See it if you're interested in emphatically experimental explorations; if you enjoy encountering a theatrical world unlike many you've seen before
Don't see it if you really need to understand what's happening the world/story of the play; if you're not into boldly experimental ways of doing theater
See it if you're open minded about your theatrical experiences and don't mind thinking "WHAT THE..." every 3 seconds (in a good way:))
Don't see it if you need to understand every little thing that goes on in front of you.
“The world premiere of Buran Theatre's ‘T.B. Sheets’ by Adam R. Burnett appears to be heavily influenced by Thomas Mann's ‘The Magic Mountain.’ The question is if you are going to leave out all of the novel's political debate, why bother choosing ‘The Magic Mountain?’ The format of this multimedia performance piece includes dance, mime, music, song, photos and movement. All of it looks and sounds like the happenings of the 1960's and 70's.”
“Despite the debatable parallel between tuberculosis and gender fluidity, ‘T.B. Sheets’ is a reassuring, poetic and occasionally funny play with songs…You may find yourself in love with the whimsical characters...Unfortunately, as directed by Lisa Nevada, the collective of patients and staff never truly becomes an ensemble and, at times, the entire show seems like a party of art college students…'T.B. Sheets' would benefit from some further fine-tuning of the performances.”
