Edgy, Quirky, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if you like absurd relationships that people maintain where one is a happy loser, one is getting a career step forward and one plays them both.

Don't see it if you want clarity: setting is today (video at end is dated 2010/ten years ago) but old cassette tape recorder and outdated phone are props.

Edgy, Grating, Mediocre acting, Banal

See it if interested in how 3 people, one time high school friends, differently experience a long ago occurrence; small doses of humor

Don't see it if you're looking for characters you care about; uneven acting; I know there must be a reason for Amy's ridiculous wardrobe but it eludes me. Read more

Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if you want to see a play that deals (not very subtly) with the subtlies of acquantance rape and screwed up relationships

Don't see it if you want to see great acting. Except for Leila Berkane's "Amy", the lack of experience showed. A few important staging errors Read more

Incoherent message, Confusing character motivations, Tedious dialog at times, Interesting topic, Fairly good acting

See it if you like plays that focus on characters traits, motives & interactions, the topic of sexual violence & good acting.

Don't see it if you dislike characters repeatedly arguing, whose motivations, in one case, are not realistic & a "message" that is unclear.

Thought-provoking, Relevant, Absorbing

See it if you want to see a play that deals with possible sex abuse and long kept feelings that can fester over time.

Don't see it if you want to see a play that is tightly directed and where the dialogue moves along. Read more

Indulgent, Somewhat claustrophobic, could've been moreso, Edgy, Game cast of '3' makes u quickly forget film cast of starry uma thurman & ethan hawke, Great acting

See it if I never saw the film (or don't remember it) but StephenBelber's script seems more suited to the Stage than the Big Screen so fans might like

Don't see it if If U prefer large cast shows (only 3 here) or grow weary of watchin a director trying to maneuver actors in a tiny space strewn w/ beer cans Read more
