About the show

Randomly Specific Theatre presents this new dark comedy about seeing an opportunity when it falls in front of you. More…

Life has beaten Christopher Abandonato down. He’s got a dead-end construction job, a wife who puts him in his place, and an out of work brother-in-law living in his basement. But he’s a dreamer, and he’s convinced buying abandoned storage units is his ticket to becoming rich. He just needs to find that something that will change his life forever.

Intense, Quirky, Raunchy, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if you want some comedy and a U-turn ending by a playwright who has done better. The idea is good, the script repetitive, the cast energetic.

Cliched, Disappointing, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if you like melodramas that are predictable. The acting is over the top in a cartoon sort of way.

Don't see it if you are looking for an intelligent drama about greed.

Zero cast-connection / unpolished / disappointing, Nice set / well-done staging & scene-changes, Audience barely chuckled / ambitious book has potential, Loud / too much over-the-top screaming, Cliched stereotypical nj family (humorous)

See it if you enjoy supporting small theater companies. Described as 'dark comedy', but doesn't really get dark until the end.

Don't see it if you prefer bigger epic plays. It's not bad, just not well-cast, & felt unfinished (ending seemed like it was tagged-on to meet a deadline).

Also Third production in...... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Disappointing, Funny, Cliched, Silly

See it if a fellow fan of prolific Phillips. Don't mind 4 long flights of stairs (tho rewarded w/ free wine). Expecting goofy comedy vs. edgy satire.

Don't see it if expecting Phillips's better, quirkier Weekend Will End or Arbuckle Syndrome; need likable characters—tho McRae charmingly conjures Tyne Daly

Quirky, Great staging, Fluffy, Funny

See it if It wasn't as dark of a comedy as advertised, but, it had its moments. Nice set design for a black box theatre. Cast was well-connected. Some

Don't see it if Crude language, but, humor kept up with the times. It's worth the affordable value. wasnt thought-provoking, but, I'd say see it.

Clever, Funny

See it if It's funny and absurd but grounded. I laughed a lot. There's a lovely bit in there about the Godfather Vs Goodfellas.

Don't see it if The ending doesn't support the weight of what came before and some of the Jersey accents are hit or miss.
