Arch, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Monotone, Smart set

See it if you'd like to witness a smart young writer’s one-of-a-kind take on the world—& a set designer that realizes that world on a shoestring.

Don't see it if you have no patience with plays that seem to inhabit a somewhat alternative reality to our world. Read more

Clever, Enchanting, Great staging, Quirky, Intense

See it if a beautiful production with strange happenings suggestive of metaphors or allegories appeal. Great costumes and "underwater" choreography

Don't see it if on stage violence distresses you. It is done symbolically but is what it is.

Clever, Quirky, Slow, Funny

See it if Not a deep story, light and a little funny.

Don't see it if If you want serious show,

Has possibilities, Quirky, Different, Interesting staging, Great cast

See it if support new writing from new voices, support women's playwriting, clever suggested underwater staging, to theorize when death is okay

Don't see it if no interest in new work, women's voices, festival stagings, new ideas, alligators or mermaids

Too abstract but appreciate the cast, Confusing, Too long

See it if You enjoy silly experimentation or if you know someone involved in the production or if you want to debate what it's about with a friend

Don't see it if You want to see something that makes it's point or makes sense Read more

Disappointing, Excruciating, Insipid, Quirky, Amateurish

See it if you love sparkly leggings and shimmery beaded curtains more than anything else in the world.

Don't see it if you want to encourage experimental theater - a low budget does not excuse the poor writing and execution

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky

See it if You like small new plays. You have ever been to magnolia gardens in Florida.

Don't see it if You like plays with big sets. You can’t sit through 90 minutes. You can’t use your imagination.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Great acting, Promising, Thought-provoking

See it if you like mermaid-related themes, as this is a glimpse in the alternative world of mermaid performers- & seeing the pros & cons of being one.

Don't see it if you expect the mermaid-human love story cliche. It's more horrific than romantic but still worth seeing for the lovely mermaids & their act. Read more
