See it if If you like si fi about rebels and a dystopian world. More reading than a plot line.
Don't see it if If you want a more traditional play. A play that moves swiftly through its story.
See it if you have a deep interest in German Expressionist art & would like to hear lots of letters from a minor practitioner of it read out loud.
Don't see it if you are expecting that a play about an interesting minor artist would give you some sense of the art he created.
See it if you are familiar with the premise of this play. I was influenced to see it by the description and expected to love it.
Don't see it if you don't like plays with mostly two people talking and a plot that was hard to follow
See it if you'd enjoy a brilliant think piece that links time & fantasy with art & friendships, the bread of life. Creative script, acting, set, music
Don't see it if you dislike cerebral art (or fine art history); to enjoy this play requires both focus & imagination. An artwork gone missing, 82 years.
See it if The relationship between German painter Franz Marc and bohemian poet Else Lasker Schüler is at the core of this wildly theatrical play
Don't see it if written and directed by Ran Xia. The language is robust, surprising, and poetic, and the staging is full of inventive flourishes that
