See it if One enjoys crafting their own experience. Follow the characters as they unveil different memories. Bring friends & help pull it together.

Don't see it if One prefers traditional, sit-down shows. The actors frequently interact with the attendants. Active participation certainly helps the show.

See it if Geopolitical landscapes and their ever repeating cycles gives you cause for consternation. It is a reminder of foreign-policy manipulation.

Don't see it if A sobering reminder of our country's past and present approach to politicking upsets your stomach. The old ways persist with new technology

See it if Hearing the story of two sisters’ lives who’ve experienced a good portion of the 20th century intrigues you.

Don't see it if The current social landscape disinterests you.

See it if A geopolitical song and dance show agrees with you. The spirit of the recent Ukrainian uprising is captured in this delightfully somber show

Don't see it if One does not want to be involved in the show. Audience participation plays a large role in the show’s attraction and experience.

See it if Historical-based fictionalized drama bring joy to your night. Russia’s recent history is a poignant reminder of where we don’t want to be.

Don't see it if One has an aversion for Russian-based stories. Circumstantial events and one’s imagination allow this play to thrive.

September 8th, 2017

See it if A one-woman show w/ powerful pipes who sings about presidential mistresses delights you. It was a deviously creative & humorous performance

Don't see it if You expect to see more than one person on stage. This subversive approach to women's rights & gender equality goes down easily in song-form

See it if Interactive shows delight you. This show, based on true events, allows the viewers to become participants. A jaunt in the streets included.

Don't see it if Viewer participation brings about your social anxiety issues. Group work is essential, so if you're not a team player, stay at the bar.

See it if Politicking is a cause for alarm. Whether it's a small town or a highly populated country, the play's core theme has withstood time.

Don't see it if The status quo is too comfortable to reexamine. Ibsen's writing rarely allows for the viewer to remain inert.

See it if You want to experience some raw energy coming from a youthful cast.

Don't see it if One is looking to see a more polished show.

The Hairy Ape

April 16th, 2017

See it if Social class struggles give you a cause for concern. Upward mobility can be challenging when working within the depths of a ship's bowels.

Don't see it if Eugene O'Neill's writing makes you uncomfortable.

See it if The civil rights movement continues to affect you. Both plays are a painful reminder of how pernicious ignorance and contentment can be.

Don't see it if You are already making America great again.

See it if A song & dance approach to explaining a failed war sits well with you. A tragically funny way to address a messy mistake.

Don't see it if Support groups for warmongers seems unfair. It is not for those who don't appreciate dark humor.

See it if Seeing a monkey-wrench thrown into the works entices you. Not a single character escapes unscathed in this Inge classic.

Don't see it if You're looking for happy endings. These characters are too well-developed for a simplistic solution.

March 12th, 2017

See it if A one-woman show is your cup of tea. It is about how gun-violence unexpectedly affects strangers and surprises loved ones.

Don't see it if You expect to see more than one person on stage. There is no 4th wall to keep the audience at bay.

See it if One has an affinity for short stories. The tales are framed within a moment when stories are less likely to be told. Fairy tales & mortars.

Don't see it if Off-kilter war stories are uninteresting to you.

See it if A mid 30s first-love story resonates with you. The initial expression of anguish was demonstrative.

Don't see it if You're too old to experience someone else's first-love heartaches. The multiple expressions of love sickness were plenty enough for a year.

January 22nd, 2017

See it if You want to see what indecision looks like over the course of one's life. Acting, singing, and instrumentation were well choreographed.

Don't see it if You don't want a somber and sober (yet booze-filled) approach to the pursuit of love to rip you away from the land of make-believe

See it if You're not sure how to feel about mental health issues. The comedy is just the vehicle for a very personal journey through his life.

Don't see it if one doesn't feel mental health issues to be relevant. It's the kind of comedy that might bring tears.

See it if Peeking into the lives of the indigent & less-fortunate strikes you. The normalcy of their situations could easily mirror any viewer's.

Don't see it if One is looking for a production of moderate scale. The topic might expose some to a grim reality that often is ignored.

See it if Seeing people persevere through difficult times is intriguing. The mix of documentary, dramatization, & visual arts was very engaging.

Don't see it if The expression of the struggle with choices & feelings is difficult to experience. This rather non-linear story telling requires imagination

See it if You want to be a fly on the wall during therapy session. The tense relationships between familial strangers drives this narrative.

Don't see it if It reminds you too much of your own therapy sessions.
