New Play Stick Fly Is A Must See

Now I'll admit that when I was first offered tickets to see Stick Fly I wasn't really sure if I was going to go. I take that back. When the show was first announced a couple of months ago it sounded like something I would want to see and more than likely enjoy. However after a long day at work the last thing I wanted to do was sit in a theatre for three hours. Plus the fact that is was the night before Thanksgiving meant I still had a lot to do before I went into work the next day.

So there I sat in the theatre waiting for the show to begin. I'll be honest when the show first started I didn't like it. In fact I was sure that I would be leaving at intermission. Then something happened. Truth me told if you asked me what it was that changed my mind I couldn't tell you. All I know is within a few minutes I was hooked and couldn't wait to see what would happen next. I can't remember that last time that I enjoyed a play so much. Yes I can. It was August:Osage County which for those of you who have seen it can attest to how good it truly was.

Most people that I know that have seen Stick Fly say that reminds them of that show. In some ways they maybe right. Both are about dysfunctional families with secrets that threaten to destroy them for years to come. Let's face it. Everybody has a few skeleton's in their closet.It's how you choose to deal with them that is the true test. Now for those of you who think that Stick Fly is only for African-American audiences you couldn't be more wrong. Just because the family is black doesn't mean you can't relate to it or enjoy it for what it is. A great play that will have you still taking about days and weeks after you have seen it. I can't recommend it enough. Get your tickets to see Stick Fly on Broadway. You will hate yourself if you don't.
