Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Good acting, Gives a message

See it if You want to see a performance of the effects an apocalyptic event can have on humanity. You like simple staging.

Don't see it if You need elaborate staging. You can't sit back and have an open mind. You only like plays about real issues and not what if.

Shallow, Relevant, Unfinished, Original, Edgy

See it if you want a clever, not-particularly-subtle meditation on otherness. It's a refreshingly unique show with a deliberately diverse cast.

Don't see it if you like taut pacing or character development. They felt a bit stereotypical and their conflicts too scripted. The ending was also too pat.

Great acting, Great staging, Ambitious

See it if you want to see the first post-Trump play or if you like apocalyptic scifi with a bit of LGBTQ philosophy mixed in.

Don't see it if you wish everything cut and dried or crystal clear.

Great writing, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Must see, Great acting

See it if .... you want to expand your view and think deeply. Loved the show. So relevant after our recent election.

Don't see it if ... you want a light and fluffy show. This one entertains AND asks you to ponder important issues.
