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.

Quirky, Confusing

See it if you want a show about friendships that doesn't really "bloom".

Don't see it if you want an interesting plot. This really goes nowhere.
