Clever, Funny, Intelligent, Relevant, Quirky

See it if you want to see a great feminist take on life in Eden before the fall.

Don't see it if you have no sense of humor

56
Ambitious, Overrated, Short

See it if you want a mostly female cast, a different account of whether the Garden of Eden was paradise and a different explanation for the expulsion.

Don't see it if you want more than one-sided characters and an undeveloped idea. This play failed to meet its potential. I give it a C- grade.

57
Cliched, Disappointing, Fluffy, Insipid

See it if You like blondes with unrealistic southern accents and stereotypical sassy black girlfriends

Don't see it if You are hoping to see an interpretation with a twist or even a clever take on the old story. This was anti-women and anti-men in one take.

85
Absorbing, Great acting, Relevant, Great writing

See it if You get the point that Adam and God are one-dimensional because they are satisfied with the status quo in contrast to Eve's dissatisfaction

Don't see it if You're not interested in women's rights or don't like Hillary Clinton.

80
Clever, Entertaining, Funny

See it if you like funny plays and funny women.

Don't see it if you're not into women's rights or character acting.

79
Clever, Funny, Great acting, Relevant

See it if Listen a clever, satirical, funny twist to an story.

Don't see it if you sit in your seat with the expectation to indulge yourself in theater. it is a short play.

60
Clever, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if You are interested in seeing a feminist play with a good idea at its foundation

Don't see it if You are expecting complex and developed ideas and clever writing. The advertising oversold this show, and it ended abruptly.

Clever, Great writing, Great acting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking

See it if You like great writing.

Don't see it if You're a loser.

Theatre is Easy
August 24th, 2016

"We wonder why Eve didn’t depart sooner, and a little more effort to show Paradise’s appeal might have created some interesting dramatic tension…'Eve' sets up a plot rife with issues of gender parity, free will, and self-definition, but never quite gives these themes their full due. However, by highlighting this well-known tale's all-too-familiar flavors of sexism and power dynamics, Hutson-Ellenberg invites us to consider Eve’s side of the story."
