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.

Ambitious, Confusing, Loose plots!, Good costume designs!, Failed satire!

See it if U are curious about Millenials & podcasts. U support new works & new artists & forgive their inexperiences. Costumes are good throughout.

Don't see it if U dislike inexperienced work. U are turned off by a play written & made clearly for the under age 30 market which is not business smart! Read more

Quirky, Disjointed, Confusing

See it if You want to see a show with some truly funny moments and it won't bother you that it's desperately in need of a dramaturg.

Don't see it if You'll be annoyed by the feeling that there are two different shows happening here and they aren't able to decide which they want. Read more

Front Row Center

"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."
