What I liked

Patching the old world with the new like a familiar quilt, HELLO WORLD is at once equal parts charm and challenge. The notion that we as the audience are alternating from our eyeballs to google glasses is alone worth the admission price. State of the Art tech married with the grace of seasoned Dell’Arte actors is mesmerizing.

What I didn't like

For those who value a clear and linear narrative, you may not see this as a strength in the show. But for me, a guy who places atmosphere above story, HELLO WORLD is a slice of hot rhubarb pie.

My overall impression

Overall, this show earns an easy A from me. In terms of new, cutting edge theatre, there’s not much out there. So when you find a piece as novel as HELLO WORLD you owe it to yourself to be there. At the very least you’ll be able to say, “I was there. I remember when…”
