“Kentucky” is a Quirky Play – Review by Carol Moore

*** Recommended *** “Kentucky” is a quirky little play about a very dysfunctional family.  “Kentucky” is an odd, eccentric play.  It’s funny until it’s not.  It has music, but it’s not a musical.  It’s a poignant story about going home, with a moral (if there is a moral) – no matter what you think you know, you can’t know – or decide – what’s best for someone else.  3 Spotlights
