See it if you know the author or actors, if you want a 6 Characters in Search of an Author experience or want to see skilled actors heighten material
Don't see it if you want linear development, the lights to stay on, & all your questions about the play answered
See it if you're supportive friends/family. I confirm critic DavidRoberts' Show-Score of 45 & a weary audience denied an interesting story, well-told
Don't see it if You'd rather be outside sweating. Cool AC here, but no smartly-developed characters to care about in a coherent story that moved me.
"'Anonymous Anonymous' is a puzzle of a play...Sofge’s play has an autobiographic feel to it. There are some moments that are loopy and amusing. Others are somber and almost brought me to tears. Sofge’s work has terrific ideas, but they are confusing and muddled...While initially intriguing, it's easy to get lost while trying to follow, or even construct, the timeline, and to figure out where, and when, Dan/Steve is at various points."
“Once the audience is in on the ‘trick’-which occurs early on in the play-they begin to grow weary and, despite Mr. Sofge’s apparent lack of interest in dramatic arcs, fourth walls, and cathartic resolutions, the audience begins to beg for a bit of a decent dénouement...To his credit, Mr. Sofge has created interesting characters...Under Mr. Sofge’s and Michael Melkovic’s direction, the ensemble cast does its best to pull the whole thing off and are convincing.”
