Review by SAMANTHA FIGUEROA

June 18, 2018

What I liked

I loved the intimate space of the theater and the expert use of a minimal set and cast. I also liked the moments when they acknowledged their play without quite breaking the fourth wall. I loved the songs and the plays on different musical styles. I would totally buy a CD of the soundtrack!

What I didn't like

I think it was very well done and would love to see another run of it performed. :-)

My overall impression

This show was wonderful. I went in without any knowledge of the shows premise. I was a little nervous at the disclaimer but started laughing immediately. Despite it’s brevity this play captured a lot about issues with suicide and seeking help. I think they did an amazing job of tackling such a heavy subject with laughter while still being compassionate and thorough in portraying the emotional ups and downs around seeking help.
