Great acting, Cliched, Entertaining

See it if Well-delineated characters with good chemistry. Some genuine good moments of interaction.

Don't see it if Perhaps over-evocative of Waiting for Godot. Sometimes got lost in its own mysteriousness.

Theatre is Easy
August 16th, 2016

"Sometimes, it’s unclear if the difficulty the trio appears to have connecting is always intentional. Occasionally, the script falters on the side of pastiche and becomes foggy in its own philosophizing, but it’s a hearty go at a twenty-something’s coming to terms with their own mortality...'Each Brought Some Silences' oftentimes becomes an enigma in and of itself—ironic considering it is all meant to answer questions, not create more of them."
