Great acting, Confusing, Disappointing, Quirky, Ambitious

See it if You like quirky, out of the box style shows. Lots of dream like sequences (too many for my taste) and metaphorical bits.

Don't see it if You want to see an easily understandable show or one that ends up making sense at all.

Great acting, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if had very good acting and excellent staging. They used the stage well. If they rework the last 20 minutes, this could be a good one.

Don't see it if The last 20 minutes hurt this show, it became not so much confusing as it got away from the main plot.

Quirky, Edgy, Resonant, Interesting use of space, Original

See it if experimental theater is your idea of an interesting evening. Starting from a gay college romance, it evolves to something utterly unexpected

Don't see it if you like conventional plot and predictable characters.

Excruciating, Self-indulgent, Pretentious, Confusing, Banal

See it if you want to support some talented young actors who commit wholeheartedly, earnestly and boldly to some agonizing theatre (& deserve better).

Don't see it if you bristle at the idea of an "arty" playwright trying to be "edgy" & "experimental", producing unintelligible nonsense masked as "high art" Read more

Ambitious, Confusing, Great staging, Dizzying, Intelligent

See it if Burkhardt's epic historical time-tripping gay fantasia is an edgy mash-up of Foucault, Whitman, Kushner & Hammett Golden's cherub is great!

Don't see it if Dense, philosophical, post-ironic dialogue often confusing & rigorously demanding but worth it Last 1/2 hr of script spins out of control

Kaleidoscopic tale of gay lovers

See it if Ditzy gay relationship complicated.by arrival of uptight grandma. Lesbian friends try to help. All four actors play the old lady for a while

Don't see it if you can't follow a non-linear narrative with quite a bit of fantasy. Confusing but hypnotic. Chubby chasers will also find a lot to like.

Banal, Confusing, Excruciating, Slow, Over-thought

See it if you like being confused by who people are, where they are, and what they are saying.

Don't see it if small, black box spaces aren't for you. Or if you have a choice.

Subpar student work, Pretentious, Derivative, Excruciating, Insipid

See it if You'll see anything with a queer spin to it no matter how derivative it is of other gay works.

Don't see it if You want to see a play with good writing and acting.

"Burkhardt piles on academic inanities for one hour and 40 minutes in this leaden saga. The abrasive dialogue has the characters refer to themselves in the third person and comment on the actions...The play's LGBTQ sensibility is more of a concern than coherence. It all plays out as a self-conscious hollow spectacle, wasting the time of the audience and of the company of eager youthful actors...Heyman's staging gracefully keeps thing moving so that the production is at least watchable."

"One of the most exciting directors working today, Heyman creates theatre magic out of nothing...A difficult play to stage and enact...I felt myself playing catch up to the story that kept introducing more characters, variables, time periods and historical facts...But you'll remain entertained by an excellent cast and visual surprises and delights. Heyman has a penchant for difficult texts and you can trust her to take you on another wonderful journey."
