BWW Review: THE BIG HEARTLESS at Just Say It TheaterBWW Review: THE BIG HEARTLESS at Just Say It Theater
by Zoe Burke - Feb 22, 2019

I am, in general, a huge fan of new works. There just seems to be this sense of vitality and urgency in original plays - the feeling that someone HAD to tell this story; and that kind of passion and need for expression has led to some of my favorite theatrical experiences.

'Some people's lives, they seem to go easy, don't they? In a straight line, floatin' down a river with the breeze at their backs. Others, like mine, like yours, well, not such a straight line. There's no explaining it or trying to figure it out…It just is. It's big. It's big and it's heartless.' (more...)
