Relevant, Touching, Moving, Resonant, Great writing

See it if You’re open to having a shared experience reliving what it was like to live through the pandemic — with both pain and joy.

Don't see it if You don’t want to see a barebones production about the pandemic. This is somewhere between a cabaret & a developmental workshop.

Catharctic for the playwright, An hour too long, Ambitious, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if Interesting to watch a flashback from the two years of confinement and loss. Performed with heart by Lori and the cast. Sad nostalgia.

Don't see it if 1st act was too slow & could have easily been trimmed down but enjoyed the second act. I saw the last performance which was very touching .

Cathartic

See it if Re-living some high-and-darklights of Covid from Suzan-Lori's perspective. Painful and difficult moments but ultimately cathartic & healing.

Don't see it if Play about Covid's too soon; 2020's Black Lives Matter, anti-Asian hate, Trump's actions, etc.; play with music (not musical); Joe's Pub. Read more

Too long, Resonant, Emotional, Original, Ambitious

See it if you want the opportunity to reflect on what 2020 was like. It's stunning to look back and remember what we collectively experienced.

Don't see it if you aren't ready to relieve the early days of the pandemic. Some seats in Joe's Pub are physically uncomfortable and this is almost 3 hours. Read more
