Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Insipid, Slow

See it if I partly watched this show thanks to these other reviews. I feel like this site has no credibility.

Don't see it if This was just terrible

86
Ambitious, Intelligent, Original, Thought-provoking, Great singing

See it if you like musicals about human struggles

Don't see it if if you are not interested in trauma and struggle

85
Earnest heartfelt, Adolescent angst, Well-acted

See it if you want to remember what it was like to struggle with growing up, risking in relationships vs. seeking safety in solitude.

Don't see it if you want a traditional Broadway-style song-and-dance show. Mostly lyrical solos and duets here, with two lovely harmonized trios in Act II.

95
Relevant, Original, Great singing

See it if you like a sweet musical score, and a touching study of how a personal crisis can effect someones entire life and relationships.

Don't see it if you want a light and frothy musical, or require glamorous costumes or fancy sets to entertain you.

67
Original, Slow, Ambitious, Relevant, Great singing

See it if you like plays about teen angst, but with central character who is unlikeable, and has one note (angst) throughout.

Don't see it if you like upbeat plays. There's a bit of comedy that helps, and strong singing voices throughout. Some moving songs.

Great writing, Original, Must see, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You have ever struggled with an inner demon, you are a woman, your life has been touched by eating disorders in some way

Don't see it if you are triggered by trauma, abuse, eating disorders, or body image issues

Theatre is Easy
September 2nd, 2016

"'Full,' a story about struggles and celebration of self, reminds us we are our own hero, that we have the power to get us out of our darkest places. The show is an act of love, and it shows. Though not without its occasional convolution, its honesty and heart top the festival this year...Berger's 'Full' is full to the brim of hope and love, both for self and for self care—something so drastically missing from life sometimes."
