Slow, Relevant, Ambitious, Great acting, Funny

See it if Honestly, I’m glad I didn’t go (or not go) based on the “Show-Score” average; it was actually quite good. The acting, especially the “Raheem

Don't see it if Reynolds” character, was quite good. The main acting issue was the lowness of the British actress’s tone, especially with the AC on, but,

Also Overall, this small black box theatre 🎭 play hit the points of racism, Trump, politics, domestic violence , #MeToo, pay equality, immigration, gun control, etc. This seems like a lot in 2 hours, but, because of the radio 📻 show format- it worked. It’s obviously anti-Trump, however, there are -(voiceover) callers, who are pro-Trump, so it’s not just one-sides and too preachy.

Relevant, Ambitious, Slow, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like anti-trump banter, small productions with a wonderful female lead. I hope to see her in another play.

Don't see it if You like large productions with decent sets. You saw the stage drape open and the door to the venue opened often letting in bright light.

Also Play could have been 1/2 hour shorter. Loved the female lead.

Disappointing, Absorbing, Entertaining, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if I enjoyed the character development in this play and the humor and joy brought to the stage. A story with a happy ending.

Don't see it if This play is disappointed me with how “simply” they resolved the conflicts. It needs to deal with the complexity of life - not simplify it.

Cliched, Quirky, Relevant, Slow, Entertaining

See it if you'd enjoy watching radio hosts and their incompetent general manager deal with the issues of the day, conservative, liberal, sexism, etc.

Don't see it if you want a solid presentation. This is a step above workshop level and needs some refinement of the script and could use a better set.

Relevant, Ambitious

See it if You Want to take a look at the current political climate in the US from a talk radio prospective. The play’s premise is interesting.

Don't see it if This is a workshop piece that needs work. The script and stage direction was a bit disjointed.
