The Seeing Place Theater presents this warm comic drama about four flawed but likeable lower-middle-class New Yorkers who are trying to stay afloat in the deep water of day-to-day living. More…
"A quirky and affectionate play...It's a treat, then, to see the fine job The Seeing Place has done with capturing both the play's neurotic humor and its heartfelt tenderness, in an intimate setting that leaves you feeling as though you were eavesdropping on the lives of the characters...The cast of four more than meets the demands of this gentler piece...Color me impressed, and let me urge you to check them out for yourself."

“An intimate, almost too detail-filled production...The main problem with this production is that while concentrating on the moment to moment Ms. Cronican failed to see the whole...This 'Jack’ lacked coherence and pacing and also seemed a bit under-rehearsed with lines too often recited with hesitation...I can’t deny that there were some beautiful moments...but moments don’t necessarily add up to a show.” Full Review
“The charming script has many juicy acting opportunities, though the somewhat unkempt production does leave many unrealized. Still, the work has some genuinely charged partnering moments...I am a fan of this company, their spirit, their go-get-it nature, their mission statement, the plays they choose to produce. Though this work was unrealized, I will not give up on their work: despite some red flags, there are other beacons of light.” Full Review
See it if If you are interested in an admirable production of a difficult play. Terrific acting and some really lovely moments.
Don't see it if You want a play where you can laugh out loud or cheer - this is not one of those, even in a perfect production. But this is nicely nuanced.
See it if If you can forgive a cast of unbalanced talent and experience. A plot of 2 couples w/relationships going in opposite directions is enjoyed.
Don't see it if Stoners having the same life problems as others and dealing with same feelings seems unrealistic to you.
See it if Actors give the material a needed push, especially in the first act which is all over the place. Originally a play, it feels like a movie.
Don't see it if Jumping from one quick scene to another makes the play unfocused. Director/star Erin Cronican & the always enjoyable Brandon Walker shine.
See it if you enjoy plays about 30 something singles navigating the difficulties of relationships, finances and life in general, in NYC.
Don't see it if you expect interesting characterizations, in-depth insights into life and relationships, highly professional acting, writing and production.
See it if you're interested in millennial relationships...you struggle with the past affecting your present...you want to support small theater.
Don't see it if you need a story to follow some sort of arc...you don't like to just make up with you think the show might've been about.
See it if U want to support friend in cast, (2 of whom were fine) otherwise, steer clear. Odd occurences-were some cast actually high?, couldn't under
Don't see it if Stand Turk actor, unnecessary screaming w/out buildup, unbelievable pairing of couple who "has it together")... big "?" all around~
See it if you know people connected with the play and want to support them.
Don't see it if you want to see an interesting, relevant play with good acting and good direction.
Also Very disappointing experience.
See it if you have close friends or family as part of the cast and you want to show your support
Don't see it if are expecting a polished script; are uncomfortable with vaping with smoke filling the stage in a small theater
See it if You like life-like acting and stories about real people that may not be as dramatic as you’re used to.
Don't see it if You’re overly judgmental about needing theater to be polished and packaged.
