Absorbing, Dizzying, Edgy, Clever, Quirky

See it if you have a high tolerance for theater experimentation -- & only if you have.

Don't see it if you want to see a play with dialogue throughout & recognizable characters in dramatic situations. Read more

Confusing, Slow, Disappointing, Great acting

See it if Its a very different pick to see, the acting is very good.

Don't see it if The show is good but it very slow and at part boring, for I need no idea what was happening.

Proving the point of pointlessness, 30 minutes = 1st intelligible word, 70 minutes = 1st use of odets' text, Waiting for godo-dets without words, Totally experimental

See it if you enjoy 3 actors rise from pile of dirt for 40 minutes, vomit regularly, then start speaking Odets text about 70 minutes in without irony?

Don't see it if you have no patience 4 experimentally posing performance pieces or zombie theater where zombies heal themselves to eventually speak cogently Read more

Ambitious, Confusing, Edgy, Thought-provoking, Very unusual extra avant-garde non-verbal meta-phys ed dark performance against the patriarchy, i think.

See it if You are open to a non verbal physically expressed dark vision of existence. Bored at first, I became mesmerized and am pondering still.

Don't see it if You have no patience for the really unusual and unfamiliar. A few people left but most stayed to applaud loud and long at the end.

Disappointing, Slow, Mysterious, Moody

See it if you like performance art, more questions than answers, committed actors.

Don't see it if you want a story and action, to understand what the cast is saying literally & figuratively. Read more
