Disappointing, Great acting

See it if non-linear storytelling for the sake of non linear storytelling excites you

Don't see it if you want all of the writing to advance a tale.

Disappointing, Pedantic

See it if You like to ponder about the "meaning of theater". You can appreciate a good concept even when it isn't well executed.

Don't see it if You don't like being lectured and would prefer to learn by watching good storytelling.

Just not very good

See it if A great concept is all you need to be happy. This does have an interesting meta idea as its framework.

Don't see it if You have a need for writing that sounds like actual people talking, and action that makes any sense. The actors don't rise above the script.

Disappointing, Disconnected

See it if You want to see a show with an interesting grain of an idea with some potential that poses questions directly rather than revealing them.

Don't see it if You want a fully realized show that achieves what it attempts or likable/relatable characters.

Ambitious, Confusing, Dizzying, Quirky, Edgy

See it if If you like Ionesco or other absurdist comedy. If you don't like linear story telling and don't mind breaking the 4th wall.

Edgy, Great staging, Great acting, Quirky

See it if You're looking for something different, really different, and bizarre, really bizarre, yet at the same time coherent enough to follow.

Don't see it if You only like linear storytelling,and/or have problems with plays that break the fourth wall

September 8th, 2016

"The script is billed as an 'existentialist comedy about three spiritually disconnected people.' That’s an accurate description, suggesting that this is a play of ideas. Unfortunately there are so many that it becomes, at times, a confusing mess...All three actors bring welcome touches of reality to this fever dream of a night...By the end, the script comes off as a pint-sized 'No Exit.' It is hard to take cosmic concerns seriously through the prism of theater."
