What I liked

Each actor was completely committed and present from the very start and never let go of the audience’s attention. Throughout every blow and jab and olive branch and betrayal, you could feel the audience was as riveted to every interaction as if they were watching any sports game. With no idea how this painfully raw “last day of our relationship is” would end, the audience’s connection with this piece was palpable. Incredible work by all.

What I didn't like

Absolutely nothing. Take it wherever this piece wants to go!

My overall impression

The greatest challenge for any show is how to be incredibly relatable to an audience of completely randomly selected people. The answer is always to tell as real a story as you can and hope that you land on some universal truth along the way. This piece hits that universal truth button no less than a dozen times because the story it tells is so raw and vulnerable, you cannot help but see yourself and your own experiences in each interaction between this couple.
