Tony, Emmy & Golden Globe winner Mary-Louise Parker returns to Broadway in Adam Rapp's new play about a tenured professor, a talented student, and a troubling favor. More…
Bella Baird (Parker) is an accomplished professor at an Ivy League university who prizes her solitude. But when she faces a challenge she cannot tackle alone, she allies herself with a brilliant and mysterious student, Christopher (Will Hochman). Intensely intimate, this haunting play probes the question of what one person can do for another.
See it if Like two-handers with ponderous dialogue that sounds like writing instead of actual conversation.
Don't see it if Need authenticity in writing or acting. Did not find any of this production to be believable.
See it if you love Mary-Louise Parker and must see everything she is in.
Don't see it if if you don't like a dark room, bare-bones set, and almost a monologue. DARK AND DANK.
See it if if you want to see Mary-Louise Parker on stage. She does a great job trying to keep this play interesting
Don't see it if you want more than a two character play where the actors just talk to one another without much of a plot to keep you interested.
Also I did not get this play. Why does it exist? What does it have to say?
See it if you are such a fan of Mary-Louise Parker (who is usually fabulous on stage) that you are willing to watch her in a boring, untheatrical play
Don't see it if you think that there should be an added value being in a theatre watching actors interpret a part, rather than receiving descriptions
See it if If you had trouble sleeping the night before, The Sound Inside is a perfect cure for hangover insomnia
Don't see it if you don't like Talky, boring, lifeless shows, feel there's nothing worse that a writers reading their pretentious words out loud!
See it if you are a fan of non-stop dialogue and no action, and if you enjoy depressing, wordy, badly written plays.
Don't see it if you don't want to be reminded of EVERYTHING predictably terrible that can happen in two peoples' lives in a one-act play.
