Thought-provoking, Quirky, Entertaining, Edgy, Slow

See it if you enjoy a work with potential that needs tightening up performed by a good cast that mostly interact quite well - it's a different family!

Don't see it if you want a polished play on the subject of work relationships: it's a bit long, with many scene changes in a loft in which the sound bounces

Ok venue / stagnant set + wall projection(s), Potential (w/better casting), Very funny yet annoying, Ambitious book / bit absurd, Weird staging / lacks directorial hand

See it if you want to experience 5 characters try to figure out why am I here, what am I good at, what's really important, who is really 'my family'?

Don't see it if you prefer major productions in a real theater-setting, w/masterful performances (it's a loft on 14th, w/uncomfortable 2-tiered seating). Read more
