Roundabout Theatre Company presents Jenny Rachel Weiner's new drama about about isolation, identity, and online dating. More…
Samantha is lonely and confined to her bed. Layne is shy and too afraid of the world to journey into it. But when these two thirtysomethings connect through an online dating site, they fall for each other fast and hard. What could go wrong? Considering that they’re both pretending to be someone else, the short answer is: everything.
See it if I had some prejudices shaken, laughed a lot, and gained new insight into relationships, health, sexuality, identity, love and self-worth.
Don't see it if You don't have an open mind. You don't enjoy feminine themes. This play has a lot to say underneath the surface.
See it if You like current topics of internet dating,obesity,online deception,self-esteem;to watch a great ensemble cast;storyline with twists & turns
Don't see it if You dislike small venues; like a fast paced story; had a bad experience with online dating;are uncomfortable with limited online sex talk
See it if you want to see a charming play about people forming connections under deceit in the digital age, you prefer small, intimate venues
Don't see it if you don't like the TV show Catfish. This is an engaging story, but it offers nothing that hasn't already been seen before in other media
See it if Interesting topic, handled in a different way. Very nice performances. Good tech. Not the usual take.
Don't see it if A small show. Not very profound.
See it if You like nice set design, in a small space; interest in online dating; or have ever felt like a misfit or alone. I cried. Acting✔️. Writing❓
Don't see it if You hate the show "Catfish" or being catfished... Or hate small theatre.
See it if you want to see something set in the present day that tries to incorporate modern forms of communication
Don't see it if you've ever seen an episode of Catfish
See it if you enjoy material that delves into modern issues, specifically related to technology and social media, and how those can be misused.
Don't see it if you have no interest in seeing a show heavily tied to our digital lives - cell phones, laptops, dating sites, etc.
See it if If you are addicted to the internet and you don't mind a story that is funny but hardly believable ( but it might make you think )
Don't see it if you want a play with a story that doesn't make you roll your eyes
See it if you've ever had an online relationship and find the concept of catfishing at all interesting.
Don't see it if dislike the use of technology in stage plays or if you're easily offended.
See it if a very thin comedy about relationships on the internet attracts you. There is the necessary, if manipulated, tug at heart strings, too.
Don't see it if you expect well developed characters with insights into the forces that drive people toward blind relationships and the nature of love.
See it if you want a play that is relevant and appropriate for today. You have ever done online dating.
Don't see it if you don't know about online dating this may not interest you.
See it if you like the show "Catfish" and don't mind long stretches of internet talking on stage which is not very theatrical.
Don't see it if you want unexpected, twisty material. This show is pretty formulaic regarding internet dating with the expected results but well acted.
See it if you 'get' social media and online dating and like a good story about what really makes people tick
Don't see it if you don't like small productions or are bored to tears by internet dating stories (no matter how heartfelt)
See it if you want to see a semi-predictable show about online dating that still remains interesting and fun to watch
Don't see it if the idea of watching people type back and forth for a good portion of the show bores you
See it if you would like to see a play that has some interesting twists and is well acted.
Don't see it if watching excellent actors spend quite a bit of time typing on a computer is too slow moving for you.
See it if you'd like to feel great about yourself, and see a play that'll take you into a world in which being yourself might not be the best plan.
Don't see it if you can't deal with real plays. This is an incredibly sad story that'll make you question your own friendships, and it might hurt.
See it if Small theater - small ensemble shows are enjoyable to you
Don't see it if Internet dating turns you off totally.
Also Cast does a great job with this show. Great emotions. Great acting.
See it if you've ever online dated - you'll commiserate with the awkwardness, loneliness, and search for self. Great cast.
Don't see it if you've ever online dated - it might hit too close to home for those unlucky in love. And it brings to life some very real fears.
See it if you are intrigued by the issues that modern technology brings into our relationships and self-esteem.
Don't see it if you watch too many episodes of Catfish as it may seem like a bit of a re-hash.
See it if you want to understand what it trully means to "see through the appearance." The beautiful humanity it showcases is invaluable.
Don't see it if I'm not sure about a few direction choices, but this is still a very affecting piece of work that fulfills what theater is supposed to do.
See it if Great acting in a very intimate venue. Outstanding performance by the character Layne and Suz steals the show.
Don't see it if You are uncomfortable in very revealing, intimate story telling.
See it if you like touching and humorous plays that stimulate discussion about human issues in today's world.
Don't see it if u want a realistic plot or details of how characters developed into the damaged human beings they are.
Also Not for those who prefer not to hear online sex talk.
