Interesting camerawork livefeed, Questionable acting/casting choices, Ultimately doesn't go anywhere, Soporific effect, Script circles back on itself

Ambitious, Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if you are intrigued by the avant-garde, not so obvious and enjoy off-off-off-off broadway productions.

Don't see it if you are confused by non-apparent themes and are expecting polished sets, performances, and the like.

Weak writing, Confusing, Slow, Overrated

See it if you have literally nothing else to do.

Don't see it if you like scripts that are engaging and written for intelligent adults

Disappointing, Cliched, Banal, Indulgent, Gratuitously homophobic

See it if You're willing to ignore bad acting by 33% of the cast just to see a hot guy's package in underwear; you want gratuitous homophobic language

Don't see it if You expect to hear lines delivered by people who sound like they speak the language. (The actress' intonation was confused and unnatural.)

"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 ...

"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...
