Clever, Original

See it if Are willing to see an original play in a non-traditional space.

Don't see it if Want to see something flashy and elaborately staged.

September 2nd, 2015

"Schmidt nicely captures the language of the locker room, mixing bromides with a steady stream of jargon about matchups and defensive schemes...But 'Our Last Game' falls flat. His limitations as an actor show. It’s a blunt, workmanlike performance in a play that needs something more charismatic and complex. Mr. Schmidt is a hustler, but in theater as well as sports, sometimes you need a star."

"Schmidt’s character study, though amusing and vivid, is weirdly thin and truncated. Since flopping is his grand theme, maybe the lameness is intentional. You could say that being a loser is part of Schmidt’s brand; on his website, he dryly notes that his plays 'have been rejected by some of the most and least venerable theater companies in America.' For better or worse, 'Our Last Game' will likely not break that streak."
