Conceived and directed by veteran theater maker Anne Bogart.
See it if you have patience for art-speak drivel that has pretensions to grandeur but is empty of meaning. Full of erudite references to nothing.
Don't see it if you expect insightful writing, character development, relevance and meaning. You are looking for an intermission to escape.
See it if You enjoy watching actors make toast, drink coffee, play chess, and talk nonsense for 90 minutes. Trouble falling asleep? Not at this show!
Don't see it if You want to see a play that's about something. This was about NOTHING! 90 minutes of my life gone forever!
See it if You are willing to spend 90 minutes watching two actors play chess while pretending to talk about philosophical and obscure concepts.
Don't see it if You don't like pretentious theater that tries ( and fails ) to be " avant-garde " and challenging. This is a boring and inert production.
See it if you enjoy pretentious "avant garde" performances which are thought provoking for some.
Don't see it if you are a fan of John Cage. Do not like pretentious plays that seem like they go on and on and on for ever. This play was a long 2 hours.
See it if You hate yourself. Seeing this was the worst experience I have ever had at the theatre
Don't see it if You value your eyesight. My wife and I could not watch this show because the lighting made our eyes hurt so much we had to close them.
