Theater In The Now

"A triple-header of fun…As Max, Steven Smith has great comic sensibility that seemed to channel the playwright himself. Smith stole the show, and the entire evening…'Crisis: Ocean Planet' was a tonally confused piece…The first week of the Black Box New Play Festival 2016 was an exciting evening showcasing a fresh talent and a unique voice. If you don't know who Brett Epstein is, you should crawl out from under your rock and get educated. It's a name you'll hear often." Full Review

Original, Banal, Entertaining, Fast-paced, Multiple plays

See it if You like multiple one-act plays from new playwrights. Hit or miss, in terms of story line or acting.

Don't see it if You only want to see a good full size play, this can be a mixed bag since the plays are original plays by fairly new playwrights.
