Frightening, Intense, Resonant, Relevant, Profound

See it if Packs a wallop, even virtually. Plumbs the meaning of life and fear of death.

Don't see it if You don't like intimate, intense, small productions.

Thought-provoking, Funny, Clever

See it if You want to see something different! The set design was really creative and the story was as well.

Don't see it if You have an issue with nudity, but it was very brief and made sense within the story! Can’t think of any other reason!

The New York Times
August 27th, 2021

"Edward Einhorn’s prismatic new sci-fi play...can be viewed as a metaphor for any number of current catastrophes, the pandemic and climate change among them."

"Alma Baya has the manner of absurdist drama but not the quickening sense of life underneath its surface. It feels like an exercise."

"A worthy, well-written and resonant addition to the genre. It’s grounded in the eternal precepts of dramatic literature, conflicts among clashing characters."

"An absurdist humanistic battle...The show is a strongly crafted dilemma, with stances easily taken, but never held firmly for very long. It plays with our brain, asking us to weight things against one another that would ultimately be quite difficult to judge, if we are being honest with one another."

A familiar science fiction set up, right down to the unisex silver lame uniforms…But the production also feels smartly tailor-made for the specific moment in which we are living.

"That's what makes Edward Einhorn's absurdist science fiction drama Alma Baya so impressive: it's nearly perfect...the play's many unknowns makes it engrossing, the sharp, often funny dialogue makes it a joy to watch. And there are enough twists and turns to keep things exciting. In other words, it's a masterpiece."
