Rivals turned roommates unearth common ground in rejection, rootlessness, and retreat. A play about making do, making rent, and making “Art”—while climbing an (imaginary?) mountain.

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

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.

"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."
