Resonant, Great staging, Intelligent, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if You want to see a good spin on a one person show. Multi media presentation made it much more interesting. Storyline was very relatable.

Don't see it if You hate one person shows, or if you can’t handle the idea of facing the ideas about death and dying. It’s a hopeful story but still hard. Read more

Slow, Intelligent, Dizzying, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like lots of talk and ever changing projections and lighting - here it was too much for me to grasp everything and the story faded.

Don't see it if you are not into listening to a detailed story told by multiple characters all acted by one person. Braininess competes with entertainment.

Riveting, Remarkable plot, One actor many believable characters, Extraordinary use of projections, Educational but not didactic

See it if you want an extraordinary theatrical experience combining fine acting, intriguing plot and masterful production.

Don't see it if you are afraid of the complexities of how our brains work and distressed by the messy innards of our bodies.

Great acting, Demands your attention, Educational, Absorbing, Compelling

See it if You want to know about what it might be like to be in a coma,and/or the aftereffects of a brain aneurism. This is a complex story well told

Don't see it if you are facing issues about death, and the decisions that must be made along the way. Also, I see this having greater appeal for post-50s.
