As advertised - a power-slam of a play! Wow. Kudos to Kristoffer Diaz. Wrestling on Broadway - who could guess that it would win a Pulitzer prize!? Well, although it's subject matter happens to be wrestling - it's about so much more. Americans, immigrants, money, culture, ignorance, racism, and identity. That's a whole lot of stuff packed into two hours.
Let me be upfront. I HATE wrestling. (If I liked it do you think I'd be writing a Broadway theatre blog?). But wrestling is a merely the perfect tool to lay out the argument. And "lay out" is exactly what Ushman Ally, Terrence Archie, Desmin Borges, Christian Litke, and Michael T Weiss do with the material. Power-Slam.
