Clever, Disappointing

See it if you want well acted theater by good cast

Don't see it if depth in a story that either demands it or must bow to "fate"

Confusing, Edgy, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Funny

See it if You like watching young actors wrestle with big feelings.

Don't see it if You don't like your theater crass.

Ambitious, Funny, Clever, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you appreciate parodies or mashups of mythology in a modern context, like ensemble based theatrics with narrative movement to support text.

Don't see it if you are easily offended by strong language, nudity or stylized simulation of sex.

Entertaining, Quirky, Great staging, Absorbing, Clever

See it if You want to see a show with great staging, a talented cast, and ladies with teeth.

Don't see it if You can't take nudity and/or vulgarity

Original, Raunchy, Funny, Confusing, Quirky

See it if you like Greek mythology, you like characters breaking the fourth wall, or you like talking crabs.

Don't see it if you have strong aversions to foul language or female nudity, are bored by Greek mythos, or want straight-forward storytelling.


See it if You want to laugh, support young/developing actors, but also are ok to take in over-dramatization.

Don't see it if If you expecting a fully developed professional play.

Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting

See it if Great love story

Don't see it if Great show. A must see for all

Clever, Confusing, Indulgent, Ambitious, Quirky

See it if You enjoy parodies of ancient mythology.

Don't see it if Parodies of ancient myths are not your thing.

Theatre is Easy
August 19th, 2016

"Miller's writing is honest, though it occasionally overuses 'fuck' instead of going after some more meaningful dialogue...Wigglesworth’s direction is surprisingly conventional and can move slowly...'Ariadne' wants to be dirtier than it is...I do dig what The Cutout Theatre is trying to do. Their truthful, no bullshit mission is spot-on to unlock some quality storytelling. I’m curious to see what that means outside the confines of Fringe."
