REVIEW: "Heartland" at Luna Stage

The one word that best describes Heartland, currently at the Luna Stage in West Orange to April 28, is ambitious.  Its numerous themes are carried valiantly on the shoulders of three excellent actors.  Brian Corrigan is Harold, an aging professor of English formerly part of the American war effort in Afghanistan and now living in Omaha, Nebraska.  Lipica Shah is Getee, the Afghani daughter Harold adopted when she was a child, who tries to acknowledge her heritage by teaching English in an Afghani village.  Kareem Badr is Nazurllah, a mathematics teacher who meets Getee at the village, becomes romantically involved with her, then visits Harold in Omaha.
