Don't see it if you want a linear narrative and a set.

"The night goes nowhere. That’s probably the point...Nothing really goes according to plan, though planning isn’t one of the playwright Alex Borinsky’s big concerns...It doesn’t entirely work. The party scene is intended as a kind of gift, however poorly wrapped, but the acting often falters and the shots taken at the Brooklyn creative class are mostly cheap ones...I’d lay good money that this lack of action is deliberate...So stop whining about plot and pass the salsa."

"The Rady&Bloom production manages to be disorienting on two fronts. We see how nasty we can be to those we love and how that breezy callousness—scaled up slightly—may have doomed the earth...It’s not a roaring success; the too-sweet sentiments at the end don’t live up to show’s bright acidity. But it commands attention for its marriage of the personal and the political—its insistence that the world is with us, even at a party."
