Stand up gone serious, Almost dancelike, Illustrative articulated movement, Heartfelt, Seriocomedy with carpentry

See it if Fringelike U like, 2C talented stand up comic go 4 something more, carpentry+standup U like, attracted by "not since Nazareth" promo

Don't see it if topics of death & elder care disturb U, hate 1 man shows, don't wanna think about your fantasy death, disturbed by "not since Nazareth"promo

Quirky, Refreshing, Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Great writing

See it if you want to see an honestly written one-man show infused with humor that deals with grief & death.

Don't see it if you are not in a space to confront the realities of dying and/or do not enjoy quirky performances.

Disappointing, A bit dull, Earnest, Mannered

See it if you're ok w/a work that tries to engage, amuse, be philosophical, but misses the mark. "I could see what he was trying to do." He tries hard

Don't see it if you want a gr solo show (like Edelman's). Ben's mannered delivery grates. Tedious detail abt caretaking. I was bored. Could've skipped it.

Great acting, Slow, Quirky, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if You are looking for mid fringe theatre and themes of death, have a middle school sense of potty humor.

Don't see it if You are looking for something funny or thought provoking ideas about death.

Thought-provoking, Great staging, Great acting, Funny, Absorbing

See it if Ben Target, a multitalented comedian, performs a compassionate and funny play about love and loss on a simple but effective stage.

Don't see it if A heartfelt hour on death,grief, caregving&askig yourself,"What's your fantasy death?"isn't your thing,tho all the above is mixed w humor. Read more
