Great staging, Profound, Intelligent, Ambitious

See it if Entertaining, very good sound and staging. A well acted and directed play.

Don't see it if The shiw drags for about 10 minutes and the woman were a mystery in the play. They didnt even need to cast them.

Great acting, Great sound, Moody, Haunting, Desperate

See it if Dust bowl farmers so desperate, they want to believe - and might have done - anything. Great sound effects heighten the deepening insanity.

Don't see it if You aren’t up for a downbeat mood piece with fine acting, where the people are symbolized by a wailing crushed bloody jackrabbit.

“’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 paradox...is 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."
