Avg Score

Slow, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You know someone in the show. I wanted to like it and knew it was "off off broadway," but it felt further "off" than that.

Don't see it if I can't recommend this play. Left at intermission so maybe I missed something, but I couldn't bring myself to stay & see what that might be

Disappointing, Dizzying, Indulgent, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if You enjoy afternoon soap opera ish plays. You prefer shows with lots of dialogue and little action.

Don't see it if You are offended or uncomfortable with lesbian love scenes portrayed unsubtly. You don’t like plays that use death as a theme.

Quirky, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if Exposition during funeral, development in apartment, and weird deus ex machina ending turns plot on its head. Dialogue forced and preachy.

Don't see it if You don't want to hear trite platitudes about life and relationships. You don't like unnecessary coarse language and sex on stage

Clever, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see a slightly unusual plot that keeps you entertained.

Don't see it if You want an exciting plot or can't sit through 2 hours.

Also This was one of the better off-off Broadway plays I've seen recently. ... Read more Read less

Unmemorable, Well staged, Good acting, Long

See it if Liked the twist @ the end; good repertory company. Actors had good chemistry together.

Don't see it if This is another play that could use critical editing. By the time the twist came most were squirming in their seats to leave.

Intelligent, Profound, Thought-provoking, Indulgent, Ambitious

See it if You like stories dealing with the boundaries of friendship, love and attraction.

Don't see it if This play will make you think about how drug abuse and suicide has affected your own life.

Absorbing, Great writing, Intense, Romantic

See it if Attention holder, intense drama with funny moments.. the cast is equity level quality and they had a solid script

Don't see it if You want serious answers- a Longer show but u didn’t notice til The end
