The Mathematics of Longing Theatre Review

The Mathematics of Longing tackles this conundrum head on with the kind of flourish that round out a multi-media rampage as only live theatre can.

There are many equations that equal results that charge the mind with as much force as some of our baser instincts charge the body.   // ...
