"While Wayra, the latest iteration of Fuerza Bruta, is being billed as providing a "fresh experience" through "newly designed set and scenes," nothing about it actually feels that way. And in the age of mind-blowing environmental-theater shows like Here Lies Love, Queen of the Night, and even Sleep No More, Wayra is more or less old hat, no matter how high the actors fly around the room."

"Prepare to be blasted by gale-force gusts in the high-energy “Wayra” — which is fitting, since the title of the show means wind...Splashy and cool? You bet. But if you’re eyeballing your budget and you’ve seen “Fuerza Bruta,” you can let “Wayra” breeze by." Full Review
"“Wayra” is not an experience for control freaks or the claustrophobic. If you don’t like the idea of a plastic sheet that looks and smells like a massive shower curtain being unfurled directly on top of your head — that would be “Globa” — stay away. If emerging from a theater sopping wet would not add pleasure to your evening, you’d be taking a risk here: Some will be deluged." Full Review
"This post-modern show hails from Argentina and takes pride in being loud, brash and an all-immersive experience. It's a club experience like no other...It's lewd, a bit rude and outrageously trashy. You'll be on your feet throughout, so make sure to leave the stilleto heels at home!" Full Review
See it if you want something different, new, exciting, surreal, LOUD, tactical, zero 4th-wall, w/non-stop surprises. Incredible from start to finish.
Don't see it if theater means sitting. You're IN this show, standing inside all the action. One of the most incredible live experiences at a show EVER.
See it if you have someone that's visiting from out of town and wants to catch some late night entertainment.
Don't see it if you don't like the "not your usual theatre crowds", some of them might be intoxicated. And be warned there are strong uses of gun effect.
See it if If you love spectacle, this production is one of the best-realized versions of that I've seen; you feel like you're in a vivid dream.
Don't see it if the set is basically the worst possible version of a New York nightclub for tourists; way too loud and kind of yucky.
See it if you enjoy a thoroughly unique and creative spectacle and audience participation.
Don't see it if you're claustrophobic, cannot see shows with strobe lighting, or cannot stand for the length of an 80 minute show.
See it if you want to be surprised with innovative physicality and immersive, fluid staging
Don't see it if you want a clear meaning or message behind the performances; you don't want to stand for the entire performance; you mind getting wet
See it if you want to see moving art and don't mind standing and looking up through the whole show.
Don't see it if you don't like alternative performance art, standing on your feet for a whole show, looking above your head, or don't need a plot.
See it if You're into techno/house music and like to be in the mosh pit.
Don't see it if You don't like loud music or if you like a plot with your theater. Also, you stand during the entire "performance". Overrated.
See it if you want to be part of a unique show. All kinds of interesting entertainment. Swimming on the ceiling, trapeze artists walking on walls.
Don't see it if you don't want to hear loud music or standing for the whole show.
See it if you have never seen previous Fuerza Bruta productions; you're looking for a theatrical experience in a club atmosphere; you seek the unique.
Don't see it if you've seen previous incarnations. (Not much new in this "new" production.) And certainly don't see it if you desire conventional theatre.
