Funny/touching, Script needs work, Resonant, Strong acting, Absorbing

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)

Absorbing, Entertaining, Good acting, Good writing

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.

Witty, Heartfelt, Quirky, Sad, Funny

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. Read more

Contemporary, Affecting, Strong performances

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. Read more

Dramedy, Resonant, Quirky, Great acting, Absorbing

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.

70
Entertaining, Slow, Funny

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.

Time Out New York
November 26th, 2019

4/5 Stars "Unfolds in lovingly rendered, beautifully acted, mostly two-person scenes that demand you lean in as these ordinary folks try awkwardly to connect during the holidays...These people may not be destined for glory, but they're worthy of our attention and our tears."

"Director Sarah Norris-along with a gifted quartet of actors-has gently and thoughtfully taken Brown's story up a notch, finding colors that may not have been evident on the page but that augment the script nicely. The resulting production is a lovely thing to behold."

"If your favorite Christmas song is 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas'—meaning you like your holiday entertainment tinged with sadness—'Everything Is Super Great' is the show for you this holiday season."

Score: 87% "In a humorous take on (mis) communication, dysfunction and loss, 'Everything is Super Great' is a unique offering for the Christmas season. It manages to be charming without being insipid, a refreshing departure from the usual Holiday fare."

"Given the extent of this collective loss and brokenness, sarcasm becomes palpable in the tile of Stephen Brown's play. Clearly, everything isn't super great for these four inter-related characters whose lives are like many others living cross the United States and the world."

"The title…doesn't translate into a super great play, but it's still a pretty good one, funny and poignant, very well acted, with laughs and tears enough…While all the characters…suffer…loss, they also learn, as the song goes, that people needing people are the luckiest people in the world."
