Clever, Funny, Fluffy, Slow, Good acting

See it if Fractured, frantic & funny semi-drag show about various Streep movie personas locked in a reality/survivor type situation comedy Campy fun!

Don't see it if Viewing knowledge of Meryl's filmography a must for max enjoyment Plot - silly fun but often sloppy & indulgent Farmer's Violet Weston A+

Entertaining, Scrappy, Great acting, Great writing, Intelligent

See it if you're interested in really smart, scrappy downtown theater that has both popular appeal and experimental flair.

Don't see it if you have no interest in Meryl Streep. A lot of what makes this show work is the remarkable way these performers are able to capture her.

The New York Times
June 13th, 2017

“Built on a concept that could have made for an ace sketch but instead takes up nearly five derrière-numbing hours…The evening starts off promisingly, if a bit shambolically…A lot of time is taken up by in-jokes about the movies. Songs spoofing well-known tunes eat more precious minutes…This might make Andrew Neisler’s production, for the Tank, sound like a fun evening in the East Village, which is when I need to remind you that...it goes on for hours."
