See it if If you like puppetry, comedy to resonate for serious subjects. Good direction and excellent puppetry.

Don't see it if If you need a show that brings finality. A non confusing, laid out complete written play.

Enchanting, Delightful, Clever, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if You like science fiction and shows that are a bit quirky, out of the box presentation wise. This is beautiful extraordinary storytelling.

Don't see it if You can’t be a little patient to let the full premise/experience of this show bloom. It takes a minute to grasp what they’re saying/doing.

Intense, Great puppetry, Dark, dark, dark

See it if you are interested apocalyptic plays steeped in " progressivism".

Don't see it if the fact that progressivism can never escape from its fundamentalist, Christian roots makes a play difficult to watch Read more

Confusing, Disappointing, Funny, Enchanting, Clever

See it if you like puppets in a very avant-garde fanciful and creative story that is both intriguing and confusing. I enjoyed it, but I have questions

Don't see it if you need to fully understand what's going on to enjoy fine puppetry done by an expert team.

“This is perhaps the goriest, most violent show currently playing off-Broadway. It's really not a children's show...’The Immortal Jellyfish Girl’ is here to remind us that nothing is forever, and none of us will likely be around to witness what comes next.”
