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.

Also I attended this show because I liked this troupe’s recent accounting o... Read more Read less

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.

Also "Where can I plug in my phone?"The man responsible for the "Funny Girl... Read more Read less

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

Great writing, Great singing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You like Gilligan’s Island, Waiting for Godot and the Twilight Zone. And you like to imagine what a world might looks like without

Don't see it if You want to see a superficial play and could care less about the human condition.

Also technology. It is the cat’s meow!

A bit mesmerizing, unique, Great acting, Fascinating and fun

See it if I stumbled upon it by accident, but it really moved me. It has original songs that I keep on humming, so I saw it again a week later. Lovely

Don't see it if it's a bit like a Becket play in the beginning. Like Waiting for Godot, so not for those who want something fast paced and contemporary

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.

Also What an incredibly clever and thought-provoking show this is. As you'r... Read more Read less

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

“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...
