Broadway’s Javier Muñoz ("Hamilton," "In The Heights") stars in this new solo piece, an epic theatrical exploration of life, loss, hope, and time. More…
From the show:
At a personal and professional crossroads, a man becomes a Stop/Slow traffic controller outside a construction site in an effort to catch his breath and simplify his life. With his wit and vivid imagination, he invokes Shakespeare, Einstein and more visionaries on his emotional odyssey. Though he tries valiantly to distract himself from the pains in his present from his recent past, it’s through the saving grace of time that he reclaims his future.
Join him for his entertaining and soulful investigation of life’s meaning in an uncertain world. Part joyous comedy, part thoughtful tragedy… it is the entirety of life in 95 minutes.
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.
See it if You want to get the warm fuzzies from Javier Muñoz.
Don't see it if You want something fresh. This was quite predictable (with one or two clever moments), not artistically or thematically challenging.
See it if U enjoy great acting in a nonlinear solo play that is funny, quirky, philosophical and thought provoking.
Don't see it if U don’t like solo performances, nonlinear plays or prefer musicals
See it if You enjoy intelligent writing that has you thinking. I loved it. Saw it with understudy— he was very good! Intelligent all around.
Don't see it if You do not like to think or if you do not like solo performances.
See it if you are a fan of Muñoz and enjoy very intimate, single performer experiences. There are somber moments and a confusing jump in space & time.
Don't see it if a monologue about working through grief and loss might be upsetting or if you don't enjoy someone essentially speaking at you for 80 minutes
See it if Life. Death. Slow. Stop. How do u deal with the death n the loss of a young child? If one can write, he put it in a play. Kudos to J Munoz.
Don't see it if If dealing with death and a lost soul is too much a subject. If watching a well-acted one-man Show for 90 minutes is too much a commitment.
See it if like thoughtful explorations of fate and existence, well-acted solo shows
Don't see it if don't want to dwell on death, loss, self-analysis, do-overs and philosophical examinations. Breaks 4th wall.
See it if a well-crafted, mathy, exploration of every existential issue by one grieving man sounds interesting. Muniz of Hamilton is riveting!
Don't see it if fast-paced, heady monologues pain you.
See it if you like a one man thought provoking show that showcases the amazing talent of Javier Munoz. His facial expressions are everything!
Don't see it if If you don’t like black box theatre that is somewhat talky and a bit confusing at times.
See it if you want to see a man work through the grief in his life.
Don't see it if you want a well-crafted play. This starts out promising, but is confusing.
See it if You are a fan of solo performer type shows. You want to see a different side of Javier Munoz.
Don't see it if You have a hard time following a lot of dialogue from one character. You are not into existential thinking.
See it if you want to track the journey of a man's withdrawal from life after a family tragedy. Javier Munoz is charming and heartfelt.
Don't see it if you don't have patience for digressions into the world of physics, mathematics and the convergence of time and tragedy.
See it if you enjoy one-man shows, stream of consciousness, quantum physics, philosophy, and Shakespeare
Don't see it if you are bored by stream of consciousness, or would prefer to see a flashy production
See it if You want to see a great actor do an outstanding job with a so-so script. Great lighting helps make this more interesting to watch.
Don't see it if You want a fully formed, rounded out piece of work. I think it’s clear what the playwright was trying to say but his use of metaphors trips.
Also Some moments of this are exquisite but as a whole...swing and a miss.
See it if Bless the heart of the charismatic Munoz as he vainly tries to keep us interested in this agitated tale of grief over his child's death
Don't see it if Overwrought, overwritten & overly indulgent this drama of the 'nature of the universe' veers too far from its potent & powerful tale of loss
See it if you enjoy one man shows with information that make you think - here an energetic performance by a solid actor with some visual projections.
Don't see it if you don't like shows that resemble a 90 minute lecture w/ a few props and PowerPoint-like projections or you are bothered by flashing lights
See it if you enjoy tour de force solo plays. A highly educated man devastated by life philosophizes to himself & the audience about ways to survive
Don't see it if death is a triggering issue. It is the central theme of the play. Also this is 90 minutes with one character so consider your fidget factor.
See it if Self-effacing everyman retreats from fields of physics&philosophy to reflect "I'm wearing reflective gear" on painful past.Flip-sign&thought
Don't see it if Boson particle."What forces came to people people I love to leave me?/Tranquility is underrated/Epiphanies are overrated/ About emptiness"
