Riveting, Great acting, Dizzying

See it if you enjoy Beckett-esque thrillers, you like great design elements, you don’t mind creepy.

Don't see it if you want a musical, you want easy answers, you don’t like dust.

Resonant, Great writing, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if Well conceived and executed tale of life during the dust bowl. Not your typical view, quite lyrical and evocative.

Don't see it if you aren't open to an unconventioanal view of a familiar theme. The writer/director had a concept, the actors bought in to it, and it shows.

Resonant, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you want to be immersed into the 1930's Dust Bowl: people, sights, dress, sounds and smells. Production brings the era alive in a good story

Don't see it if you want a happy story or grand production: this set and actors recreate a haunting time. Difficulty understanding some conversations.

Great acting, Entertaining, Clever

See it if It's great theatre in a small room. Staging/effects/costumes really helped add to the setting. Acting was great!

Don't see it if They use some smoke-like stuff to add to the effects of the dust bow and it got a little stuffy/hard to breathe at one point.

“’Last Man Club’ beautifully overloads the senses and transports you to the Dust Bowl in the 1930s...’Last Man Club’ is not a play which tells a straightforward story...This experience is best described as immersive environmental theater...The atmosphere is suffocating and riveting...The six actors combine a naturalistic style with their unique character's individualized quirkiness...This is a theater piece to experience not simply to follow a story arc.”

“Earth, air, water, and fire -- every vital element reaches critical risk level in ‘Last Man Club’, a tense dystopian mood piece from writer/director Randy Sharp...This one-act historical drama blows in with gale force as Sharp and her creative team unearth the allure and agony of Depression-era manifest destiny compounded by an environmental crisis...The compelling that it succeeds as a technically clean production while vividly presenting such a depressing dilemma.”

“An immersive revisit to a prior end of times...A journey into seeming end-of days as outside forces overwhelm both body and soul...The play is many things all at the same time, but mainly a full meal of a theatrical experience that has a depth that only an ensemble group like Axis can bring to it...The actors and the directing are all spot-on bringing their talents to bear, blending the darkness of life with the only thing that keeps us alive, that spark of hope, whether real or imagined.”

"Axis Theatre, the bold standard of boundary-breaking Off-Broadway theatre, once again serves up a powder keg banquet of characters...The script, direction, design, and actors elevate it to something as raw as it is wistful, wrapped in humor and drama...This is not a neat and tidy play with its curdling undertones of a distant time and place, but it is fleshed out with stark and haunting performances...A show that defies cliché in favor of the stirring and thought provoking."
