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?
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
