From the show:
A tech startup tries to solve the hardest problem known to science: the female orgasm.

What’s the hardest part of making a dent in the universe? Finding the people who want to dent it with you. Last Gasp is a new comedy set in the waning days of yet another artificial intelligence startup in San Francisco. They’ve burned down to their last few dollars of funding trying to revolutionize the technology of self pleasure. These tech bros think that they know what women want, an artificially intelligent vibrator. But they’re running out of money and out of time, so they turn to the one person who might be able to save their startup, a female investor. When an experienced executive walks into their lab, she upends their little startup and their lives forever. They furiously pivot the product, get in and out of deals, and fall in and out of love. Will they ever figure out just what it is that women want?

Disappointing, Raunchy, Intelligent, Funny, Clever

See it if An interesting idea about the Silicon valley. It has good idea but rides the plot way to long and needed to go to next level.

Don't see it if Needs work, actors are just okay... need to speak up. If you need a Broadway production or something more established.

Slow, Funny, Cliched, Banal

See it if You like your jokes in Computerese.

Don't see it if You’re not interested in computerized massage phalluses and launching a business.

Lacking coherence, Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a show with a LOT of good ideas, but short on development of those ideas.

Don't see it if you want a show that rides a plot line

Also First, Kyla Sylvers has been placed in a role which she is not prepare... Read more Read less

Excruciating, Slow, Disappointing, Confusing, Cliched

See it if After a walk up to the 3rd floor to a warm theater, you don't mind a slow paced show which never really goes anywhere.

Don't see it if you're expecting a well done show or you're hearing isn't perfect. Unless you're caught in a downpour outside, find something else to do.

Also This was a show which had a good premise, but ended up being a "show a... Read more Read less

Slow, Excruciating, Disappointing, Confusing, Banal

See it if The entreprenurial world of new electronic devices is so fascinating for you that you're willing to forgive any shortcoming in a play on it.

Don't see it if Endlessly talky dialogue with very little action or humor in a dull and listless production might put you to sleep because this will.

49
Confusing, Disappointing, Banal

See it if a perfect show for techies with no taste

Don't see it if A boring plot was undermined by a new actor on book and a leading lady who could not project

Quirky, Ambitious, Slow

See it if Interesting topic with a twist.

Don't see it if Script needs lots of work.

Lots of "dick" jokes, Witty (when you could hear the dialogue), 2 actors did not speak loud enough, Intriguing concept, Silicon valley start-up comedy

See it if you're interested in the financial side of start-ups: how they get funded, what venture capitalists look for; you support indie theatre

Don't see it if you're fussy re: production standards; you need actors to speak clearly & at a good volume; you crave comfy seats + A/C in August + elevator

Also Why wouldn't a director tell Kyla Sylvers to deliver her lines so she ... Read more Read less

Slow, Banal, Disappointing

See it if If you see only one play about sex toys this year...make it one you enact yourself with actual marital aids. This is a bit of a mess, TBH.

Don't see it if It's slightly misogynistic. It was had to hear 2 of the actors. I didn't care about 2 of the 3 characters and actively hated the 3rd. Avoid.

25
Waste of your time, Slow, Dizzying, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if Just do not see

Don't see it if You are a smart person and reading reviews from previous victims of that disaster

Also 1.Show is located on a 3rd floor(no elevators and no prior notificatio... Read more Read less

Insipid, Excruciating, Disappointing, Cliched, Banal

See it if You are a masochist and like to punish yourself in unfunny one-liners in a work that is terribly written.

Don't see it if You enjoy theater.

Disappointing

See it if Just didn't enjoy it.. difficult to hear the female when she spoke.. confusing.

Don't see it if If you don't want to see a hodge podge of a play.

Interesting but poorly executed idea, Talky, Static, Bland, Disappointing

See it if you wanna take a chance that you'll enjoy it based on the naughty-sounding subject matter alone, since it's admittedly an interesting idea.

Don't see it if you're hoping for something hilarious and risqué, as this was a very dialogue-heavy play that ultimately didn't go anywhere interesting.

Also On the night I saw this during previews, a handful of people walked ou... Read more Read less

See it if See it if you have a good imagination and can imagine what it could become.

Don't see it if Don’t see it. It’s not worth the effort.

Slow, Insipid, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if you need a nap and you can't go home.

Don't see it if Just don't see it! I have never seen a play this bad. It is slow, too much technical talk & not a good story.

Also You couldn't hear what the female character was saying. And the dialog... Read more Read less

Funny, Confusing, Slow

See it if you want to experience different new shows, small or big, explore what's happening, and not risk spending too much money

Don't see it if you only want to see mature productions. This show definitely needs improvement for acting and story telling. Slow at the beginning.

Also I kinda like the geek guy who had to read the script because they had ... Read more Read less

See it if Have nothing better to do; pleasant young actors

Don't see it if No real play there and one can’t hear a word the leading lady is trying to say

Excruciating, Cliched, Disappointing, Banal, Slow

See it if you can create a story in your mind from what's going on on stage or if you need a nap

Don't see it if you have something to do for an hour and 45 minutes

Also The show starts off intriguing for the first 10-15 minutes, but rapidl... Read more Read less

"In the days of AI living in our bedrooms, how are human sexuality, and the female orgasm in particular, really affected? I wish the playwright had had the guts to go all the way down this path, instead of circling around and spending time on 'smart' verbiage."
