At a little more than two hours, Harlem Duet runs a tad long. "I've tried very hard to get it under two hours," Williams confesses with a smile. "But so much is happening in the story that we just have to let it flow."

Harlem Duet: By Djanet Sears. Directed by Lowell Williams. Through March 25 at the Light Box at Goldman Warehouse, 404 NW 26 St., 786-953-8718; Tickets cost $20 to $25.

It's worth taking in, though. The performances are rich, and the compelling, emotionally resonant story digs in with multifaceted characters, a historical backdrop, and complex subject matter. The M Ensemble delivers the whole package splendidly.

Is this a review, or an interview, or a preview? Doing all three makes this a worthless mess. Interviews do not belong in a review; it sounds like the director was whispering in your ear telling you what to see. The result is hopelessly compromised, and worthless for those trying to determine the quality of the show. This should have been two stories; an interview with a company history, and the review.

What a shame, M Ensemble deserves better, and so do your readers.
