See it if you wish to support fringe theater; looking for fast-paced dialog.
Don't see it if frustrated with authors who, for the sake of fast dialog, throw everything in so characters come-off having no believable inner track.
See it if Like good storyline. Like thought provoking theater. Like to talk about your take on the writers message. Like to find Fringe "gems".
Don't see it if Can't think through the underlying messages of a writer. Have no interest in art--even though the message is bigger than art.
See it if You're interested in visual arts or part of that scene, or if you're queasy about the growing role of technology in all aspects of our lives
Don't see it if You have no patience for scenes that are a bit too drawn out for the point they're getting across
See it if You like thematically bold, intelligent challenging theater.
Don't see it if You just want to laugh, or prefer the usual NYC theater staple of middle class couples with relationship problems.
See it if you want some thoughtful takes on a difficult question of what art - and popular art - means. Acting can be great at times.
Don't see it if you want a strong and clear resolution of the question, or even of the story arc. Still worth seeing, though.
See it if You're looking for a "portrait of an artist" show starring two white men fighting over a very simple plot.
Don't see it if You're looking for anything that answers the question: "is creativity uniquely human?". It resists change instead of exploring it.
