From the show:

There is a moment when you want to look ahead to the future, but the past is eating you whole. In Sunday, friends gather for a book group, anxious to prove their intellectual worth, but that anxiety gets the better of any actual discussion as emotional truths come pouring out.

Overrated, Indulgent, Fluffy, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if If you want a show about the intellidencia and dealing with their issues. 20 to 30 yr old trying to cope with society. If you do not care if

Don't see it if The play is all over the place. If you like well written plays that take you somewhere.

1 beautiful scene, Lazy writing, Some neat dancing, Wildly uneven

See it if watching 5 boozed-up, drugged-out, insecure 20-somethings fight for intellectual & personal validity sounds like a fun night.

Don't see it if you are expecting either a coherent drama or a thrilling theater experiment.

Also In “Sunday” there’s a late, lovely 2-character scene—unexpected becaus... Read more Read less

Unlikeable characters, save one, Rambling, Inexplicable, Long, slow slog, Millennial navel-gazing

See it if OK w 20-somethings trying to prove their intellectual mettle over a book in LONG night of drink/drugs. 1 lovely scene betw neighbors shines.

Don't see it if Haven't read Anne Tyler-you'll lose 2/3 of play. Can't watch sad young people trying to sort life out or are triggered by depression.

Also So much of this is pointless and misbegotten. The direction is quite s... Read more Read less

Misses the mark, Uneven, They are gen z - not millennials

See it if you're interested in a take on Gen Z; you want to be told what to think; you are willing to endure an uneven show with some very odd choices

Don't see it if you want an authentic look at the lives of 20-somethings; you want fully fleshed out characters; it's any day other than Sunday

Relevant, Resonant, Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if you can tolerate a play that talks in stead of acts. With the exception of the scene between Marie and Bill which is wonderful it is flat

Don't see it if you want theater and characters to have substance and energy.These are unidimensional figures of little interest except for Bill who matters

Disappointing, Confusing, Great acting

See it if The angst of millennials expressed badly...it's talks a lot but says nothing...

Don't see it if you want 90 minutes of a cohesive narrative...

Banal, Disappointing, Indulgent, Intense, Quirky

See it if you want insight into 20-somethings mental state. They really are lonely and miserable according to this. Probably our fault, no doubt.

Don't see it if you have no interest in understanding millenials. It's not a requirement. But, you don't want to be a grumpy old theater goer, do you?!

Quirky, Disappointing, Indulgent

See it if you are a 20 something and can relate to their angst.

Don't see it if You dislike unnecessary staging antics or expect a traditional play. Forget it if you have hearing issues.

Confusing

See it if You’re 20-something and having existential questions.

Don't see it if You’re looking for an audible, coherent play — which isn’t to say there’s no talent here.

Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You like new theater or to just see a show. There are some good moments and the piece is, overall, well acted.

Don't see it if This show seems to have a hard time finding it's voice. Elements are extremely confusing and the characters aren't all that relatable.

Simple, Predictable, Indulgent, Slow, Moving

See it if if you enjoy intermittent electronic, light crazy dance sequences. if you like seeing portraits of young millennials on stage.

Don't see it if if you want a new, fresh perspective on young people. if you want an ambitious structure or content. if you want likeable characters.

Also It was fairly decent, though I found the dancing interludes to be quit... Read more Read less
