Disappointing, Confusing, Slow, Cliched, Banal

See it if you want to support new work by a well meaning troupe. There are some good spots but not enough to hold it together.

Don't see it if you want a sensible who-done-it. Too much does not add up well and it easily loses the audience.

Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if You like old fashioned mysteries.

Don't see it if You’re looking for a deep story.

Disappointing, Weak acting, Weak script, Cliched, Banal

See it if you enjoy seeing new plays and want to support a company that produces them.

Don't see it if you're expecting a noir mystery. I THINK that's what was intended, but the script really doesn't pull that off. You expect good acting. Read more

Dull

See it if U don't know the Rbt Durst/Susan Berman story & want to see it acted out.This is just a rehash w/a couple xtra characters & a bit of fiction

Don't see it if Why is this not described as a fictionalized version of a true story?Acting mediocre, writing not very good,totally unbelievable scenarios Read more

Solid turn by working actors, Not particularly interesting, Unoriginal

See it if To support the cast or if you particularly enjoy linear plot - true crime genre

Don't see it if You are looking for an original story or strong drama. Shortly into the play my friend pointed out that it's R. Durst / S. Berman story.

Cliched, Banal

See it if I like a good mystery but this did not work for me...script needs work.

Don't see it if you want a noir mystery feel with substance.

Amateurish, Melodramatic, Noirish, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy mysteries and crime stories. At eighty minutes, it’s brief and diverting enough.

Don't see it if You’re expecting an innovative or memorable night of theater. The acting is often over the top. There’s one very far-fetched plot twist. Read more

57
Slow, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if It's not super well acted or written. It's a bit confusing and relies a lot on coincidence and magical events to move the plot forward.

Don't see it if You have anything else to do. This is not a fun night. It's 80 min that feels like 2 hours.
