Intelligent, Disappointing

See it if Marital breakdown, aburdist-style writing

Don't see it if Sometimes the approach worked, sometimes it seemed posed and got in the way of connecting with the emotional landscape.

Theatre is Easy
August 23rd, 2016

"A good as the acting is, 'The Night of Blue and Salt' does not have enough people working on it. The story is able to strike a chord because of its motifs, but the final execution does not live up to what could be a heartbreaking, even phenomenal, show. Still, the small team behind this piece are a force to be reckoned with."

The Highlighter
August 17th, 2016

"The whole thing begins quite quickly to feel cliche, and thoroughly blurs the line between Theater of the Absurd and simply unoriginal…It’s all melodramatic in a boring way, broken up with quotes by Virginia Woolf and statistics about hyposexual desire disorder. One wants to enjoy it, and almost can, but the framing of Theater of the Absurd makes it hard to tell if we’re supposed to enjoy it at all or if the sense of mild confusion and impression of ham-handedness was the playwright’s intent."
