Slow, Thought-provoking, Great writing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if Blind date catastrophe day after "The Thing" dramedy when a twin telephones to find lost twin. Meta with sharply written idea-filled script.

Don't see it if High-concept premise abandoned in second act after complicated and confusing set-up. Showcase. Thirty-seat studio theatre.Half Equity actors Read more

Funny, Great acting, Thought-provoking

See it if This is a funny play about a difficult day -- the day after September 11 -- that really made me think. The cast is phenomenal.

Don't see it if It's definitely a quirky, theatrical script, with a number of meta things happening. So if that doesn't appeal, this isn't the show for you.

Thought-provoking, Intense, Hilarious, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if You like twists and turns in your theater. Set over a blind date the day after 9/11. Sounds rough, and it is at moments, but also brilliant.

Don't see it if You don't like theater that comments on itself. Also if you get claustrophobic, the space is a small blackbox.
