See it if you love scientific and intellectual excursions and you like rap music

Don't see it if you don't like rap and you think scientific inquiry is boring

The Stone Witch
Midtown W
Overwrought, somewhat cliched, ultimately disappointing
March 15th, 2018

See it if you'd enjoy the irrational ramblings and outbursts of a sad, self-centered old artist with lots of energy but little intellectual substance

Don't see it if you want a truly thought-provoking script; or you hate cliches,i.e., crazy, brilliant, blocked male artist &ever-loyal, bitchy female editor

Also The visuals in this play were creative and appealing. Rupak Ginn was v... Read more Read less

Also If one were unfamiliar with Southern Italian stereotypes, I suppose th... Read more Read less

See it if You are likely to be moved by women sharing personal experiences, some mundane, some tragic

Don't see it if You are revolted by unquestioned religious devotion

Kafka And Son
Soho/Tribeca
Intense, Thought-provoking
October 6th, 2017

See it if you are curious about the mind of Kafka (1883-1924), and fascinated by psychological ramifications of the child-parent relationship

Don't see it if you're looking for an entertaining story line or don't care for intense psychological exploration, the unguarded display of a tortured soul

Also This is definitely Fringe Festival material, not standard theater fare... Read more Read less

Don't see it if You're turned off by stereotypical dumb-ass brutes with abused girlfriends and Bible-thumpers drawling in Southern accents about honey-fille

Also I really wanted to be moved by this play but unfortunately got bored b... Read more Read less

Riveting, Relevant, Must see, Masterful, Great writing
September 12th, 2017

See it if you want an entirely new theatrical experience that brings history alive in a way that is a revelation...profoundly moving and exciting
