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

"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."
