Indulgent, Meta, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Unpolished

See it if You are a writer (especially a writer who procrastinates), and don't mind a very meta play about writing a play, plus unlikable characters.

Don't see it if You want likable characters or a sensible plot, or don't want to sit through very long and somewhat tedious monologues.

Funny, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if you enjoy a play that doesn't take itself too seriously; some over-the-top dramatic humor that mostly works

Don't see it if you want traditional plot development; looking for a big production

Clever, Funny, Quirky, Self-referential, Dialogue-driven

See it if you like fast but eloquent back-and-forth patter w/ lots of entertainment industry humor & the occasional self-referential Brechtian device.

Don't see it if you don't like dialogue-heavy plays with spare scenery and staging.

Cliched, Funny, Disappointing

See it if you like-stories on writing and writer's block-over the top comedy-contrived situations-self referencing plays-odd couple type comedies

Don't see it if you want-character development-three dimensional characters-a traditional ending (end drags & is predictable but it teased several times)

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Excruciating, Indulgent

See it if you enjoy when the supporting characters are more interesting than the main characters, or if you like shows that have both comedy and drama

Don't see it if you'd rather avoid annoying, unlikeable characters who don't appreciate what they have and fight over a woman like she's a prize to be won

Stuck with me, Clever staging, Sporadically clever wiring, Mostly contrived, Uneven acting

See it if You want to see a production that makes good use of its bare bones set. Also if you like stories about writers with writers block.

Don't see it if Long drawn out dialogue easily frustrates you and you're someone would prefer a brisk breezy 75 min show
