HERE presents the world premiere of this drama about a commercial real estate broker who receives a heart transplant, and finds himself forever changed. More…
Barry Weiss is a hotshot broker: arrogant, smart, and tough. His girlfriend Janie is his take-no-prisoners business partner. They ride the big wave of ambition and wealth, self-involved and self-satisfied. But when Barry needs a new heart, he descends into a comically callous world of medically inept doctors and hard-bitten nurses. As he recuperates, he finds that everything feels wrong. What are these feelings, these thoughts, all these questions? When he shows up on the doorstep of his donor's widow, he begins a dangerous journey into the true nature of his illness and the deeper meaning of his new heart.
See it if you have a free evening and want to be mildly entertained; a very predictable plot has been done before; over-the-top comedic performances
Don't see it if you want a show with a new twist; you don't mind sexy scenes which have no reason to be there; you don't mind stupid out-of-place comedy
See it if you like experimental works in small spaces with low production values.
Don't see it if you're looking for a cogent plot or a message that hasn't been done many times before.
See it if you like to ponder who we are and how and if transplanted organs may impact us.
Don't see it if You expect a mature script. Play seemed somewhat incomplete with lots of ideas not fully fleshed out resulting in trite characters.
See it if you like farces, silly plots and stereotyped characters with some humor and good acting.
Don't see it if you like shows that have realistic perceptive characterizations and plots that provide substance for interesting analysis.
See it if You need an irony booster. One character says it best, "I hate your lousy irony." The acting is good. There is an "ah ha," at the end.
Don't see it if Maybe it's me. I could find no sympathy for, nor interest in a loud-mouthed, arrogant, egotistical real estate guy.
See it if you are fascinated by how having a transplanted organ might change your personality. You like a mixture of drama with some huge comedy.
Don't see it if you think transplanting organs/personality is a not terribly important thing to think about.
See it if Remember years ago on TV-Dallas got so crazy they had Bobby come back to life and dream the whole last season away? If you liked that...???
Don't see it if You want any sort of originality or meaning or ANY reason to see this play...other than pretty good acting and odd direction.
See it if you enjoy an interesting plot. A man who has no heart gets a new heart and reacts. A bit overdone and a little confusing but interesting.
Don't see it if you don't like characters who keep yelling. A comedy with a serious idea that needs some work done to make it more effective.
