Clever, Edgy, Original, Relevant, Thought-provoking

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.

Ambitious, Great staging, Relevant, Intelligent, Edgy

See it if you like multi-media performances and want to learn more about gentrification

Don't see it if intense lighting, sound, and projection cause you discomfort

"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.'"
