Don't see it if Actors playing more than one part confuses or irritates you.

Don't see it if You want a big production. This two-person show is created by people whose passion for theatre shines through.

Funny, Great staging, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if You like campy drama. It was funny and well acted.

Don't see it if Can't think of a reason not to. It is a cute play and the piranhas stole the show

92
Absorbing, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Heady

See it if You have any interest in CS Lewis or his thinking or his writing. We were told the show was about 80 minutes long. It felt like 20.

Don't see it if You don't like shows that come from a Christian perspective. CAUTION: This show may change your life.

See it if You want to see a very talented performance.

Don't see it if You aren't interested in one-man shows.

70
Confusing, Entertaining

See it if You want to see a new musical, full of rhyming songs (it becomes fun to guess the next couplet), by performers who seem to be having fun.

Don't see it if You are looking for a plot, or don't like works that break the fourth wall.

74
Relevant, Thought-provoking, Long

See it if You enjoy unpolished workshop productions. It was a good, timely show, but needs a little work

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with shows that take a hard look at racial issues.

Slow, Thought-provoking, Funny

See it if You are a fan of John Cage or want to learn about him. The play caused me to do a (very) little research about him.

Don't see it if You are a fan of plays where "something happens." The most action you get here is making a pot of coffee. Which suits the man, I guess.

Clever, Edgy, Funny, Resonant

See it if You can relate to or want to see one person's take on addiction.

Don't see it if You don't like shows about addiction or don't want to see a LOT of drug use or profanity.

86
Funny, Great acting, Absorbing, Relevant

See it if You are interested in a Greek tragedy told with a lot of fun by an ensemble that works well together. Special note to the Furies.

Don't see it if You are claustrophobic or don't want to sit in the front row.

Great staging, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if You want to be entranced for two hours. If you aren't rethinking some things when you leave, you were sleeping.

Don't see it if You aren't interested in a play about a very current and relevant topic. With five actors in the play, you will find one you identify with

Disappointing, Edgy, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if You like a one-woman show that still needs a little work. It was emotional and sometimes funny, but there were a couple of potholes.

Don't see it if You don't like an emotional story that is sometimes hard to follow. I think it will get more polished, but for now it was a little rough.

76
Clever

See it if You like a different kind of theatre. This involved silouhettes and sand drawings.

Don't see it if You don't like one-woman shows. This was her story and it was well done.

90
Entertaining, Absorbing, Great singing, Funny

See it if Shakespeare is your thing. It was like two-for-one. The singing was amazing.

Don't see it if You can't climb steps. The theatre is up four flights, but very worth the climb.

94
Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Must see

See it if You like fun, interactive theater. This is a troup trying to make it big. See it

Don't see it if You want to see raw emotion in a production

Entertaining, Slow, Quirky

See it if you know the story and are interested in seeing an adaptation. I didn't know the story, nor did I get it.

Don't see it if rock musicals aren't your thing. There were some funny moments, but either I didn't get some of the jokes, or people were generous w/laughs

89
Funny, Thought-provoking, Profound, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if You like a one-man show in an intimate setting. This was a very courageous show to write. Maybe you don't relate to the "details"

Don't see it if You don't like shows or stories that are one person's story. It was a very personal journey that the writer is still on.

80
Funny, Romantic, Intense

See it if You're an English speaker willing to work to keep up with the play. Not my favorite show, but it was well done.

Don't see it if You don't speak fluent Spanish or aren't willing to read subtitles. Sometimes, the subtitles didn't keep up with the lines.

76
Thought-provoking, Slow, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if you are interested in one person's personal story. We all have a story to tell, and some can put it on a stage.

Don't see it if You don't like shows about HIV or shows that have the requisite nudity of a gay-related show.

78
Thought-provoking, Intense, Entertaining

See it if You want to begin to try to understand the lasting effects of the Holocaust, even to today. It was moving, as evidenced by the audience.

Don't see it if You have a short attention span. The play runs 90 minutes. Anyone should be able to do that, but I became fidgety.

87
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if You are interested in plays about current social issues. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to be involved in a Q&A after the show.

Don't see it if You're looking for theatre that is all wrapped up with a neat little bow. Mental health and life is messy, and this show doesn't candy coat

82
Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if You want a snapshot of the stories and struggles of homeless folks.

Don't see it if You are not a fan of rap. It's not my favorite genre, but I still enjoyed the play.

See it if You have or have not seen Shakespeare in the Park. Go!

Don't see it if There's no reason not to see this. Well, it's over now, but go see Shakespeare in the Park next year, no matter what

90
Absorbing, Funny, Resonant, Entertaining

See it if You are a fan of opera. This is Mozart's music with words in English and Spanish. But it's opera. And it's great fun.

Don't see it if You are tired of the White Guy being the villain. It's a great show, but I, personally, am becoming tired of the same bad guy.

See it if You're a fan of Shakespeare. This was a good prosuction.

Don't see it if You don't like modern interpretations or can't sit for three hours.

85

See it if You like an intimate setting and a show about relationships.

Don't see it if Shows involving cannibalism or the possibility, or post-apocalyptic shows are not for you.

72
Confusing, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You like the idea of moving from place to place to see different works. The format was interesting.

Don't see it if You want to see a single, long play.

See it if You want to be involved in a real live art auction (with play money). You might learn a little something, too.

Don't see it if You are clueless about modern art. This was a two hour show that could have gone two more.

Slow

See it if You have any interest in a story about Samuel Beckett and Andre the Giant. I thought I might, and found out I didn't.

Don't see it if You want to see something more than two guys talking. Clearly, they cared about the production; they didn't make me want to care about it.

Confusing, Great singing, Slow

See it if You want to see a woman-centric play. It was good, but a little confusing. And it just kind of ended. I enjoyed the music.

Don't see it if You don't like plays that don't flow or end ambiguously.

Great singing, Great staging, Romantic, Delightful

See it if You like a classic romantic extravaganza. And I have to mention the helicopter. Everyone knows the helicopter.

Don't see it if You aren't interested in a war story. There were a very few jagged edges, but I'm sure this will improve.

See it if You like shows about relationships. It definitely made me think about some of my past encounters.

Don't see it if You like shows with a lot of movement and action

Clever, Funny, Great singing, Entertaining, Must see

See it if You're a fan of the movie. Or not. I haven't seen the film, but the show was awesome.

Don't see it if You're a fan of James Monroe Inglehart. His run has ended. :( I saw one of his last shows and it was breathtaking.

80
Absorbing, Intense, Relevant

See it if you enjoy a Shakespeare standard. I've never seen Macbeth, but I'm glad I saw this production.

Don't see it if You want true-to-the-original staging. One thing I'm enjoying about different Shakespeare productions is that each production is different.

90
Funny, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if four characters and a lot of dialog interest you. I wasn't sure how it would go but was pleasantly surprised.

Don't see it if you have no interest in family and child related plots. A show about dealing with life, especially around kids.

88
Entertaining, Funny, Delightful

See it if You loved the movie and want to see a stage show that closely follows it.

Don't see it if You must see top notch acting. I liked the show, but the acting was uneven.

Don't see it if You are green and like to steal presents from children. C'mon, there's no reason not to see this.

Don't see it if You want a high-paced, action-packed show

Slow, Disappointing, Confusing, Great dancing

See it if You want to see a reimagining of two classic Indian tales. I didn't know the stories, so found them hard to follow.

Don't see it if You want a clear, concise story line. The actors' hard work was evident, but it was confusing.

90
Entertaining, Funny, Intense

See it if You like classic Shakespeare in a modern setting with a dash of humor. ThIs play is a tragedy, but it was pretty funny.

Don't see it if You have a short attention span.

85
Clever, Entertaining, Intense

See it if You like some Shakespeare. Iago was fabulous!

Don't see it if You want to see a fully staged production. The minimal staging and 30 seat "house" was intimate and homey

91
Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You want to be transported to Havana 1950. This cabaret was so much fun!

Don't see it if You're not a fan of bilingual performances. (Though, you will be after this)

Clever, Great singing
