Confusing, Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent

See it if you have a lot of patience. The actors are working hard.

Don't see it if you have anything else to do. The characters are thin with obscure motivations and weak plot.

Actors at top of their game, Bleak, Great showcase for actors, Intense

See it if you want 2 experience a lab of putting all the pieces of a project perfect for actors & design personnel involved, bleak but perfectly tuned

Don't see it if prostitution, simulated sex, nudity, publishing, playwriting, sharing hookers, red dresses, cross-dressing, are outside your comfort zone

Great acting, Edgy, Raunchy, Flawed

See it if very interesting 1st act. Sharp dialogue. Excellent acting. Provocative characters. Held my interest.

Don't see it if nudity & sexual situations bother you. Some inconsistencies and poor choices in the writing in act 2 are a letdown after a much better act 1

Stage Buddy
October 19th, 2017

"An excellent play by Adam Rapp, getting a remount in a very fine production, genuinely speaks to the nuances of our experiences, the volume of what we encompass, the peculiar range of our true feelings...It is exciting and dynamic to be with these two characters, both performed remarkably well, both written remarkably well, implicitly debating what the well written play can accomplish."
