I saw this in previews and it was too long by 45 minutes to an hour. The night I went it was 2 1/2 hours long, without intermission. In fact, it was apparent the performer ran out steam as the first half was rather physical with her running all over the stage. I understand completely the need for preview performances, but I was disappointed the actress had to stop so frequently to check her notes to see what the next line was. It was her play, after all. That, too, was a clue the play ran way too long. The play is a biography of the performer's life expressed through the paintings she makes on stage. (Personally, I always find it ingratiating to hear a middle-aged actress speak in that annoying squeal of a child.) It's obvious she is no painter. Each finished piece is horrible. This play needs a great deal of work. Perhaps it will get there by the time it officially opens.
