Great set, Ambitious, Too many unbelievable moments, Disappointing, Indulgent

See it if You can be entertained with a unique script, even if it’s flawed. Too many eye roll moments to be forgiven but not a bad effort.

Don't see it if You expect perfection. This is definitely a work in progress but there are a few things worth seeing here and the playwright has promise.

Confusing, Banal, Excruciating, Quirky

See it if You want some good actors. A really good set. If your interested in hippies and a commune style play.

Don't see it if If you want to see something meaningful or well written. This is another jumbled, non factual global warming story.

Disappointing, Great staging, Confusing, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you would enjoy a look at a young people's commune in today's "green" society. Some good points made/explored on a fantastic set.

Don't see it if you expect to hear every word - actors talk in all directions and I missed a lot. Immature audience reactions made it difficult to enjoy.

Ambitious, Confusing, Resonant, Interesting staging, Indulgent

See it if you remember the communes of the 1960 & 70's. The situation catches the intentions and innocence of that era.

Don't see it if you need logical theatrical structure. Some of the actions make no sense while others are have weirdly disproportional responses.

Cliched, Disappointing, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if Sanguine millennial vies for acceptance with self-suffiency community of misfits. Detailed Off-B'way set. Remains on plot-track. Good lead.

Don't see it if Low-quality Off-B'way status. Strobe effects. Violence. Drugs. Alcohol. Whip cracking. Knives.Toys. Repeated dominatrix aspirations.Cliches.

Well-written, if not well-resolved, Absorbing, Ambitious production values, Resonant, Young, committed if inaudible cast

See it if You're up for a good looking production, well paced and clever if ultimately unresolved, in the end rather fantastic story

Don't see it if You can't deal with themes involving hippies, idealism, communal Utopian living, lesbians, free sex, drugs, orgies or young adults. Read more

Village idiots

See it if In the neighborhood and need a quick culture experience.

Don't see it if Surrounded by obnoxious hippies obsessed with avoiding society. Peace out. Dopey audiences with noisy phones prevail here. Read more

“Nir’s utopia-in-the-wilderness yarn ‘Eco Village’, is inept...With turgid writing and overacting...Thinly written characters in clichéd situations are a challenge for the actors who all go full throttle with their forceful characterizations...There’s not much in the way of plot other than behavioral incidents and Nir fleshes out her characters with a bare minimum of biographical details...Other than serving as a showcase for its emerging cast, 'Eco Village' doesn’t make much of an impact.”
