Must see, Poignant, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you appreciate solo successive male/female expression of disorientation, despair, emotional growth, self awareness from marital separation.

Don't see it if you prefer large cast/sets, multiple acts, light comedy, or musicals, are disturbed by enactment sexual activity/drug abuse/violence/blood. Read more

Perceptive, Relevant, Excellent direction, Insightful writing, Superb acting

See it if you favor serious themes presented with perception about people unraveling under psychological stress with fabulous acting/writing/directing

Don't see it if you favor "light" entertainment & dislike depictions of characters that are very pitiful, sad & suffering as they try to navigate life.

Intense, Funny, Great staging, Great acting

See it if super great acting and a clever narrative split between the diverging perspectives of two characters who are both horrible (and hilarious).

Don't see it if There's some domestic violence and other adult themes. Could be scary for some.

Refreshing, Intense, Essentially 2 solo acts, Side a+side b, Dark comedy

See it if same divorcing story, told by husband (Act1) then wife (Act2); riveting acting & accurate directing .. LOVE the ✂️ Flamingo! Surprising end.

Don't see it if Downtown theatre small production;2 gender neutral toilets, long queue may delay the show; 80min no intermission; for fun, not for sense :p

"'Monsoon Season' and the Poor Slobs in the Mirror: Lizzie Vieh's horror-comedy two-hander comes to New York."

"Vieh's script is extremely clever in its telling two sides of a story completely by separate monologues. The dialogue is real and yet extremely funny, never revealing too much, allowing the audience to piece together what's going on as the actors deliver their lines with impeccable timing and tumult."

New York Theater
November 3rd, 2019

"Black comedy…clever and merciless, but it is also oddly compassionate…Danny and his ex-wife Julia may be losers who constantly make laughably wrong choices, but they are trying to do right, to be better…ultimately gruesome…but there is humor throughout."

"'Monsoon Season' is a strange, funny, and haunting piece, which depicts, with wit and pathos, two lives careening out of control, and yet never takes a condescending or mocking attitude toward its characters."
