My girlfriend had heard about this from a podcast, we came to NYC for her birthday and decided to see the show. We had a fun time. The plot is complex, but if you follow the dialog, it all makes sense by the end of...More

There are lots of great discounts for this show on TDF/todaytix/TKTS booth, so it is certainly worth it at a lower price. There are not many thriller shows playing, so if you want a taste of a new genre of theatre, even if the production...More

This show is absolutely completely impossible to figure out. When you get home and do a google search for an explanation it then and only then will make any sense. It is ingeniously written in many regards but is completely unfair to the audience in...More

I'm embarrassed that I actually stayed to the end. This show was SO bad. I kept waiting for an "Ah ha!" moment of brilliance like at the end of "The Sixth Sense" when it all comes together, makes sense and my jaw hits the floor....More

I'd have to agree, this one you can skip. It's been playing for 30 years... no idea how. The theater was shabby and dirty, the acting wasn't bad but the play was bad. Lead actress talked super fast and hardly let her costars get their...More

The theater was 1/3 full. A warning? I think I would like to read this play and see if it might work as a community theater piece. I know actresses who could be more diabolical and sensuous. This cast was phoning it in, marking the...More

The play was truly amazing. Got me interested from the beginning until the end. Lots of details to understand the twist on the plot which was interesting and fun. Recommend it. Great actors, storyline and scenography. Go see it!

iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
