When talented 20-something Danica moves to New York City to pursue a career as a musician, she assumes things will get off without a hitch. However, she soon begins finding mannequin body parts inexplicably hidden around her new apartment. Unsure if these sinister gifts are the work of a stalker or her own slowly slipping mind, she keeps the secret to herself and does her best to slog onward. As her dread mounts and Danica slowly begins to unravel, her friends become increasingly concerned until things come to a head-- literally.

Slow, Disappointing

See it if If you want to see new artists and new works. As story that is not good.

Don't see it if A show where actors nervously put forth their lines. Lighting and miscues all night.

Cool premise very poorly executed, Short scenes w/many scene-changes, Uneven prop use & lighting miscues, Very weak acting / mixed-up dialogue, Ambitious / disappointing

See it if ...just don't. Hard to sit thru 90min's of young actors nervously feeling their way thru a script & rehearsed staging, missing obvious cues.

Don't see it if you need a break from Theater for the New City, especially The Cabaret hole-in-the-wall. They couldn't even spend some money on a playbill.

Also Seriously? No program/playbill of any kind?... Read more Read less
