See it if Excellent acting in this one-man show. He makes eye contact with many audience members & is very energetic.
Don't see it if Show drags in many spots (1hr35min) & could use a good 20min trim. A bit too much rambling when the same point could have been made quicker.
See it if You didn't see Hamilton and you really, really want to see someone who was in the second Broadway cast.
Don't see it if You aren't a fan of indulgent shows that have already been done a billion times before. Or one-man shows. Or shows about time.
"The World Ends Not With a Bang but a Whimper in 'A Sign of the Times'"
From Founding Father to foundering father, Javier Muñoz takes on death, life's meaning, and the universe in a new solo show."
"We never get a clear picture of the family's unraveling -- their apparently idyllic past remains largely a blank -- because Helper is too busy spinning out big-picture musings to focus on the tragedy at the play's heart… From so much straining for significance, you can get exhausted."
"This metaphysical monologue of a play is most fortunate in having the skillful and charming Javier Muñoz on deck as solo performer."
Score: 79%. ""How daunting life can be," but with Javier Muñoz as my guide, it can't be a bad trip."
"It's a script that could charitably be called overambitious; less charitably, pretentious. In stuffing in so many digressions and name-drops, the monologue loses focus…Muñoz is an asset to this production. He has an affable presence, and his heart is clearly in the role."
