Masterful, Intelligent, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if If you like Franz Kafka s Metamorphosis. This solo was phenomenal acting. Only one hour long it keeps you locked in.

Don't see it if If you want a lite show. If a bigger, more comfortable venue is for you.

Complex, Meta, Thought-provoking, Dark, Intense

See it if Feminist twist on the Kafka story, with the sister as protagonist. Creative, unusual writing that makes you think. Commanding actress.

Don't see it if You won't enjoy a weird play about a weird story. You don't like solo shows. Dark stage with brooding music. Read more

Unsatisfactory, Intransigent, Slow, Relevant, Edgy

See it if Kafka's story lives deep in your bones. So you can draw from the original to this reflection with enough ease to enjoy the new content

Don't see it if you don't know the original. I cannot imagine understanding this piece on its own? The performer often uses a soporific vocal cadence

Riveting, intense acting, Thought-provoking, Great concept, script and writing, Intelligent, accomplished performance, Ambitious

See it if You're up for seeing one of the strongest solo turns in town right now; Andrews exhibits a stage presence & vocal technique rarely seen now.

Don't see it if You dislike bare stages and solo shows, Kafka and/or erudite scripts, or nakedly intelligent technique and talent onstage. Read more

Intelligent, Ambitious, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if A female's take on Franz kafka's metamorphosis. The one woman solo performance was riveting and outstanding. Show was 1 hour.
