See it if Each performer was incredible in their own way. I enjoyed the format of three 40 minute pieces with an intermission between each.
Don't see it if Not the usual musical, not songs but solo sung-through performances. Pared-down, simple sets, but such intense performances!

Also Unfortunately, it closed today. So glad I got to see it.

See it if Three one act musicals. Great evening. Funny/touching/thoughtful. Blumenkrantz piece/Rebecca Lucker=incredible
Don't see it if Each piece is intimate with only one actor. If you want a larger cast you'll be disappointed.
See it if you love contemporary musical theater (non-rhyming lyrics in two). 1 funny, 2 poignant. Gr acting/singing/musicians. Strong staging/lighting
Don't see it if you get impatient. All 3 are long & slow-paced (2 hr 40 min). Need cuts. Not memorable music. Themes: loneliness, loss, motherhood.
See it if you appreciate excellent acting and even more excellent writing. This was a very moving theatrical experience for me.
Don't see it if you do not like one person shows or enjoy musicals with lush romantic melodies. Do not go if you want funny and happy stories.

See it if 3 beautiful solo musicals with unforgettable performances. 1-Farah Alvin as a NYC woman who has an imaginary relationship with a neighbor
Don't see it if 2-Finn Douglas as a 10 year old boy caring for an injured bird. Charming, sweet, totally adorable. Finn, at 11, is a gifted child performer
See it if you want to see 3 really terrific one act musicals. Clever, funny,touching... too many superlatives for excellent theater,
Don't see it if you are looking for a big b'way musical.
