What I liked

It’s hard to pick which of the plays were my favorite. Though the entire hour was enjoyable, there were several that really captured my attention. I loved the absurdest opening and then really have to congratulate the playwright who wrote “Cohen in the Afterlife” which was beautifully acted, directed and written. In fact, there were several really good pieces about the afterlife and also the greed you leave behind. the musical interludes were a clever devise for transitions.

What I didn't like

A couple of the plays could have been fleshed out a little more.

I don’t know why the musician didn’t just stay on stage instead of having to slip off for every scene.

My overall impression

a very successful evening of original theatre.
