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 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 enjoy stream of consciousness theater in which we are privy to a character’s every thought. Javier Munoz does as much as possible w/it.
Don't see it if you find knowing someone every thought in the process of their journey someone cumbersome and dull.
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 You appreciate the use of language, literature, science and references to time. You like one-actor shows. Have patience for a new script.
Don't see it if Don't like thinking about time, space, meaning, and life's existential questions. Need a linear, straightforward storyline.
See it if Great performance by Munoz. Starts strong, lots of interesting themes/ideas. Some parts were great but writer unable to sustain greatness.
Don't see it if you don't like 1 person monologue or plays dealing with heavy themes. Gets muddled in 2nd half, felt like too much was thrown in.
See it if up for a bravura solo performance making you think about life—its meaning & how you navigate it. Charismatic actor w/ a Robin Williams vibe.
Don't see it if need lots of visual & audio stimulation, tighter script, upbeat fare: bare set, few props, stream of consciousness flow. Drags toward end.
See it if you enjoy solo shows, Javier Munoz, or a theme of life's existential questions, and usage of literature and science.
Don't see it if you don't enjoy solo shows, complex characters, or thought provoking themes.
See it if the man navigates through life changes big & small with penetrating intelligence.He balances the personal and the universal with wit & grit
Don't see it if you are expecting a big production or a comedy.
See it if You’d enjoy a 1-man show so full of grief & loss & poetry & joi de vivre that you can’t sort it out.
Don't see it if You dislike 1-man shows, want direction, clear drama, linear plot or music or a finished & straightforward play.

Don't see it if you're looking for a comedy; if you don't enjoy a one-man show
See it if You like intense drama and stories that build over time. This play is a wonderful production that makes you think. Well worth your time.
Don't see it if You are not keen on one person plays or have some sensitivity to sickness and death.
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 literary allusions and a look into how individuals cope with grief. Javier Munoz is so earnest & likable & he even sings briefly
Don't see it if You can’t stand 90 minute monologue - hard to feel grief when audience never meets lost character; Munoz works hard but let down by material
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 You like daring one-man shows which explore life sideways through contemplative musings about physics, literature, relationships love & loss
Don't see it if You prefer more upbeat plays unlike this exploring a man's life crisis & mental journey brought on by the loss of his young child to cancer.
See it if You would appreciate a heavily philosophically based one man performance with minimalist staging.
Don't see it if You want to see an uplifting ensemble piece or have difficulty deciphering metaphors.
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.
