Fun, Odd, Dizzying, Entertaining

See it if Two experimental works ... work! High energy and a bit dizzying. Not sure what to take away but definitely different and lively.

Don't see it if You don’t like experimental theater.

Zany, Surprising, Poetic, Confusing, Ebullient

See it if “The Bats” (Flea actors) bring terrific energy & expressiveness to these wild pieces. I enjoyed being lost in them & left on a high.

Don't see it if You want to understand everything going on. You don’t like weird performance art.

Intense, Thought-provoking, Dizzying, Confusing, Ambitious

See it if Mac Wellman is a theatre god! Both short experimental comedies exploit/exalt language in an absurdist homage (think Ionesco) Zany ensemble

Don't see it if Wellman is a theatre anti-christ! All incomprehensible drivel leading down rabbit holes Even being mercifully short can't help w/tangibility

Omg, what inspired madness! mac wellman channels ionesco and no doubt the latter is doing a tap-dance in his grave!!, Great acting, Dizzying, Clever

See it if you want to see cutting edge theater of the absurd performed with inspiring gusto and skill.

Don't see it if you are looking for normal. Exhilarating, but not always comprehensible.

Edgy, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if you like weird theatre of the absurd

Don't see it if you need to understand what's going on; you want your theater experience to be more than an hour (this clocked in just under)

Resonant, Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Clever

See it if Want to reflect on the existential fragile character of life. The playwright questions the basis for evil in our world.

Don't see it if You want passive entertainment.
