Clever, Intriguing, Sui generis

See it if You enjoy a very broad concept of theater. This intimate interactive story sneaks up on you to be more than a fun story with free beer.

Don't see it if You need a proscenium, don't want to be personally involved, and don't see any value in punk rock.

See it if you love punk rock and talking/thinking about how music influences you, you like intimate performance

Don't see it if you want a performance that's not from the POV of a young white man and an older white man

"Then comes the story, which Mr. Lynn rattles off in mile-a-minute haste and a confident actor’s control of the audience...As directed by Shaw, the story, captivating and sad and beautifully delivered, is leavened by its pacing and its charmingly low-tech special effects. But I couldn’t help feeling, as I have with other Rude Mechs productions, that the deliberately anti-theatrical mode of presentation has uncoupled itself from the powerful theme the show seeks to dramatize."
