    Your correct about the acting being off. But i thought there were some exceptions.... Lessley Harmon seemed to do a wonderful job with his part, though it seems that he had an advantage as his pattern of speaking in real life, including a stutter, fit the character to a T. Arcale Peace (i believe thats who i'm speaking of, he played lamar?) did a wonderful job with his closing speech, and a passable job the rest of the show. I also thought Brandon Smith (again, I'm assuming I'm speaking of the right person, the boy with the long hair?) did a wonderful job, and he had me in tears in his last speech. I have to admit he did seem to be struggling and trying to overcome bad writing, which I'm guessing was holding him back. Overall i thought the biggest problem with the production was that it mentioned the "Lucasville 5" many times, and yet the only member of the 5 who talked more than 3-4 times was Skatzes, with the exception of Hasan's narration.
