Manhattan Theatre Club presents this world premiere drama about four lonely people longing for fulfillment. More…
In the New Mexico desert, a down-on-her-luck folk singer takes a job at a giant online retailer’s shipping center. Her young manager struggles to connect with his girlfriend newly relocated from New York. And a drifter living at a local campground dangerously links them all. 'Fullfillment Center' stars Deirdre O’Connell ('The Affair,' 'Circle Mirror Transformation') and is directed by Daniel Aukin ('Fool for Love.')
See it if you like great acting. The performances are incredible across the board, and the show is engaging all the way through.
Don't see it if you'd be frustrated by a show that keeps your attention all the way through, but when it ends, you're not sure what it all amounts to.
See it if To be entertained by the first scene where the boss is explaining the rules of the fulfillment center to the lady (fun, well acted)...
Don't see it if ...but the rest of the play is all downhill and seriously drags. Pacing way too slow. Ending is abrupt. 95 minutes but feels much longer.
See it if You enjoy watching good actors try their best with a script that does not engage the audience. It is very slow.
Don't see it if You want to see something dynamic. Although the characters are searching for something in their lives, the storyline seemed cliched.
See it if you want to see an uninteresting play with characters who R lost souls & are trying to make sense out of their existence in New Mexico.
Don't see it if you want a lost play that doesn't know where it wants to go or what it wants to say or express.
See it if You can work with vaguer theater productions, good performances, a story a bit hard to follow. And when you do, you wonder why it matters.
Don't see it if Your time is limited. There are much better thinks out there, such as on Stage 1 of MTC, right next door.
See it if Great cast interesting but at 90 minutes it still seemed Slow. No set very pared down design
Don't see it if Want a fast paced funny evening of entertainment with exciting sets and costumes
See it if you are interested in the anomie that the digital economy visits on the workplace and relationships, but don't expect much plot
Don't see it if open-ended, unresolved situations leave you unsatisfied. Lack of urgency or drama disappoints, credible character motivation is wanting
See it if This is an interesting showcase of good performances giving life to interesting characters searching for a better life, but . . .
Don't see it if there's a real lack of compelling narrative or cohesive story that maintains the audience's interest and empathy. And no set to speak of.
See it if People fascinate you, you like different types of storytelling, you like open-ended plays, you appreciate good acting
Don't see it if You like standard plays with beginning/middle/end, you get bored easily
See it if you want to see something that suggests multi generational thinking in caricature; ok with highly dysfunctional characters in 2017 setting.
Don't see it if Are looking for quick paced theatre; very slow.
See it if millennials finding solutions for their doleful situations amuses, you like to laugh, seeing actors prepare for their next scenes.
Don't see it if You don't like to be imaginative (no set), don't like tennis matches, stage was a runway, you like stories w/a plot, characters w/a purpose.

Don't see it if you favor more conventional fare or are not a fan of dark humor and unconventional staging.
See it if looking for a play that makes you think deeply about how society morphs our self-view and our ability to connect. The writing is incredible.
Don't see it if You are unable to follow thoughtful dialogue, or you only look for cheap action rather than nuance and difficult empathy in theater.
See it if you're looking for great writing that resists easy narratives, great acting, and something out of the ordinary from the usual MTC lineup
Don't see it if you're looking for something predictable
See it if you want more honest dialogue and true-to-life characters in theater. and if you go to plays to think about life w/o easy answers or endings
Don't see it if I don't know why people feel this show has no point. the drama was more hidden than in other shows but i thought each character had an arc?
See it if great acting. strong writing. sparse set allowed me to really absorb the dialogue. see if you are looking for fresh, unique, well-paced show
Don't see it if you are impatient and always looking for an obvious moral in a show. if you want big sets and theatrics.
See it if a play about four lost souls at major turning points in their lives. Some of the best performances I've seen this year. Also way more laugh
Don't see it if The storytelling and design are unconventional so if that's gonna freak you out you probably will not like this show
