Fractured, Surprising, Brilliantly played, Innovative

See it if you’d like to see a truly innovative play that, despite a wildly diffuse plot, holds its pieces together.

Don't see it if you want a play that tells a typically coherent story. Read more

Disappointing, Great staging

See it if A play about finding your animal self, with consistently memorable staging, lighting, and sound design throughout.

Don't see it if Super twee (take it or leave it), not a huge amount of dramatic movement or tension. Eliza Bent was great as the Roman Centurion son!

The New York Times

"Somewhere in 'Leap,' there is a wilder play, an angrier exploration of choice and defeat and desire, particularly of the female variety, but this one stops short of anything too troubling. Ms. Porter’s script can skew precious...Tara Ahmadinejad can’t keep these 90 minutes from dragging, or stretch the laughs — there are plenty — into something more substantial. And there is substance here."

"The play has a lot of potential with its innovative form and intriguing characters. However, it fell short because of a lack of connective tissues from moment to moment in its storytelling. The surrealism and hyper-self-awareness start to feel like a crutch."
