*** Recommended *** “Beyond Caring” is one of those plays … I didn’t like it, yet I recognize the excellent work by the playwright, the talented cast and the creative team. Lookingglass Theatre turned their space into a grim, gray factory, even using hanging fluorescents instead of theater spotlights to light the space. If you want to understand the lives of America’s underclass, “Beyond Caring” will help. 3 Spotlights
