See it if you want to see a strong opening monlogue. The play has a great start, then fades.
Don't see it if you want more action and variation in staging.
See it if you don't mind a promising but "underbaked" play. Prologue was best, clearest part. Playwright must clarify & foreshadow events & motives.
Don't see it if you're expecting a show about what a writing center actually DOES. BTW, the character "Gigi" may have unrealistic, unexpressed expectations.
"‘The Thing That Never Happened’ is a lamentation on hookup culture that means, but fails, also to be a story about putting female friends first. Ms. Gelfman is a recent college graduate, and this is a very young play."
"This new play perfectly captures the common struggles of a college-aged woman…The writing is witty and clever…If at times the main plot becomes a bit unclear, Gelfman's commentary regarding the absurdity of hook-up culture and many young people’s fear of love is smart and refreshing. All four female actresses bring stellar performances to the stage as they balance moments of serious focus with sidesplitting comedy...A hilarious look at the values of friendship."
