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 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 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 Munoz creates immediate interest with an ingratiating performance with both literary & scientific references that make you want to know more
Don't see it if As the play progresses, it becomes muddled with extraneous threads that confuse rather than clarify what went before. Missed opportunity!
See it if you want to see an extraordinary performance by JAVIER MUÑOZ You want to see a great 60-70 minute play.
Don't see it if a play that is great for 60 to 70 minutes and then is awful for 25 to 35
See it if A one man show dealing with hurt, loss and guilt. Munoz should settle in deeper. In previews he is still searching for the fit.
Don't see it if If you need an advanced plotline or multiple characters. This one man show takes too long to get where it's going. 90mins needs a 15min trim
See it if you enjoy thinky plays that are heavily existential and philosphical.
Don't see it if you have even the slightest trouble following non-linear storylines or thinking outside the box.
See it if there is a possibility that you'll like this experience, or at least appreciate the efforts, if you really want to see Javier Munoz.
Don't see it if you are easily irritated by vague, fleeting references to time, literature, physics.
