"Kilusan’s writing is part long-form poem, part political statement; it entertains with its witty metaphors while conveying the agony of homelessness, even if it is a little heavy-handed in its message…Puts on a vibrant low-tech projections display that creates the backdrop for the entire performance...Kilusan’s performing talents are best showcased in the dramatic switches he makes between his own voice and physicality, and the voice and physicality of his 'scene partner.'"

See it if See it if you enjoy spoken word, solo performances with minimal production. Also, you should be interested in the issue of gentrification.
Don't see it if you are not interested in the topic of gentrification in NYC neighborhoods.
See it if for a very talented dancer/performer with important/moving insights on gentrification/homelessness. The production design was nice.
Don't see it if subpar scripts and acting phase you. The verse was sloppy + the character acting was inconsistent. Needs more development, but worthwhile!
See it if if you care about how the world is evolving & if you want to see, through an artist's emotion, creativity at its most modern and impactful.
Don't see it if you don't like to feel emotion.
