Spirited, Dark, Challenging, Thought-provoking, Disturbing

See it if Youthful cast brings artistic energy to Vonnegut's dark dystopia. Individual life vs. society; sterility vs. "mess"; biting propaganda.

Don't see it if You don't want to be challenged w/ difficult disturbing material. Slow in spots. Makes you think about death, sacrifice & "saving the world"

Ambitious, Great design, Dystopian, Intense, Dizzying

See it if You enjoy dystopians & Kurt Vonnegut, the set is beautiful & the cast commits fully, if you enjoy physical theatre this is for you

Don't see it if Some themes of suicide that you should be aware of and loud sounds, if you are not into dystopians/SciFi
