Insipid, Slow, Quirky, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a large cast, in a long production, giving it a go to be entertaining on issues of the art world. Some good moments.

Don't see it if you want a well edited and acted play. There are good elements here in need of refinement. Most acting more suited to screen than stage.

Slow

See it if A few funny moments where the art dealer thinks the crap "art" is worth paying top-dollar for.

Don't see it if But most of the 2 hours 15 minutes drags big time, many walkouts at intermission, many yawns. Desperate need of severe editing.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Needs editing, Slow, Disappointing

See it if You don’t mind seeing a show that is really still not ready for prime time ! You enjoy satire, especially when it’s aimed at the A list !

Don't see it if Everything needs to be perfect for you to enjoy a play. You have no interest in the trials and tribulations of the world of modern art.

Absorbing, Slow, Relevant, Funny

See it if U like a story that mixes contemporary art world w/contemporary politics & society. Needs further editing, it’s 2 long & repetitive.

Don't see it if You’re impatient and looking for a fully developed play.

Quirky, Resonant, Entertaining, Clever

See it if Support smaller venues, enjoy a fun night out, see a satire on the A listers, can apprciate the absurd, can laugh at the absurd.

Don't see it if You don't like satire, need a fancy venue, don't like traveling downtown, aren't open to new experiences, expect a fancy set. Read more

Skewers an easy target for two hours, Cliched, Talky and uninvolving, Unimaginative, Paints itself into a corner

See it if you enjoy humor poking fun at wealthy art collectors; your pal is in the cast of SIXTEEN; you don't mind very uncomfortable chairs for 2 hrs

Don't see it if a talky play with limited scope will irk you; you prefer plays with characters you can relate to; you like comedies that deliver big laughs Read more
