Ambitious, Indulgent, Entertaining, Relatable, Overdone

See it if you enjoys plays with many characters whose connections aren't immediately apparent. Trevor Vaughn & Sam Corbin stand out among a good cast.

Don't see it if you dislike theater that tries too hard to be profound. The piece would benefit from cutting 25% of both the characters and the run time.

Clever, Funny, Great writing, Creative, Entertaining

See it if You like intelligent contemporary theater which creatively illuminates OUR TOWN's continued resonance through warm, humorous, human tales.

Don't see it if You don't like nostalgic and, at times, wistful, exploration of one community's relationship to its high school, people, and drama program.

Self-indulgent, Funny

See it if you were in a production of our town, it's pretty funny

Don't see it if the playwright narrates the show and discusses the struggles with his process a lot, which feels self-indulgent and irrelevant to audience

Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You enjoy meta pieces about the theater or went to High School

Don't see it if You like very straight forward theater.

"Though a tad self-indulgent at times, especially in moments when Praley as narrator melded the story of the play itself with the story of his writing process, the play’s self-referential structure created a richly humorous tone. Directed by Isaac Klein, the performances hit the play’s comedic and tragic moments with impressive panache. As Hank, one of the fathers, Chance Carroll particularly shines as the center of the play’s tragic moments."
