New Light Theater Project's new comedy explores the different ways we cope with grief, and how letting someone in helps us with letting something go. More…
From the show:
In Everything is Super Great (a comedy about what's missing), a typical day in the life of Tommy involves triple shot lattes, pining over the manager at Starbucks and arson at Applebee’s. Such distractions are therapeutic when your older brother has been missing for months and your mom won't stop force feeding you Pop Tarts, but when a well meaning, if somewhat dysfunctional, “art therapist” shows up on his doorstep, Tommy must finally face his loss.
See it if you like contemporary dramedies. EISG has strg actors who improve the script. Funny, touching moments, but plot holes & some slow spots.
Don't see it if you want a fully polished script. Idea of people disappearing is overdone. Still, engrossing/likeable...esply central char (Will Sarratt)
See it if Lighthearted way to deal with heavy themes. Absorbing and fresh. Solid acting. Very clever sets for a very small space.
Don't see it if It's a small show.
See it if You enjoy shows with quirky characters and interested in stories about loss.

See it if I sort of loved it. Rich characters, smart script. Very satisfying show.highly recommend.
Don't see it if You don’t like small intimate shows. This felt very real life.
See it if Comic satire + grief drama had me in stitches one min & tears the next. Four suffering souls put on hilarious flimsy facades. Great acting.
Don't see it if You won't enjoy a dark comedy that throws contrived twists at you in order to set up its funny scenes and resolutions.
See it if you like smart indie film, even when you’re seeing it done with stage resources.
Don't see it if you’re in the mood for a panoramic story: This one, though smart, is small.
See it if Quirky dramedy of brother missing familial love. Mother and son dynamic is written well. Not everything sad remains sad with coping skills.
Don't see it if Everything in a tiny, cramped package is not so super great. Holidays always squeeze out the last dry drip of dysfunction.
See it if Go to see these wonderful actors. The play is surprising, funny and sad. Great dialog, interesting, & touching show. Highly recommend it.
Don't see it if you want to see a big broadway show or musical. This is a perfect, but small show in a tiny theater.
See it if How one family dealing with loss of a love one. Has some humor/dry humor.
Don't see it if Anxiety, panic attacks, missing love one or you looking for a just happy show.
See it if Want a small, but surprisingly compelling ensemble piece that looks at loss, relationships, grief, dysfunction in a pretty endearing way.
Don't see it if Want a big story arc with no plot holes, or don't want to see some scenery-chewing acting.This one mostly charmed me & I was carried along.
See it if You'd like something contemporary, funny and moving by a young playwright to watch. Great set. Fantastic performance by Marcia Debonis
Don't see it if You don't care for small intimate spaces. You can't related to millennials.
See it if This 95-minute Play is so touching and funny, at the the same time. Totally in my wheelhouse in terms of the type of show I like. I totally
Don't see it if Recommend. No reason not to see and tickets 🎫 are inexpensive. It’s in a black box theatre 🎭 and this works, because we’re (the audience)
See it if you want to see a well-acted and well-written tale of four struggling people that deftly balances comedy and pathos.
Don't see it if you want an elaborate production and/or a show that is strictly a drama or solely a comedy.
See it if 2 of 4 actors are brilliant & deliver touching moments; that alone doesn’t save the aimless writing; weak unreasonable happy ending
Don't see it if Feels dragging for almost 100 min without intermission; intimate black box theatre space, very close to actions; balloon explosion startles
See it if You would enjoy a low key, clever and poignant play about a young man coping with the disappearance of his brother.
Don't see it if You find quirky, indie-inspired works grating. You don’t like slice of life, somewhat aimless stories.
See it if You like family dramas, The story represented what's going on in real life in a lot of families, could be frustrating to watch...
Don't see it if You prefer something more entertaining and funny.
See it if You’re interested in a small scale examination of a young man and his mother dealing with a loss.
Don't see it if You like plays with a clear plot. This feels like a bunch of sequential scenes without much point. If you don’t like quirky, family dramas.
See it if You enjoy family dramas, quirky comedies, appreciate ensemble chemistry, great acting
Don't see it if You don’t enjoy off Broadway plays, minimalistic sets, have difficulty tolerating a 90 min show without intermission
See it if you appreciate really good ensemble acting and laughs in a fast-moving, linear script with meaning.
Don't see it if you want surprising twists or deep meaning.
Also The cast of four are excellent.
