Amateurish, Grating, Plotless, Humorless, Disappointing

See it if you enjoy bad kiddie theater w/swearing. "Let's go on an adventure to find the key to open all the doors closed to you." Horrible script.

Don't see it if you want insights, plot, coherence, good acting, humor, imaginative staging. You'll find only endless drivel. When 2 left, I followed. Read more

Life changing, Delightful, Great acting, Profound, Quirky

See it if You need a sign from The Universe about getting your life back on track but in a totally fun, funny, WEIRD (but still totally coherent) way.

Don't see it if You can't think outside the box or think you've got it all together.

Clever, Quirky, Edgy, Indulgent, Cliched

See it if Addict takes a hallucinogen and goes on a big trip. First two thirds of the show has some creative, humorous scenes.

Don't see it if Last third of the show is preachy and dull. Overall message is obvious. The character learns something but the audience does not.

Great acting, Intense, Quirky

See it if You are curious about what an acid trip feels like.

Don't see it if You need a logical story with a plot.

Dizzying, Quirky, Resonant, Thought-provoking, Great acting

See it if you like minimalist offbeat (but intelligent) works that make you think; you like a lot of weird to end up with a satisfying end result.

Don't see it if you are offended by swearing and drug use, you like traditional theater or elaborate staging, you want a lighthearted night out.

Edgy, Great acting

See it if you want to know what an acid trip feels like or relive one. Great tour de force performance by the lead actor

Don't see it if if acid trips don't interest you. Read more

Great acting, Entertaining, Edgy, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you want a peek into the alternative world / perception of a person tripping on drugs - at least one creative funny & scary version of it.

Don't see it if you do not like alternative theater or alternative realities- but sometimes, an outside the box theater and storytelling could be enjoyable.

Banal, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if Portraying an acid trip shouldn't give cover for a playwright to pen random, nonsensical scenes, but this one was clearly mistaken. Skip it.

Don't see it if Yes, Show-Score is crowd-sourced, yet there are too many shills in the midst who should be ashamed of themselves. Don't waste our time & $. Read more
