See it if you love theater that makes bold use of a full range of resources to stimulate the senses as only a live event can.
Don't see it if for you a play is a chronological sequence of scenes depicting realistic situations with characters speaking & acting realistically.
See it if you’d like a masterclass in sound and light. Some really beautiful moments; not really a play, everything emphasizes the tech
Don't see it if you don’t know Stein and Toklas, don’t want to wear headphones, want a plot. Story is confusing and disjointed. Audience was theater people
"Creates a simultaneous sense of dislocation and intimacy...Stein is a great choice for a sound-heavy show because she was a most musical writer...The show liberally borrows from horror tropes...we visualize something gruesome, and that is what lingers in the memory, anchored by one simple, queasy-making sound effect...As flawed as these two shows are, it is refreshing to see them try to use technology to refresh theatricality."
