was more a play that had music as the songs were more like the character’s inner thoughts. It was very dark (literally and metaphorically) with singers/actors frequently facing away from the audience. Many people around me left. There were so many side stories wound through that it made it difficult to get emotionally connected to the majority of them. The gentlemen near me confirmed that the general feeling around the bars at intermission was confusion. Many people left at intermission- one couple in front of me left after maybe 30 minutes. The singers were very talented but the plot was convoluted.

2.0 star rating Mike from Chicago, Illinois


I’ll give 2 stars to the cast just for making it through this long, messy show night after night. I could barely handle 2.5 hours of it. Too many story lines trampling over each other at full blast. In the end I felt nothing for any of the characters other than relief when they were put out of their misery as the house lights came up at the end.
