Thought-provoking, Riveting, Absorbing, Intelligent

See it if Actually a must see. An unbelievably convincing argument for some “progressive” ideas. Although you may or my not agree with the conclusions

Don't see it if You don’t like one person shows that make you think intensely.

Cerebral, Thought-provoking, Great acting, Intense

See it if U want to really think about ur place (& how lucky u r) in the world. V well acted. A thought piece; an intense ride thru a (poss) last nite

Don't see it if A one person show. No action. Cerebral. No "excitement " but big payoffs if you listen closely.

Brainy, Mesmerizing, Captivating

See it if Beloved TV/film Lili Taylor’s voice, brainy Wallace Shawn’s down-the-rabbit-hole monologue of Joyceian self-analysis & morality fulfill you

Don't see it if 90min no intermission talking head weaving non-linear fractals & threads of memory, modernism, meditation, monkey-mind may not be for you.

Riveting, Profound, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if A. Lili Taylor is incredible. B. The play limns the irresistible attraction of privilege against immovable forces of poverty and evil.

Don't see it if It's heavy, man. There's no resolution for the character or the issues. As Jesus said: "The [oppressed] you shall always have with you.

"The play contemplates the shame of feeling guilty about the world’s suffering. However, at the end of 90 minutes, viewers come away knowing there is little we can do to change if we only observe the plight, like the character."

"About 60 minutes in, I began to tire of this gratuitous account of one person's self-awakening, heartfelt though it is. I'm glad they've come to terms with some hard stuff, but 90 minutes is just too long for this sort of thing."
