Pop-acculturated, Of-the-moment, Hip, Funny, Sharp

See it if you want to see a new play from a playwright who chronicles the Brooklyn Creative Class better than anyone I know.

Don't see it if a lot of the pop culture references that might resonate with a young adult audience might not resonate with you. Read more

Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if You want to support new work, young voices and are interested in the epic moment of historical change that we are currently living in

Don't see it if You are expecting something immensely profound. The piece needs work and a solid ending.

Lighting & Sound America

"A sex comedy without any sex, an odd-couple pairing in which a couple of poorly matched temperaments noodle around a New York apartment for ninety minutes or so. It's not as bad as it sounds, thanks to an occasional funny line and a cast that is far better than the script."
