About the show

A revival of a 2012 Off-Broadway hit, this dark comic drama centers around group of Generation Me college students in the aftermath of a wild campus party. More…

When morning-after gossip about privileged Davis and ambitious Leigh turns ugly, self-interest collides with the truth and the resulting storm of ambiguity makes it hard to discern just who's a victim, who's a predator, and who's a Future Leader of America. All that's certain is when the veneer of loyalty and friendship is stripped back, what's revealed is a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare where only the strong could possibly survive.

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

See it if You want to see a show so current it could have been written from today’s headlines. Smart twist on subject keeps it fresh and interesting.

Don't see it if You don’t want to see a show about current events. Serious social and sexual issues are dealt with honestly and frankly. It’s not fluff!

Disappointing, Indulgent, Dated, Well done 1st act, terrible 2nd act, Very good cast

See it if You enjoy morally murky dramas. You like dramas with lots of twists.

Don't see it if You don't want another "bro" play where everyone's awful & a bad woman deserves to be punished. You want twists based in real life.

Also I knew going in that it would be a complicated moral situation. The 1s... Read more Read less

See it if you enjoy how young people twist the truth and cope with remaining friends.

Don't see it if you are bothered by frank language and situations that young adults engage in.

Absorbing, Entertaining, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you don't mind a slightly dated show about date rape and revenge. The acting was very energetic, especially considering the intimate venue.

Don't see it if this topic no longer has any interest to you. You don't like in-your-face plays containing violence against women. You want light subjects

Entertaining, Funny, Romantic

See it if You want a fun night back in school.

Don't see it if Your looking for something highbrow.

So close to being really good

See it if You want to see a gritty play in a really nice small intimate theater

Don't see it if you are looking for a traditional old-school type play

Also This play was very frustrating to me. The subject of the play is exact... Read more Read less

Distasteful but timely, Neil labute-ish, No one wins, Great cast, atmosphere & intent, Thought-provoking

See it if Me Generation talent, immersive atmosphere, ripped from the headlines topic, Stella Adler stylings, commitment to story telling please you

Don't see it if stylized violence, rape, millennials searching, bagging relationships in crisis, claustrophobic basement setting, would give you pause

79
Relevant, Thought-provoking, Edgy, Uneven

See it if the me generation and it's moral ambiguities interest you. Good young performers. Interesting twists & turns.

Don't see it if violence, date rape, some illogical & unlikely choices made by characters would turn you off.

78
Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intense, Absorbing

See it if You're interested in a well-acted show about some of the perils of modern sexual relationships. Somewhat hard to hear, but worth the effort.

Don't see it if You are triggered by stories about rape or struggle to hear when actors speak softly when facing away from you.

Entertaining, Great acting, Needs better direction, Relevant

See it if you enjoy young actors doing a very good job with difficult, ambiguous material.

Don't see it if a lack quality direction annoys you. The actors needed to be slowed down. Much of the delivery was too fast, scenes rushed

78
Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Quick paced, Timely & relevant, Great acting & directing

See it if You're up for a beautifully cast, smoothly directed, well staged ensemble whose collective acting is deceptively effortless and on point.

Don't see it if The possibility of sexual assault or terrifically realistic stage fighting are triggers, or if the college campus lives of Millenials bore.

Also Smooth and inventive blocking by director Adam Martin makes the best u... Read more Read less

Confusing, Intelligent, Mostly good acting, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you're interested in shows about college kids, sexual and personal morality, the conflict between personal ambition and morality.

Don't see it if you aren't willing to put up with too many unresolved issues,plot twists that go off into the land of soap opera, a couple of miscast actors

Also the first act was really, really good. (Pun intended.) The second act ... Read more Read less

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Resonant, Disappointing

See it if You can be patient. The first act is awkward but it comes together in the second act. it explores date rape and the millennium me culture

Don't see it if You want knockout acting and are triggered by serious subjects ie date rape

Great acting, Resonant, Masterful

See it if You want to watch a cast of masterful young actors boldly handle a challenging and highly engaging play.

Don't see it if You can't handle intense subject material or don't like small theaters where the actors may trod on you.

Edgy, Intense, Relevant

See it if You have an interest in Millennials. You are interested in seeing the consequences of alcohol on campus.

Don't see it if Ambiguity upset you. You need definite conclusions.

Also This made me want to campaign to prohibit on campus drinking! The show... Read more Read less

Clever, Great writing, Thought-provoking

See it if The play gets the feel and voice of the new generation right. Money is still the root of everything (good or bad), no matter what one says.

Don't see it if Despite uneven casting and plot point problem, the play works. Personally I am not a fan of intimate staging, especially in close quarters.

78
Relevant, Engaging, Intimate setting

See it if you enjoy watching the millennial generation try to understand itself (it can't), an energetic ensemble and supporting young theater in NYC.

Don't see it if you expect a play to be able to handle the tough questions it raises, or if you dislike moral ambiguities that may seem artificial at times.

69
Ambitious, Great acting, Relevant, Trigger warning!

See it if you want something that at tries to take on the idea of sexual assault on campus. Not sure I'm a fan of where they go though.

Don't see it if you're sensitive to depictions of sexual assault, or conversations about it. There's a fairly graphic scene at the end that shook me.

Also Holy shit TRIGGER WARNING.

75
Good acting, Good staging, Energetic, Disjointed

See it if you enjoy the twisted interplay of tormented youth trying to transcend societal forces, constricting mores and hypocritical personalities.

Don't see it if You seek something optimistic and uplifting.

55
Disappointing, Uneven, Too long and meandering

See it if Some interesting ideas, and some talent in the cast, but the writing fails to advance the central story and brings in too many substories..

Don't see it if and obtusely inflates what should be minor characters. With a lack of foreshadowing of main story, conclusion felt confusing and unearned

Entertaining, Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Resonant

See it if you like a major twist to your typical college "what happened last night" scenario. Actors & staging were great considering the small space.

Don't see it if you don't like small productions and have a problem with the sexual violence as the subject matter.

70
Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if Intimate staging fueled with moral dilemma. Intriguing to see how one night of sexual violence unfolds and cascades.

Don't see it if Selfish characters, questionable progression and ambiguous conclusion. Perhaps packing too much than it can handle

Also ‘Generation me’ asking the audience to decide who is right and wrong. ... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Profound, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you like plays dealing with serious subjects with interesting character development and a contemporary style

Don't see it if you expect a light play about young people.

Cliched, Dated, Relevant, Unnecessary

See it if You are really interested in plays about sexual assault

Don't see it if You demand more from your theatre than “acceptability”

Thought-provoking, Great staging, Great acting, Funny, Ambitious

See it if Interested in an understanding of the newest adult generation. Want to see how a variety of personalities react to a complex situation.

Don't see it if Sensitive to violent or sexual situations. Abhor morally ambiguous young people. Want a definitive answer to things.

Also I really liked how the set was designed and how it could be used for b... Read more Read less
