Ambitious, Experimental, Great cast, Great staging, Thought-provoking

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

Clever, Funny, Great acting, Hilarious, Quirky

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. Read more

Ambitious, Dizzying, Excruciating, Quirky, Excellent movement

See it if you love experimental theater. It is a wild and wacky ride, telling its story in movement, emotion and distorted text.

Don't see it if you want a traditional theater experience. You quite often don't understand what is going on and may not care.

Sensual, Exquisite, Funny, Epic, Dizzying

See it if you desire a sense-filled, sensual & immersive experience in the theatre that respects & empowers all bodies (esp. queer bodies).

Don't see it if you carry any prejudices with you.

100
Absorbing, Great writing, Great singing, Masterful, Must see

See it if you are ready for a revolution in theatre-making: non-binary storytelling, masterful humor & heart, and ingenious imagination.

Don't see it if you want a kitchen sink play about straight white people!

99
Exquisite, Funny, Dizzying, Epic, Intense

See it if you want evening of wonder and mysticism and adventure and sensuality!

Don't see it if you've not got a heart :)

95
Absorbing, Dizzying, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if you love ensemble theatre and rich, dense text and performances.

Don't see it if you're a Broadway person - this is progressive and challenging theatre for open minds.

Great writing, Quirky, Profound, Masterful, Intelligent

See it if you want to be taken on a beautiful otherworldly journey.

Don't see it if you have a preconceived notion of how a play is supposed to work.

May 18th, 2017

“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.”

Theatre is Easy

“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.”
