Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if You like the challenges of conceptual theatre. This play is replete with poetry. It has gravitas and it elicits lighthearted laughs as well.

Don't see it if You are looking for conventional narrative.

"The program portends a 'disaster that brings us closer together and true intimacy.' Unfortunately, it delivers only a disaster set in NYC during Hurricane Sandy inside a flooded bodega...Playwright Andrea Goldman borrows from both 'The Wizard of Oz' and the poetry of John Donne but mottles the play meant to be have an ephemeral dreamlike quality and theoretical gravitas. The writing lacks brains and courage...Red Alert: there's no play like this. It liquifies into a waste of time."

"You don’t have to see the show multiple times to feel its gallivanting pathos—you need but once. And if you’re patient during the 'set up', you’ll eventually be girded with a seductive coalescence that come-hithers you into a hyperrealistic world that feels like if 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'A Christmas Carol' had sex in an abandoned New York bodega during hurricane Sandy."
