What I liked

The play is fantastic, taking advantage of story and performance in a way that only live theater can.
The cast is at once sharp and intoxicating, the music is extremely catchy, and the story is awesome and creatively told.

What I didn't like

My overall impression

Narcissus and Echo is as intellectual as it is playful. It’s a smart and timely reimagining of Ovid’s myth, expanding on the idea of vanity in the age of selfie-addled activism.
The performers are all so funny and engaging, making the moment the play’s message snaps into focus all the more harsh and powerful.
I love the choice to use bodies and movement in place of props, it makes sure not a drop of this cast’s stellar potential is wasted.
An added bonus is the music which has been stuck in my head for days- but I’ve got no complaints.

In Conclusion:

They have it all: cash, charm, and connections. Playing by different rules. So when a boy is found dead and two more stand to hang, justice is under the microscope and we have to ask: how did we get here, where are we going and do we have a choice?

If It Goes There

It's Saturday night, and Erik and Connor are looking to get laid. When they try their luck on a hook-up app, the night takes a turn they never expected and their true desires are revealed.
