Clever, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Quirky, Engaging

See it if you like one-man shows. Ben is smart and is his show which he wrote/performs. Why don't we talk about $$$? It's an impt topic!

Don't see it if you feel uncomfortable w hearing the actor's problems. But ending must be ok, since he's there. I liked BWM almost as much as Patti Issues.

Also I'm catching up on some reviews that I overlooked. It's fun to re-visi... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Personal, Cabaret setting

See it if you can relate to NYC money issues - what average New Yorker can't? - and you're up for a painfully personal monologue in a cabaret setting

Don't see it if if addictions, neuroses and really self-loathing decisions turn you off, or you don't like one man shows with a two drink minimum.

Funny, Thought-provoking, Profound, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if You like a one-man show in an intimate setting. This was a very courageous show to write. Maybe you don't relate to the "details"

Don't see it if You don't like shows or stories that are one person's story. It was a very personal journey that the writer is still on.

Absorbing, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Ambitious

for a previous production "There was nothing moving in the evening. I was not convinced that any real change had taken place. It seemed like an indulgent detached 'drunkalogue' more appropriate in a meeting room than a theater...Nevertheless he received healthy applause at the end of the show. I wasn’t sure whether peopl...

for a previous production "While Rimalower again brings wit and humor to the story, the tone here is a bit more shaded and muted. 'Bad with Money' isn’t as quite as breathlessly entertaining as 'Patti Issues'. Neither does it have any particularly deep insights into the consumer culture. This isn’t a huge problem, and in ...
