Indulgent, Fluffy, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if If you want 5 one act plays. Two are good, three are fair at best. Some good acting and direction but not a great evening.

Don't see it if If you dont want various one acts that have different topics and subjects. A musical suits you better.

Innovative, Engaged, Contemporary, Savage

See it if you would like to see what a cross-section of young playwrights is up to.

Don't see it if you’re looking for the kind of resolution that can only come with a long play. Read more

The New York Times

"As memorable as isolated moments can be, however, 'Jesus in Manhattan' is too scattershot, the sum of its parts adding up to less than a satisfying whole...The other four plays in the omnibus function better as stand-alones. This does not automatically make them any good, mind you...Ms. Coxe’s awkward dance to Rod Stewart’s 'Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?' is the single funniest thing in the entire show — and eventually comedy gives way to sentimentality. It is not an upgrade."
