Enron was quite an enjoyable show. I had no expectations going in, and wasn't all that familiar with the details of the Enron story. Still, I found it to be quite enjoyable.

The play tells the story of the rise and fall of Enron by focusing on Jeff Skilling, the former CEO of Enron found guilty of 19 charges, and other members of the Enron management team. It sounds like a very boring topic for a play, but I found it to be incredibly engaging. The story is fascinating, and the play touches on issues such as the role of risk in facilitating societal progress, corporate accountability and fraud, and how an individual's perception sometimes differ from reality.

The set is very simple, but modern, and features a large TV screen which is used to present video clips during some parts of the show. Although there is some music, there isn't enough of it to make Enron a musical.

Overall, I found it to be a very enjoyable play that will keep me thinking for some time to come.
