Clever, Great acting, Great singing, Great writing, Refreshing

See it if you appreciate energetic, youthful casts and vignettes examining relationships generally and how each relationship informs future ones.

Don't see it if you prefer one shorter, linear plot, elaborate sets/costumes/music, or no music, or intellectual, complex philosophical or historical theme.

Relevant, Entertaining, Funny, Thought-provoking, Fluffy

See it if You enjoy short scenes on a common theme. Some of the writing was excellent while other segments were just ok. Most of the actors were good

Don't see it if You need consistency and do not like a variety of writing/acting styles

Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Relevant, Clever

See it if You are interested in seeing short plays joined by a common theme. You like small, intimate productions that feel like labors of love.

Don't see it if You want a highly produced, cohesive show. These mini-plays are not related except by theme, which is interpreted differently for each play. Read more

Great acting, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if You enjoy short shows of varying quality with a central theme. Some are funny, some serious.

Don't see it if You'd rather more to a story than a 10ish minute skit can offer.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting

See it if A collection of short plays (comedy sketches, really) loosely tied together around the theme of rebounding from bad romances appeals to you.

Don't see it if You dislike the idea of short quick playlets strung together. Read more

Ambitious, Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky

See it if Like a variety of short plays exploring variations on the theme of rebound. Like David Ives plays. Like a showcase - bare bones but fun

Don't see it if Want a standard play with one narrative and full fledged set. Don't like experimental quirky off broadway. Read more

Theatre is Easy
May 13th, 2017

“With expectations of talented actors and clever writing, it did not disappoint…What I found most wonderful throughout the evening was that, despite the varying interpretations and the extremely diverse writing and directing styles, the production as a whole feels like a cohesive unit...The ideas and talent range here, but all in all, the night is a home run...Corny humor, profound ideas, beautiful singing, hysterical plots, and quality direction all contribute to an oasis of happiness."

“How spurned lovers rebound from ill-fated affairs was the theme this year, one handled deftly by some of the writers involved and used as a loose pretext, or downright ignored, by some others. It was hard to see any connection to the evening’s theme in the cryptic ‘Robert and Lucy’…'Antares Returning' is both improbable and clichéd…‘All is Bright’ concluded the series and offered the most nuanced material…It is funny, absurd, sorrowful and touching.”
