Told from two perspectives with distinct narratives, Hanging Cow Productions' new play examines a couple's relationship and the aftermath of a secret revealed. More…
Though newly engaged couple Nate and Gemini share an intense love for each other, they are also nervous about their impending nuptials, but for different reasons. On the eve of Nate's 30th birthday during a dinner party, a complicated secret is revealed. Not only must Gemini and Nate navigate through their hopes, fears, and insecurities, but their close friends must, too. Everyone is forced to take an honest and raw look at what they really want and who they really are, ultimately learning that perception is completely subjective, ever-changing, and unique for each individual.
See it if you are looking for a well rounded and interesting play with a good twist that is boldly presented in a unique fashion, layered and relevant
Don't see it if you don't want to leave the theater thinking about your own life and relationships!
See it if You like your characters to go deep with their conversations, and you want something to talk about after the show!
Don't see it if You don't like to watch people making out or if you like Hollywood endings
See it if You can appreciate a new original story, with deep, thought-provoking themes.
Don't see it if you can't give the actors the benefit of the doubt. They are all very new and raw, but show lots of promise.
See it if Interesting look at relationships. Good monologues and I left talking about the show and analyzing it. Good acting. Left me thinking.
Don't see it if A little confusing and slow at times.
See it if you are interested in productions with developmental potential. The cast works hard with an uneven, sometimes incomprehensible script.
Don't see it if the title leads you to expect a magic show. There is no magic here on any level. The author's salacious concepts fail to be sexy or amusing.
See it if you enjoy actors learning their craft. Had potential to be quite good.
Don't see it if ..........read the Playbill to gain a perspective of the setting to better understand what is going on.
See it if you can appreciate actors and a writer in NYC trying to do theater on a shoe string, & if you can cut them some slack for at least trying.
Don't see it if if you're expecting professionally polished writing, professional looking sets, if you can't separate acting skills from the weak script.
See it if You want to support actors starting out. Second half picks up slightly & ending is a surprise.
Don't see it if You expect Bway quality show. Bad theatre & acoustics. Not actors fault, they are learning craft. Great potential for them in future.
See it if You haven't seen Rashomon & don't mind sitting through an unfocused, unclear, at times lecturing, rumination on individual truth & reality.
Don't see it if You bore easily; or, if seated House Left, want a clear view of actors completely blocked by a prop computer screen for all of Act 1.
See it if You feel like seeing a short play & do what I did for the 1st time (had to happen sometime!), & leave at intermission. Horrible & pointless
Don't see it if You'll get ticked off at the playwright/producer/director person behind this for ruining any prospective theatergoers experience of theater
See it if If you like character dramas or dialogue heavy pieces. It has an interesting premise with a unique presentation
Don't see it if Both scenes in each act retread the same ground. Felt redundant. There is no resolution to the conflict, which comes to a head at the end
See it if You don't mind cliches and uneven acting to get a few bits of truth. You appreciate neat ideas even if not superbly executed
Don't see it if You want something paradigm shifting, very polished, or grand. Or if you don't like theaters is weird spaces
See it if you want to help support starting actors and a different take on relationships
Don't see it if you want a polished show; actors consistently flubbed lines and were not convincing in roles
See it if you like seeing things from two perspectives, you don't mind seeing the same scene acted over twice with few changes (1st act)
Don't see it if Don't like seeing things over twice. You don't want to be subjected to speeches about order/chaos the rules of society...
See it if you don't have to pay for your ticket and you want to support a little theater company that obviously put a lot of time and effort into it.
Don't see it if you value your time and you are bothered by writing that needs to be edited, uneven acting, horrific blocking and laughably flimsy sets.
See it if you can overlook mediocre acting and sometimes tedious script to find a few thought-provoking ideas.
Don't see it if you have no tolerance for over-thought and drawn out theatrics. While the idea of the show has promise, it was not ready for "prime time".
See it if as was pointed out, you need the bad to appreciate the good. Danielle Barrett was a bright spot. Denzel Lloyd Williams equipped himself well
Don't see it if you demand polished productions. The transitions between acts were needlessly awkward, especially when you've seen more done with less.
