a waste

Beware on all x-minus one productions, all start and end with a loud shrill blast to your ears. Frank M. Robinson is a great writer. His best book was probably (The Power). X-Minus one bastardizes there stories and I don't know what the original of this was like, but this performance is a waste of time.
