Confusing, Dizzying, Disappointing, Original, Profound

Confusing, Excruciating, Indulgent

See it if I couldn't wait for the show to end. Don't bother. I feel badly because the actors were talented people but this piece was awful.

Don't see it if Just don't see it. The creaking stage was annoying. Having no house lights on when you enter the theatre, can't read the playbill.

Confusing, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if You like science/NASA, don't mind repetitive songs, like small or experimental productions

Don't see it if You are easily confused by weird storytelling (I still have no idea what it was about), don't like overly loud noise

Clever, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Profound, Ambitious

See it if This was such an enjoyable experience. The company is excellent and we don't get to see this kind of stories often. Loved it!

Don't see it if Sunday parking is a bit tight so leave early. I made it just in time. I'm glad I did!
