About the show

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.

Also This was so disappointing. The first 1/4 was promising. The first half... Read more Read less

"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."
