Creative staging & direction, Tepid storytelling, Indulgent

See it if you are a long time follower of La Mama & know something about of the life of struggling downtown performance artists

Banal, Disappointing, Slow, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if You want to hear some man's vaguely boring, indulgent life story while watching 4 modern dancers move slowly around the room for 90 minutes

Don't see it if You don't like 1-man shows; if you don't care know the main actor personally; if you don't know the history of La Mama; if you need any plot
