Avg Score

Resonant, Slow

See it if you relate to frustrated, flawed characters in their late 20s or early 30s and you're OK with a talky, contemplative little play.

Don't see it if you need a finished product. This was the one Fringe show I'd like to see later in development - trim 10-15 minutes, improve sound design.

Great acting, Intelligent, Entertaining, Poetic

See it if you want to be entertained by strong acting, relatable characters, good dialogue.

Don't see it if you don't appreciate things taking a turn for the "magical." You need high production values.

Clever, Absorbing, Great writing, Enchanting

See it if Well-written piece of theatre that focuses on characters and their past secrest, and urban legend. Very cool ending.

Don't see it if Sadly the theatre has no a/c so bring water!

Resonant, Original, Quirky, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you enjoy strong performances and magical realism with a clever, modern day take on an ancient myth

Don't see it if unfortunately the venue gets very hot and can be a concern for patrons.

Ambitious, Original, Entertaining

See it if You like plot twists and have a good imagination.

Don't see it if You can't sit through longer, slowly revealing plays.

Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you're interested in a tangled tale of complicated friendships and dark secrets revealed in a well-written script.

Don't see it if if you don't enjoy sweating in a room so poorly air-conditioned that audience resorted to fanning with programs. Get some A/C in this venue!

Great staging, Enchanting, Must see, Resonant, Romantic

See it if You love reflective, absorbing, and intriguing dramas tinged with comedy.

Don't see it if If you don't see it, you're crazy.

Enchanting, Great acting, Intense, Resonant, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy an enchanting night of storytelling and great acting that surrounds you like a humid summer night

Don't see it if You're looking for special effects and if you find character driven storytelling boring

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Riveting, Intelligent

See it if You appreciate intelligent, witty, engrossing dialogue.

Don't see it if You would rather see something not as character driven
