Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow, Quirky

See it if you want to support the playwright or actors. There might be something here, but I never caught on. I found no humor nor reasonable horror.

Don't see it if you do not like almost 2 hour plays without an intermission or where characters appear in costume to scare some audience members up close.

Intense, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like horror and surrealism! there's some real spooky stuff, some jump scares, and some really fascinating acting.

Don't see it if all the varying elements don't totally congeal. if you're not into horror you probably won't get much out of this.

Ambitious, Great acting, Edgy, Absorbing, Clever

See it if something different and ambitious in Queens. Gripping writing and performances, interesting surrealism and spookiness, very unique show

Don't see it if you don't like experimental theater, you need linear narrative, aren't interested in surrealism or plays that play with the form of theater

The New York Times
June 7th, 2022

"For lovers of gritty, messy, mordant theater that cocks an eyebrow at the world and dissects its cruelties, the ingredients of a potent experience would seem to be assembled here. When 'Buggy Baby' made its premiere in London, in 2018, critics were left baffled but impressed by the hallucinatory tale."

New York Magazine / Vulture

"Actually, describing 'Buggy Baby' as a horror-comedy, which is what both McGregor and Azouz call it, is a disservice. The hallucinatory 'horror' touches lie like branches over the elephant pit below, which is the far more realistic terror of a woman trying to ignore a man’s increasing unreliability."

"Surreal and surreptitious, the comedy-horror 'BUGGY BABY' centers on some displaced immigrants in London seeking normalcy despite the lunacy in their lives. Written by Josh Azouz and directed by Rory McGregor, the US premiere of this twisted tale also features a multi-talented toddler character and a pair of dastardly rabbits."
