The Bald Soprano is crazy, which is just why we love it so much. If you're not into weirdness, it may be a little tough to get into at first. Stick with it, though. Trust us, it's not just weird for weird's sake. The play is an experiment with language. Give it some time and by the end of it you just may come out of it with whole new appreciation for what words can do. On top of all that, it's totally freakin' hilarious.
