Fantasy, Refreshing, Great writing, Great acting, Clever

See it if A Luddite-lite woman is offered options to time-transport in a fantastical romantic comedy. Accept the suspension-of-belief circumstances.

Don't see it if Tiny,cramped venue subverts the whimsy of expansive time-transport.Appealing actors remind that the tech world can't offer a lost simplicity

Disappointing, Slow, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you like cute shows about time travel.2 older actors were excellent;3 young ones weren't as good as they should have been. Amusing script

Don't see it if you want something with substance.It's 80 minutes, entertaining, and mildly interesting.

Cliched, Slow

See it if You want to watch capable actors struggle through this.

Don't see it if You're not interested in a cliched time-travel love story filled with cringey puns.

Sometimes slow, Delightful, Great acting, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if Show about everything:love, feminism, gadgets, where is our place on life and how not to miss your lucky chance. Nice costumes

Don't see it if Today was the last day for performance, so no need to say anything bad

Fluffy, Cliched, Cute

See it if a time travel rom com that is a bit superficial and fluffy but still entertaining

Don't see it if you don't want to suspend disbelieve about time travel and see a small, simple production

Slow, Disappointing

See it if Is it a time-travelling romance? An epic sweep on American feminism? A satiric look at the encroachment of tech on our lives? Sort of.

Don't see it if You like solid, smart, original, well-constructed plays - this was not.

Great acting, Entertaining, Funny, Delightful, Clever

See it if You're in the mood for a fun and funny romcom about the modern world and a few worlds before it.

Don't see it if You don't like fanciful comedy.

"TECH SUPPORT at 59E59 Theaters – A Unique Show that Entertains and Charms"

"Debra Whitfield's 'Tech Support' offers a clever idea in order to review feminism in the past century. Unfortunately, her rather superficial approach misses a great many opportunities. The romantic comedy aspect of the play is not entirely believable and works to the detriment of the play's serious."

Theatre is Easy
September 4th, 2019

"If 'Tech Support' rests on a preposterously thin premise, suspension of logic is possible when the writing is tight, inventive, and clever. Sadly, the script by Debra Whitfield (who also directs) boasts none of these qualities, and is instead clichéd, predictable, and heavy-handed."

"Throughout this endeavor, Ms. Whitfield piles one cliché atop another, fails to provide any satisfactory humor, and corrals actors into prolonged dance sequences...'Tech Support' - despite its well qualified and talented cast - barely rises above the rigorous and well-established standards for community theater."

Theatre's Leiter Side
September 5th, 2019

"A mediocre time-traveling comedy…The goal: to satirize changing fashions, language, mores, and the onslaught of progress…Unlike Mark Twain's…'A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court,' the playwright is unable to milk the comedy for meaningful laughs."
