What I liked

I felt very connected to the story, and there are some really terrific performances — each actor is very watchable throughout, and the ensemble really puts a lot into their performances even though there isn’t much “character” to draw from. As previously mentioned, the humor and craft of the show is excellent and very fun to watch.

What I didn't like

There were some preview-show lumps that we experienced, but honestly, I couldn’t really say much else. You should really go see this show.

My overall impression

Drew and the crew do a great job of capturing the frustration, heartbreak, and misery that come with being a young and creative person trying to have it all. It’s fun, with a very distinct set of humor, and the crew did a really great job of balancing that humor with its more serious themes. Plus, the stagecraft itself courtesy of Natasha Gualy was really fun and creative — bargain-bin budgeting at its finest.
