This imaginative Off-Broadway premiere about a children's book author explores the power and the cost of creativity. Starring Dan Lauria ('The Wonder Years.') More…
Extraordinary art must be tamed. Simon Grindberg is the world’s most illustrious children’s book writer and illustrator —but his next masterpiece is a decade overdue. Peter Chandler is a starving artist with unparalleled potential—but he doesn’t yet know his own value. The two men are thrown together by Clair Forlorni, an ambitious editor who hopes Peter’s youthful exuberance can unleash Simon’s aging genius for one final story.
See it if For no reason unless you love Dan Lauria... it’s a truly badly written and poorly acted piece of theatre. I almost left: intermissionless
Don't see it if Just don’t... it’s not very good at all
See it if you enjoy the merging of fantasy and realism, appreciate a beautiful set, and can stand some meaningless plot lines & cliched dialogue
Don't see it if you want to see a well-written show. A few things fall short here
See it if great big, showy roles for veteran actors can be rare and this show offers one (Dan Lauria here, Judd Hirsch in its out-of-town premiere).
Don't see it if it's really never been clear, in both times I've now seen this script, what it's trying to say about art and about balancing art with life.
See it if you are a fan of The Wonder Years because the guy who played Kevin’s father is in it. You like slow moving productions.
Don't see it if You are looking for something with solid acting, an interesting plot, and will leave you thinking/inspired.
See it if You’re a fan of Dan Lauria, because he’s the best (and only) good part of the show.
Don't see it if You have any self worth. This show was too long even at an intermissionless 90ish, minutes and made no sense.
