Ambitious, Confusing, Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if You enjoy a look into the process of creating a play & a character. You like shows that pull from the creator's life into another character.

Don't see it if You want a finished play-it's also in process. You want more theatre & less therapy session. You want focus: not enough Mata Hari or creator

Cliched, Dated, Dizzying, Indulgent, Quirky

See it if you want to experience biography and emotional journey of Mata Hari as autobiography of Dutch author/performer, and irrelevant psychedelia

Don't see it if you don't like narcissistic monologue, 1 hour solo performance while you're in uncomfortable, moldy seat, musky small theatre with vagrants

Ambitious, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if you like one person shows and want to support small theatre. Generally good performance.

Don't see it if you don't like shows with inexplicable elements, such as the mostly unrelated video continually playing here (buffalos??).

Confusing, Self-indulgent, Ambitious

See it if Meandering explorations; an over-the-top one-person performance; unfulfilled hints of deeper meaning. A deep dive into the abyss.

Don't see it if You seek clarity, coherence and structure, something that sounds less improvisational and more structured.

Imaginative, Magical, Performance art, Great acting, Great staging

See it if you would enjoy a powerfully acted 1 woman show about a writer conjuring up parts of Mata Hari's life in a dreamlike multi media setting.

Don't see it if you want a traditional linear plot or play stucture. This is an immersive experience, more like performance art that's very well executed!

Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Intense, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You are an Eva Dorrepaal fan. And even if you haven’t seen her movies, you might become a fan after you see her in this show!

Don't see it if You need to see a finished production. There’s lot of wonderful energy and stylized moments, but the show is still finding itself.
