Disappointing, Ambitious, Quirky, Dizzying, Relevant

See it if You like cheap, summer festivals, in regional-theatre-like spaces. Scheduled 4 shows; saw 3. I was 1 of 3 ppl, in the audience, for the 1st.

Don't see it if The space is not acoustic-friendly, hot, and seeing only a few audience members can take you out of it- all together. need progress n growth
