Theatre is Easy

"The whole piece doesn't really come together in a cohesive whole, and the overall style gets lost in the endless variety, but perhaps the variety itself is the style. Not every joke lands (or even gets completed), but like the particle collider, the sheer mass of jokes ensures that there is something in it for everyone. Ultimately the show accomplishes its goal, putting the Internet onstage and providing a 'dazzling display of distraction' that still manages to make a viewer think." Full Review
