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.

"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."
