for a previous production "Part of what makes this a compelling story is that its ambiguous clues and its misdirections rope you into sympathy with a character that it might otherwise be hard to find common cause with. Stockton presents Nikki’s unraveling under pressure with sensitivity and subtlety...Austin Pendleton directs with a light touch...Together they offer an opportunity to detect the humanity and pain in the kind of character we would generally prefer to keep at a distance." Full Review
See it if you go in expecting a woman to devolve from sane to unstable before your eyes. You like one-person shows.
Don't see it if you're expecting more than I describe above. AFAIK, this is abt traveling that road as a viewer, & not meant to be a deeper dramatic play.
See it if enjoy a prop heavy one woman show,
Don't see it if you like one woman shows they go somewhere. I felt I was just being spoken to for an hour and was not sure why i was there.
See it if As watching you can picture the other person she was talking to. Things are not what they seem to be. You slowly see that something is out
Don't see it if One woman show all on the stage is a end table and chair. Uncomfortable with polar disorder.
See it if You want to go to sleep to a monotoned drowning on of a one women show that goes nowhere.
Don't see it if You want an uplifting, upbeat, show that is easy to follow. If you have a short attention span.
See it if Solo written by performer, unexpected humor & plot twists as a woman w/bi-polar disorder unravels. Spare & well modulated direction.
Don't see it if Not easy entertainment, much delusion and pain here, for grown ups only.
See it if you like whodunnits...as told by an unhinged protagonist. Well acted, but lots of tangents which slow the pace. Not much substance.
Don't see it if you are annoyed by a manic narrator. Monday is a thriller/character portrait without much takeaway. The actress is better than her material.
See it if You would enjoy a solo show about the drawing from the author's professional experience with those having the problem. Very realistic.
Don't see it if no matter how realistic, you don't find the mentally ill engaging.
See it if You want something short and entertaining. More of an acting exercise with a plot that keeps you engaged, than a full play.
Don't see it if Acting was pretty good but not great. I enjoyed it but can't say I'd recommend it to friends.
See it if You want to see a psychological dramedy where someone exhibits a touch of madness.
Don't see it if Don't like solo shows or can't hang in there when things start slow and then bog down a bit in middle.
See it if You want to see a masterful play about a woman who takes you on a very twisty journey. I won't say more...Great performance and direction.
Don't see it if You want a big, splashy play. This is close and intimate play.
See it if you love theater. Always a privilege to see an actor demonstrating their acting chops in a one sided police interview filled with twists.
Don't see it if you don't enjoy seeing a solo actor on stage.
See it if You want to see a one woman show that takes you down a road and just when you think you know whats going on something shifts.
Don't see it if You are not comfortable seeing a play about someone who seems to have it all together but there is more to her than meets the eyes.
See it if Solo woman enacts her end of a police interview at work. She's batty but entertaining. Delicious twisted black humor and cool plot twists.
Don't see it if You don't want to journey into a warped mentality. You want something more moving or meaningful. This was cute and clever.
See it if You like fast paced one person monologues that are quirky yet illuminate mental illness.
Don't see it if You don’t want to be talked at by a crazy woman for an hour plus. It’s funny and enlightening but a bit unnerving.
See it if You enjoy one woman shows, great acting, super presentation and an entertaining and evocative discussion of mental illness.
Don't see it if You have no compassion or imagination and want to see a musical.
