Touching, Strong acting, Well-staged, Cliched, Absorbing

See it if you'd like a rom-com w a twist of medieval LARPing. Well-drawn chars. Bro Kay esp'ly likable. Lively, but long for plot. Gd use of sm stage.

Don't see it if you dislike monologues break 4th wall. Or bored by silly,rep'tive medieval scenes. Or want to learn (basic relnship stuff). Gd set. Clever.

Slow, Dizzying, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you want to follow three different stories. Poor direction and some poor performances do not help this production.

Don't see it if you want a more coherent play. This play is still at the workshop stage.

Slow, Great acting

See it if You want to watch a talented cast of actors deal with occasionally good scenes in the midst of a muddled, dull play.

Don't see it if You don't want to see a play that is slow, and confusing. There is potential to the story but it needs some heavy re-writes.

The author has actually done her larp research -- the larp humor was actually funny to this larper, Relatable, Funny, Cute

See it if you can empathize with people who can find meaning in taking themselves seriously in a fantasy world; you like rom-coms.

Don't see it if you'll write off roleplaying as "too weird for you" you're bothered by cringe-y romcom humor, or very occasional swearing. Read more

Great acting, Entertaining, Enchanting

See it if you care about and understand LARPs, you want charismatic actors who chew scenery, you like romantic sitcom plots

Don't see it if you find romcoms cliche, or don't like actors doing spotlight monologues at the audience, or want more politically charged material

"'ROUND TABLE' at 59E59 Theaters-Clever and Captivating"

"Vaynberg...has in 'Round Table' written a romantic comedy, a genre that currently seems as extinct as the dodo….A gratifyingly touching light entertainment, 'Round Table' should serve as gilt-edged calling card for some very talented young artists."

3/5 Stars "'King Arthur Sort of Remembered Then and Now': Liba Vaynberg's play views troubled romance during two disparate eras"

"The problem with Vaynberg's play, now being given its Off Broadway premiere, in which she plays the lead female role, is that it has so many interlocking plots that it can give you a headache trying to keep them straight. And as all of the actors play two - five roles it is difficult to always know who is who."

"Liba Vaynberg's 'Round Table' is a small play with huge aspirations. Vaynberg shows great promise as a playwright. Although the flights of heroic fantasy and lyric poetry detract from the overall effect of Round Table, the romance of Zach and Laura makes for a lovely centerpiece"
