Things take a dramatic turn for them both when new client Emily commissions baby doll Eva. The dark comedy that ensues takes an unsettling look at love, loss, trauma, and the power of creation.
See it if Loved the 2009 production at the Public and wondered "Where did it go?". It is here at Soho Rep. Fascinating Concept
Don't see it if If you need hilarity and laughter with no thinkin involved this is not for you.
See it if you want to see convincing acting in a somewhat unconvincing & overlong psychological thriller focused on the mother-daughter complex.
Don't see it if u suffer from pediophobia; u expect this dark comedy about a woman & her dolls to be merely a charming send-up of a girl & her Barbies.
See it if Victims (creator/client) cleave to their emotional pain fashioned into a tangible reborn-formed doll, sharing manifested trauma in recovery.
Don't see it if Early on, it's easy to not hold on to the reality set forth as Barbie could drive her roadster through the holes in this dismissible script.
Also Reborning is a craft that does actually help those in need to process.
See it if you want a little show that packs a big punch. Emotionally powerful. Characters are flawed but complex. One truly terrifying moment.
Don't see it if you don't like small venues or shows that might scare you.
See it if Just don't. It's a weak script and the performances are not at all believable. Didn't help that the AC in the theatre was broken!
Don't see it if You seek an enjoyable and interesting night at the theatre.
See it if you want to see a dark and creepy play. The acting is great across the board. It was refreshing to see a creepy play which is unusual.
Don't see it if you do not like scary content. The show feels very incomplete. We were shocked that the play was over when it concluded.

See it if The play has an interesting premise, and the performances are good, however the script is unfocused and leaves you unsatisfied.
Don't see it if You are not interested in psycho-drama. The performances are good but the writing is muddled.
See it if You are an Ily Rickards fan lol You enjoy dramas You like plays that make you think. You are a new mother or thinking about motherhood.
Don't see it if You are looking for a strong comedy. You don’t like touchy issues dealing with trauma and addiction. You are not interested in non musicals.
See it if you like to see unusual plays out of the box. The acting is what shines here too. It wasn’t perfect but it evoked human feeling.
Don't see it if you want a cookie cutter plot. I wouldn’t read too much about this play beforehand. Set expectations aside.
See it if You're a fan of the actors (like myself), you're not super creeped out by death or dolls and like modern plays
Don't see it if Dolls creep you out. If you're looking for a more polished production. This one felt gritty. A little dirty, like the characters.
See it if You’re interested in a thought provoking show with fantastic acting. The show is smart, funny and dark.
Don't see it if You have children with you. It wouldn’t be appropriate and they likely won’t follow along.
See it if you're a fan of the actors and want to dive into a dark and psychological plot.
Don't see it if you are looking for something fun and light. This is not a musical or comedy. This one haunts you for a few hours after curtain call.
See it if ...you are comfortable with the subject matter--not for everyone.
Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with theater about tough issues, such as the death of children.
