Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Funny

See it if You are a fan of history, the Bronx, and like a melodramatic type of play told with great acting and staging.

Don't see it if Just see it! Warning....if you are turned off by flying food, stay away. Sitting in the first row is risky!

Absorbing, Intelligent, Profound, Great acting, Relevant

See it if you appreciate classic American drama a la Sam Shepard, Arthur Miller, Edward Albee. This is an off-Broadway gem with superb acting!

Don't see it if you're looking for something light and fluffy. There are plenty of laughs, but serious themes lurk underneath.

Absorbing, Intense, Relevant

See it if you think 30 year old plays can be as relevant today as when they were written. A plus for the minmal sets and gratis wine and snacks.

Don't see it if you don't like history or the events which inspired the news. Or if you need a bigger theater and ellaborate sets

Absorbing, Relevant, Ambitious, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you like well made plays with strong monologs. Set on a night when the world appeared to be ending makes it relevant for lots of us today.

Don't see it if violence on stage upsets you. The characters believe the world is ending which releases a lot of truth and pain with some strong physicality

Village Voice
November 18th, 2016

"As destruction comes to seem more certain, the characters aim their worries at each other, revealing long-boiling resentments, particularly the strain and abuse that defines the central marriage. Director Joe Battista and the committed cast let the drama run excitingly wild — by the end, the floor is coated in the spaghetti and milk from a dinner gone wrong, the remnants of a family in pieces but still pushing on."
