Entertaining, Funny, Pointless, Trite, Slow

See it if You want to see a show that's entertaining-ish, but just doesn't seem to really exist for any reason. It's not fun enough or have any point.

Don't see it if You've only got time to see a few of the Corkscrew shows. You're time is better spent at False Stars, High School Coven or All of My Blood.

Great acting, Entertaining, Great staging, Relevant, Disappointing

See it if you want to see some good acting from a young cast and great use of props in a small production on topics of the day.

Don't see it if you can't relate to the younger generation and their attitudes or want an ending that is more reasonable. Needs a little tightening up.

Immature, Some good ideas, Indulgent, Funny, Slow

See it if You want to support a playwright & cast in the early stages of their careers. You know someone w/the show. You like millennial stories.

Don't see it if You want a clean script: while there are some good ideas, none are developed enough. It has a Playwriting 101 assignment vibe.

Entertaining, Funny, Slow, Great acting, Quirky

See it if You want to see a group of young actors doing a good job with this script. You don't mind a fast paced yet slow at times performance.

Don't see it if You want a powerful performance. You don't like small theaters with simple staging. You don't have an open mind.

Critic Reviews (2)

Front Row Center
August 27th, 2017

"Goettler and Hathaway have the germ of a good idea, and they even have some good scenes and dialogue. What they don’t have is something to say about what they’re presenting. They don’t have a play. They have some sketches that don’t go anywhere...There’s plenty of topical humor, but it doesn’t reveal much of anything to anyone. It’s all foam and no foie gras. That said, there is some excellent work here. The standout in the cast is Shackner’s Holly."

"While the seeds of a complicated discussion were planted, I found myself wishing for a deeper dive. But sometimes, subtlety is a positive here...This is a show marketed as being about millennials, but it treats its subjects with more care than most journalism on the same topic...It’s not perfect; few plot conclusions are made, it began to feel long past the halfway point, and the ending was puzzlingly vague. But how it approached its characters’ personal lives...was unexpectedly refreshing."
