Critic Reviews for Zero Patience

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Its heart is in the right place. Its art, unfortunately, is not.

Amid the farce there are moments of lucidity and informative dialog that's both telling and historically important.

Audience Reviews for Zero Patience

Zero Patience is an avant garde musical about the patient zero urban legend who was rumour to be the person responsible for bring AIDS to North America. The plot was actually not too bad despite being incomprehensible, the numbers were unimpressive, acting was awful. The redeemable element was the enthusiastic performance by John Robinson and the anachronistic production.
