"It’s a reckless and even fun adventure...A meditation on life, death, and everything in between...Maddow’s writing is erudite but never dry. It has a cyclical form that, at times, deconstructs ideas and builds on them so that a dense idea is picked apart like a thread...The many absurd and hilarious moments in the play don’t upstage the deeper reflections...A magic carpet ride of intellectual discovery."

"Glories in its details and takes its time getting to its destination...Nelis and Zimet are each splendid actors, but it's when they engage with one another that the play comes alive. Their energy is infectious...Politically timely, but never feels like it's lecturing the audience or pushing a political agenda...Some audiences may not be easily won over...However, those who are willing to relax and absorb the sights and sounds around them...are in for an evening of joy and insight."

See it if Playful friendship has its ups and downs but mostly just fun. Clever birthday riddle for the audience. Wonderfully creative music.
Don't see it if Half performance art, half comedic play. Not a traditional narrative. Bogs down a little at times but then out comes something unexpected.
See it if You like experimental theatre or brass bands.
Don't see it if You need a play where everything is explained to you or you don't do well with noise. Loud instruments in small space.
See it if You are open to a group known for original and clever productions. Always relevant in a subtle way. The brass add a whole set of characters.
Don't see it if You are a philistine; be adventurous; try it for thought-provoking entertainment that works. I feared so much brass, but not overpowering.
See it if you want to experience an innovative mix of science & theater, of play & music, or are concerned with how human knowledge is passed on.
Don't see it if you are looking for a play that is a succession of recognizable, real-life situations.
