Slow, Cliched, Indulgent

See it if you like YA novels and teenage angst. Also, the actor who plays Reese is great.

Don't see it if you want humor/levity in your theatre experience.

Theatre is Easy
August 19th, 2016

"'Die For Me' embarks on a shaky journey of half-explored themes of family and redemption. With the plot catapulting ahead so rapidly in such a different direction, there’s little time to reflect on why anything that is happening needs to be shown...Ness has, however, created a very special intimacy between Reese and Allie...Their sweet affection for one another grounds 'Die For Me' in an idea that is worth exploring even further."

Theater In The Now
August 23rd, 2016

"‘Die For Me’ is a promising premise that falters when it goes astray. Ness blends a poetic dialogue into a colloquial tale…Why is Allie's father seen and not Reece's parents? Ness must decide whether this play desires a complete adult presence through voiceover or have an actor or actors represent these voices physically. ‘Die For Me’ will also benefit from a fresh collaborator. It's clear that Ness is quite close to his script. An extra set of eyes is always helpful."
