See it if you want to see the masterful Austin Pendleton in a play he feels strongly about, as well as a solid performance by Eric Joshua Davis.
Don't see it if you're looking for a cohesive plot or a well written female character, and you have no patience for themes that take you in multiple circles
See it if Gay alcoholic artist struggles with self-doubt and obsession with handsome agent. Austin Pendleton is a treasure. Eric Davis fine as agent
Don't see it if Seems like an early draft. Two minor characters could be cut. I also liked Peter Collier as the cocky young artist.
See it if You're an avid fan of Pendleton & up for a repetitive, unresolved, nearly 3 hour mellow-drama with art-world clichés; rarely rings true.
Don't see it if You expect a developed exploration of the author's disjointed program statement regarding art & identity, self worth & conformity.

Don't see it if You want a well-edited, well-directed and well staged production - most of thus is really slow and lacking in theatrical substance
See it if AP fan, no cost or friend/relative in cast.
Don't see it if Playwright poor director. Contrived situations prevail. 2:45 unduly long given material. Same material covered in every scene. Laggard pace.
Also Boring play; needs 30 minutes cut. Theatrical Ambien.
See it if you might be interested in a story about an aging "bitter, bisexual alcoholic."
Don't see it if you don't like Austin Pendleton or want to see something light.

Don't see it if if you do not have the patience to follow a complex story to develop and mature. in a slow motion.
See it if You are an August Pendleton fan. Like gay artistic men dwelling on the meaning of their lives.
Don't see it if You don't like long plays that desperately need editing and cutting.
See it if You enjoy great actors doing their thing: Austin Pendleton, Peter Collier, and Liarra Michelle all shine. Some interesting concepts at play.
Don't see it if The script still needs work. Further development -- and cuts -- are necessary. It would help if the playwright were not also the director.
See it if you want to see an attempt at a serious, complex, psychological relationship play and want to see what Pendleton is up to
Don't see it if overly long, tedious, not believably, not well written or staged
See it if see it for Austin Pendleton's performance. He does the best he can with overwritten material and aimless direction.
Don't see it if you expect a great play. The play itself needs lots of cuts and playwright Stuart Fail does him self no favors by also directing. It's long.
See it if you want to see the writings of a exciting new american playwright.
Don't see it if The play is complex and takes awhile to get going but second act makes it worthwhile.
See it if This play, shown at a small off-Broadway theater, deserves a production in a larger venue. Austin Pendleton delivers a masterly performance
Don't see it if You need action, or if you don't appreciate great acting
See it if You want a good but unintentional laugh.
Don't see it if You don't mind sitting through a mind-numbingly badly written and atrociously acted play, and calling it a play is generous.
See it if you like stories that parallel real life situations (the very sad and the happy)
Don't see it if you dont like long shows or gay themes (it deals with homosexuality, I dont mean it's flamboyant and sassy)
