From the show:
Missing almonds, empty apologies, and a pizza box in the recycling bin that clearly belongs in the trash. When space is at a premium, there’s no room for weak links. The Commons is a play about living with strangers and the things that seem small, until they aren’t.
Following their critically acclaimed New York Times Critic’s Pick production of Athena in 2018, The Hearth continue their commitment to nurturing the next generation of female artists with this world premiere play.
See it if you want a sense of the joys & (mostly) woes of apartment-sharing in contemporary NYC.
Don't see it if you are looking for a broad statement about the human condition: This play is very narrow in its focus.
See it if Quite funny, entertaining and relevant for many who live or ever lived with roommates (or family!). Well done.
Don't see it if you want a big broadway show. This is a very intimate theater and a simple story. Staging could be better, actors often have back to you.
See it if you have ever lived with roommates; or even a spouse! You like comedy/drama based on realistic situations to which we all can relate
Don't see it if you are annoyed by young people and their real or imagined dramas; you prefer musicals or dysfunctional family situations.
See it if you want to see a story about four young adults living together and the conflicts that naturally come from being roommates.
Don't see it if you want three-dimensional, engaging characters and a story with a plot. This story is mainly about characters whining about minor problems.
