Ambitious, Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing, Great acting

See it if you like edgy, superbly-designed, well-directed work about young NYC middle-class women exploring pretty binary + hetero power structures

Don't see it if you want a nuanced exploration of being a young woman that feels like it isn't 2 steps behind intersectional feminism. CW: rape, assault

83
Funny, Riveting, Entertaining, Great staging, Quirky

See it if You enjoy a performance that utilizes lights, sounds, and (heightened) acting/singing to get a larger message across.

Don't see it if You are sensitive to topics of rape/sexual assault.

October 30th, 2018

"A slapdash lampoon of sexual trauma and noxious masculinity...The play wrings its laughs — and, in fairness, its horror — from just how vapid its characters are...What the show has going for it — aside from Ms. Kabashi’s savagely brittle performance and Ms. Cagianese’s deadpan bops — is its absurdist edginess. For a while, anyway...By the time the actresses are assaulting each other with an emergency light stick repurposed as a dildo, just what or who is being satirized?"

“Both excruciating and vigorously performed...The piffle on display here does exhibit craft, discipline, and structure but to little effect...The dialogue is nonsensical, vulgar, often coarse, and is supposed to be funny...Finn’s energized staging and utilization of the technical elements fulfills the author’s bleakly cartoonish vision...Worthy takes on themes such as sexual violence, feminism, and consumerism but they’re diminished by the shrill tone.”
