Insipid, Confusing, Dystopian, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you enjoy dystopian political fantasy with absurdist leanings.

Don't see it if emotional realism is something you value in drama. I found the relationships only word deep without supporting actions.

Great staging, Solid acting, Disappointing

See it if you want to see a play with great promise that actively deconstructs American Myths.

Don't see it if you will be overly disappointed by a play that supplies new American Myths worse than the old. Read more

Thought/conversation-provoking, Great lighting and sound, Great cast and direction, Absorbing, relevant, Clever, quirky, entertaining

See it if You're up for a terrific cast in a serious farce about power and survival. And love, in a world where what's gorgeous is anyplace that's dry

Don't see it if You dislike farce or SciFi; don't think the climate's changing or the president lies constantly; you believe everything you hear on TV. Read more

Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Intelligent, Clever

See it if You enjoy dystopian allegories for the dystopia we currently inhabit, that touch on multiple themes and maintain a sense of humor.

Don't see it if You struggle with metaphor or aren't in the mood to tolerate a play that is sometimes slow. Read more

Bechdel test passing, Dystopian, Quirky, Funny, Clever

See it if you're drawn to imaginative after-catastophe narratives. You want to support new work in a theater that consistently encourages it.

Don't see it if repetition drives you out of your gourd and/or your imagination only functions with an assist from Hollywood level sets and special effects.

Disappointing, Relevant, Quirky, Slow, Clever

See it if you enjoy an exploration of important issues in new work by playwrights with a message. Many important points are made that reflect our time

Don't see it if you want a polished production - it moves a bit slow and needs some rewriting on the important points with less cheapening of the messages.

The New York Times
February 3rd, 2020

"Poets Vie for the Golden Ticket in ‘Really Really Gorgeous’: In this dystopian satire, 'American Idol' and '60 Minutes' still reign, the White House is in Cleveland and a pair of writers compete to save the world."

"Nick Mecikalski's 'Really Really Gorgeous' (directed by Miranda Haymon) is set in a dystopian world that will seem familiar or at least largely plausible to audiences in 2020. In the play, dramatic shifts in climate have left much of North America underwater (both literally and figuratively)."
