In the beginning, we were offended with the language. As the show progressed, I felt the language just had to be as it was. The actors did an excellent job. The theme, although dark, was really food for thought.

Very good show. This is one of my favorite movies, so it was difficult for me not to compare, but I thought the actors did a great job. The only thing I didn't particularly care for were the monologues at the end, I don't remember them from the...continued

Great writing and acting; always a joy to see Neil LaButte. This was a very powerful play and the new venue was wonderful as was the stage setting.

I think that this was mend and written to be a screenplay , and it shows, no matter how good the actors where (and they were pretty good) there was a huge disconnect... I cant believe I will say that (never did in my life) the movie is a must...continued

This show highlights some of the worst in what we humans are. Until nearly the end, it left me with hope that good would triumph. But that hope was dashed in the end. The acting was very good, the set was outstanding. For the most part the...continued

A play about the sociopath in the next cubicle. One of the most disturbing works I've seen in years, sticks with you for a long time after it's over. Parts of it are laugh-out-loud funny, but not what I would call a comedy, black or otherwise. ...continued

Phenomenal world premier performance and show! Cannot wait to see this hit bigger stages and eventually trickle down to the community stage.

Excellent show. Also, the understudy for the lead girl was on and she was SUPERB.

The ACTING was SUPERB, the only thing I hated was that they cut the air off and it was hot as hell. I felt so bad for the actors which you could tell were feeling the heat worst than the audience. Other than that it was a great show I would...continued

The play itself is disturbing, but I knew that: it's Neil LaBute. The performances and the set were absolutely spectacular.

A fine performance by the two main actors. Raw and intense but great acting all around.

So glad I went to this show on a free Thursday night. Fantastic script, directing, acting, sound design. I'll be thinking about the LaBute's themes in this piece for a long time. It would be great to see this again and again.

Some of the best acting I've seen live. Kudos to the amazing cast and to the creative set designers. I highly recommend this disturbing but thought provoking piece. Chad comes off as an evil sociopathic character, yet the idea of manipulating...continued

Thoroughly enjoyed the play. Neil Labute's command of language is fascinating to me! I never felt removed from any scene, every bit of dialogue felt real and genuine. I loved how drastically different each character was and each actor's commitment...continued
