Ambitious, Relevant, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if Add wry, sardonic and pessimistic. But very well worth seeing for the writing alone. And in the weirdest little storefront theatre in NYC.

Don't see it if You don't like to think. You're very optimistic about the future. Problems? We got problems?

For a previous production

"Probably one of the best one-person shows that I’ve ever reviewed, both in terms of its performance and its concept...I was skeptical...whether Mr. Damiano could actually pull off a performance of each of these diverse characters...Yet I was easily proven wrong. The play does a very fine job at exploring the division in modern American society on a very human level, and Damiano seamlessly pulls off each of the four individual performances of the characters in his show."

For a previous production

"A window into the lives of four very different Americans, each with his own ideas about tranquility and prosperity...While the characters are often humorous, the perspectives they represent are all too real...Supporting these lofty themes is a truly impressive performance on the part of Mr. Damiano. Armed with a writer’s ear for capturing dialogue and an actor’s flair for delivery, he makes his characters impressively real and uniquely vibrant."
