Lots of screaming, Repetitive, Shallow, Slow, Amateurish

See it if you know someone in the cast. The premise (a teenage girl obsessed w/beauty) has merit, but its repetitive, screaming treatment is torturous

Don't see it if you want a polished, NYC-quality prodn. EWBD's community theater via performances/script. Some funny lines buried in morass. Voices too loud Read more

In desperate need of editing!, Relevant, Slow, Absorbing, Intelligent

See it if You want to see a smart look at a young girls view of self worth, image and death (to name a few). Well acted. Cleverly directed.

Don't see it if You can’t appreciate a diamond in the rough. This is WAY to long and in need of a good edit but there’s some good stuff in there.

Intense, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if you want good character development around the issues of parental loss and coming of age sexually.

Don't see it if you are bothered by minimal sets, loud screaming or the subject matter. A good edit is needed as this production runs two hours.

Ambitious, Great acting, Intense, Slow, Thought-provoking

See it if You want a searing, dark coming of age story. You want a commentary on beauty, love & sex as seen through a teen lens.

Don't see it if You're uncomfortable w/frank discussions about sex. You like a strong through-line:rough transition btwn scenes & often didn't quite connect

Great acting, Very disappointing theater venue

See it if You want to see many great performances on a very small and intimate stage

Don't see it if You need things to be straightforward. As the play goes on it gets a bit confusing and we don’t know what is real and what isn’t. Read more
