Edgy, Quirky, Relevant, Confusing, Dizzying

See it if you'd like to see a play with greater potential. This one has so much going on that it needs a more robust production.

Don't see it if you find small productions, with many scene changes and flashbacks, where the set is changed by the actors, to distract from the momentum.

Banal, Dated

See it if into a sincere, East-Village bootstrapping-type play about "real people"

Don't see it if with all respect to the effort, this is also unfocused and overacted

"Welch's play is a powerful testament of the human condition, portraying people who are not only forced to drift through their lives, but to do so with complete acknowledgment of their demise. With this, though, comes the heartwarming basis of this story - an equal sense of unease and comfort in knowing that, as damaged as a person is, there is always another who finds that struggle beautiful."

"...A teenage, runaway heroin addict with daddy issues and a former graffiti artist long past his glory days explore the borders of friendship and codependency in Larry & Lucy, a gritty little slice-of-life one-act spinning its wheels on the intimate basement stage at Theater for the New City. Playwright Peter Welch propels his title characters forward through a whirlwind couple of days in and out of Los Angeles while simultaneously pulling them back to their unhappy pasts via brief flashbacks woven throughout the piece. If the duo’s actions are at best unusual, and at worst highly unlikely or confusing, the offbeat performances and noir atmosphere conjured up by director Joe John Batista make for a trippy ride to the West Coast."
