Eccentric, Engaging, Intriguing

See it if you like when a script tries to say new things in new ways.

Don't see it if you want a drawing room comedy or kitchen sink drama: this play is eccentric. Read more

Far-reaching, Intelligent, Great singing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if Carny performers time shift from 1933 anachronistically contemplating the existential. "We're two baloney slices away from the bread lines."

Don't see it if Heady: "Like Kafka, I look to find the 'yes' buried under the 'no." To complicate the Now, a Wall Streeter and a Normandy soldier combine. Read more

Quirky, Indulgent, Slow, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if Some good acting. Has some good things the plot.

Don't see it if It does not focus on any one thing and as a result is all over the place. If you do not like depressing songs. Needs to be reworked and refo

Clever, Great acting, Enchanting, Profound, Thought-provoking

See it if you're intrigued by performance art that's surreal, thought-provoking, open to interpretation, and incredibly moving.

Don't see it if you're into things that are more mainstream and straight-forward. It's also much too deep for small children. Read more

Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever, Absorbing

See it if I loved this play! It is a beautiful mix of music, humor and charm. It’s a metaphor of what life means today and never knowing what

Don't see it if it might bring tomorrow. Highly Recommend

Unique, Great acting, Exquisite, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if I've never seen anything like it. It is surreal but deeply moving. It has original songs that are both catchy and metaphysical. Haunting

Don't see it if if you only like literal things, I guess, but one learns a lot from the show. Very literate

"The philosophical mumbo-jumbo gets thick and preposterous fast. One dimensional characters recite lines meant to be reflective but just sound banal...If this were farce rather than deadly serious, perhaps these stereotypes might be worth a chuckle...Director Sheila Xoregos has this cast playing this as serious drama. I would rethink the plan completely...Complete misfire of a play."

“The new play is aspirational, captivating but ultimately flawed...The play is so full of tropes, cliches and ideas that it never settles on a style or approach...The work is reminiscent in style to plays at the height of the theatre absurd movement...But tossed into the meal are depression style songs...All fine...But they only to further confuse the palate...The performers are all excellent...But this work needs lots of editing and focusing and decision making.”

“Schulman asks that we a world without time, into a funny/sad place of surreality, touched by lingo from the early part of the 20th century...Xoregos had a big job, taking a script with a Beckett tone, extending it with ‘show biz’ attributes, and moving philosophy into entertaining dialogue...Xoregos welcomes the text with reverence...She’s faithful to the word, and will be remembered for that. What a gift she’s given Schulman.”
