What I liked

Swipe Right was fun, fast-paced, and full of hilarious moments that are immediately recognized by anyone who’s opened a dating app. And if you haven’t, here’s a primer on all the absurdity, hope, and disappointment found online. The songs stayed in my head long after the show, the actors were more than up to the task, and the writing throughout was the perfect balance of emotionally devastating and completely silly.

What I didn't like

It’s only 30 minutes, so it’s hard to ask for much more, but I could have spent longer in the app, meeting the rogue’s gallery of potential matches.

My overall impression

Catchy music, talented performers, and a witty book that skewers modern dating.
