Disappointing, Dizzying, Ambitious, Great staging, Confusing

See it if you like experimental theater w/ set design mostly using lighting & visual projections. The staging is ok but the narrative/plot is unclear.

Don't see it if you do not like avante garde theater & small venues/tight spaces. The material seems profound-I got lost in the verbal & choreo translation.

Disappointing, Insipid, Indulgent, Cliched, Banal

See it if you are desperate for any show. But you really should not - it is absolutely terrible from the text to the staging to the actors.

Don't see it if you have anything else to do with your life. It is a horrible horrible piece played out by some terrible actors in a suffocating basement.
