Absorbing, Entertaining, Clever, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if You love a play of ideas that always keeps you guessing, a show whose big, dark and wonderfully realized themes are never compromised.

Don't see it if You need to see conventional stories told conventionally. This play decides to tell a story about technology by (partly) using technology.

Entertaining, Funny, Quirky

See it if You are okay with simple staging. You are not looking for something deep and moving. You want to laugh. You like an unusual ending.

Don't see it if You need a big production. You need to see something deep and moving. You are too serious about what plays you see.

Theatre is Easy
October 11th, 2016

"It’s clear that Mesri is more interested in using this play as a scaffold for an experiment in performativity than he is in its dramaturgy, or even in getting the audience invested in his characters, no matter how charmingly they are presented...It’s all a bit exhausting, and perhaps a disservice to the play...For maximum enjoyment, 'Storage Locker' should be judged less as a work of storytelling than as an experiment meant to expand one's idea of what it means to perform for an audience."

Theater Pizzazz
October 11th, 2016

"Julián Mesri’s direction pieces together the puzzle of juggling alternate universes beautifully in order to bring obsession and greed typically associated with materialism and power to the forefront. So much so that the audience is forced to literally question what is real and what is the play’s truth on numerous levels...The three-actor-ensemble exhibits an extraordinary chemistry and a palpable intensity that inherently makes the play work."

"The production resembles nothing so much as a train wreck. You are horrified watching it, glad you’re not involved, but you can’t walk away because the play is 70 minutes without an intermission...The 'surprise' twist at the very end that comes out of nowhere and has nowhere to go? That belongs more to an M. Night Shyamalan/Disney movie mash-up...Bafflingly, the director Julian Mesri, has decided that the fix for what ails 'Storage Locker' is to turn it into an actual reality TV show."

"Director Julián Mesri invests the script with a tempo that draws the audience in...Stolzer’s script, with an ample amount of intrigue, and Mesri’s keen staging keep everything moving smoothly until the last five minutes, when it all just sputters...Even the actors, who until this point were spot-on, appear lost...For 65 minutes, or 92% of the time, 'Storage Locker' and its quirky, delicious contents deliver."

"Though the stage looks as drab, dirty, and cluttered as the city dump, tension builds from the start and never lets up...The ensemble cast is very good in bringing this desperation to life...Julián Mesri directs with a sure hand, maximizing the claustrophobic set by his clever use of other areas of the space, such as the sound booth, and his addition of multi-media. A solid job all around."
