Banal, Confusing, Disappointing, Fluffy, Insipid

See it if If you want to see a play that was rewritten from it's original works.

Don't see it if If you want a clear show that is more linear, a musical. A better written play.

Insipid, Indulgent, Raunchy

See it if you are related to someone in the cast. or you support 13th Street Rep

Don't see it if Something is missing. The actors seem to be missing something We could not feel for any of the 3 leads. Not a great depiction of BiPolarD...

Slow, Disappointing, Insipid, Quirky, Fluffy

See it if you have time to spend with three characters who share parts of their lives that are sometimes entertaining, but mostly fall flat.

Don't see it if you cannot sit in a tight-seat theater for over two hours watching a new production that needs tightening up in script and staging.

Banal, Cliched, Excruciating, Insipid, Raunchy

See it if you'll identify w/a narcissistic old white gay w/a mentally ill best female friend who uses a casting couch to seduce a young Af-Am man

Don't see it if You know the difference between being bipolar and schizophrenic. You expect a good script and good acting.

Also There were 28 people in the audience when the play began. There were 1... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Funny, Quirky, Raunchy, Thought-provoking

See it if You would enjoy a "scream queen", a gray gay director and an ambitious young actor in a #metoo pre-code mashup.

Don't see it if You want a straightforward earnest depiction of the current discussions of sexual harassment in the workplace or mental health.

Also The director and actors have made some bold choices here. I viewed the... Read more Read less

Cliched, Disappointing, Gay-friendly, Repetitive dialogue, Talky, talky, talky

See it if you like plots where the cast portrays theatre folks (dramatist + actor) & a story where a rich 60-ish male "crushes" on a 20-ish newbie

Don't see it if you want to see good acting or a drama with CONFLICT instead of aimless chit-chat -- like an annoying argument you might overhear at a diner

Also Manic depressive Antonia [actress REW STARR] is supposed to have been ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if You are interested in a realistic depiction of mental illness and a concise but nuanced version of the Me Too situation in theater

Don't see it if You are uncomfortable with real depictions of mental illness. You are sick of hearing about Me Too situations although this is nuanced

Also I agree with Daniel K and I do not know why this show is being reviewe... Read more Read less

Too personal, Ambitious

See it if YOu feel compassionate to Aids survivors and want to see a very revealing by the play/ lead actor, who really tells his story

Don't see it if YOu have a very high level of acting

Disappointing, Cliched, Dated, Indulgent, Overrated

See it if You enjoy the stereotypical gay world and want to see it portrayed in stage.

Don't see it if You like new stories. You are uncomfortable with stereotypical gay stories with the crazy straight best friend.

“Starr expertly captures the agony of her character’s mental illness. She can be funny and fascinating...But within seconds, she can become rowdy, rude, and hard to take...Journigan is engaging and perfectly cast...In addition to dynamic performances...the play also features a very smart and ofte...
