Exceptional writing, cast and production

See it if new voices, great acting, important issues, relationships, academic and social politics well crafted mean good theater in your opinion.

Don't see it if getting to Queens is inconvenient, or you don't like to think to hard about important issues when you are in the theatre.

Also APAC continues to produce real jewels. Smart, spare but focused and effective productions with fine actors and honest productions. A real pleasure to enjoy this theatre company.

Entertaining, Relevant, Intelligent, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if Because it is an interesting story that makes us question what we value; what we think of ourselves and what others value in us.

Don't see it if You want a story that keeps you in the edge of your seat with dramatic conflicts and unexpected turns. It is a quiet story needing something

Ambitious, Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if Plays about science, scientists, environmentalism, ethics, and personal relationships interest you.

Don't see it if You don't like plays that touch upon science.

Also an excellent play where the supposedly good guys have ethical problems for the best reasons possible. It's an interesting view of why personal passions and politics need to be kept to the side and out of the laboratory.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Funny, Scientific, Refreshing

See it if Scientists’ relationships are stressed when flaws emerge in their work. Well written & acted. Humorous romantic subplot with a wall st guy

Don't see it if You are not interested in science & academic research. A few liberties are taken to add to the conflicts. Bare bones production.

Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Resonant, Great staging

See it if You work in research or are interested in the ethics of research.

Don't see it if If you're an actual researcher, it's a bit stressful! But that doesn't mean it wasn't worth seeing.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Intelligent, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you like stories that relate well to current ethical issues and want to support a good cast in a black box production well lit and staged.

Don't see it if you do not like hearing or learning of research topics and the issues that are faced through interactions among professors and students.

Also The metal folding chairs are tough for a 100 minutes without an intermission. An audience woman who vaped throughout the performance was not removed or asked to stop.

BOAST: Best of Astoria
February 11th, 2019

“A story particularly relevant to today’s political climate...The intimacy of the setting allows the audience to completely immerse themselves in the story of two female graduate students...Both characters push personal and professional boundaries...I found the story both relatable and realistic in its approach to scientific research and the pitfalls of long-term data collection...Any play that leaves you talking, thinking and discussing for days afterwards is...one worth pursuing.”
