Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Great staging

See it if You are open to be entertained by some very good performers dealing with situations. You want to see good work in a small space done well.

Don't see it if You are not open to something different. You don't want to see an interesting, different type of performance.

Ambitious, Great staging, Great acting, Engaging, Confusing

See it if you like a hodge podge of short plays about relationships ...some funny, some sad, some hits & some not (like the video clips between acts).

Don't see it if you don't like community theater ... although caters a small audience- the staging is effective, the actors talented, & the plays engaging.

Relevant, Ambitious, Entertaining

See it if you want a glimpse into the lives of many different characters and their relationships with equal parts humor and thought provoking moments

Don't see it if you want a linear, plotted story - this is a show of short, sometimes-connected vignettes

Relevant, Edgy, Ambitious, Long

See it if interested in episodes of real life issues. Topics were well chosen, writing and acting were fine for most parts. Second half was better.

Don't see it if you prefer shows with one story-line. The biggest negative was the four films. They made the show too long, and were terrible. Not fitting.

Ambitious, Long

See it if you like short, well written acts between 2 actors. Casting was not bad, improved by second part.

Don't see it if you hate long shows. Very confusing movies should be cut out.

Theatre is Easy
March 27th, 2018

"The live performances are much easier to engage with than the videos...Director Hazen Cuyler directs all the pieces with heart and care. I was perplexed, however, by his choice to include four additional flats in every scene, each carried on and held by an actor for the duration of the scene...Tangredi’s work is extremely original and not at all familiar. But because every piece is extremely serious, the program screams out for an innocuous premise and some lighthearted jokes."
