We took public transit. Moderate walk from the U Street station, great for a nice day.

Loved our pretheater meal at Logan Tavern. Lots of great options in the neighborhood though.

while the acting was good and during the periods of silence the actors conveyed alot of information non-vebally. The periods of silence were almost unbearable.

In its effort at hyperrealism, the play slogs through the first act with an uncertainty at where it is heading. The second act is a masterwork. If you're concerned at intermission, fear not. You will be rewarded.

REALLY slow! It must be difficult for the actors in such an intimate venue to look out and see (and I counted) at least 8 people in the audience sleeping...half of which were seated in the front row!

Truly, a very boring experience, though the...continued

Description

The dingy back alley of a sleepy Vermont coffeehouse is home to trash bins, weathered patio furniture, and two affable slackers. KJ and Jasper fill their languid days with Bukowski references, low-key jam sessions, and ‘shroom-spiked tea. When a new employee—the smart but awkward teen Evan—attempts to evict them from their makeshift perch, KJ and Jasper recruit him as their unlikely summer protégé. Praised by _The Village Voice _as “an eloquent meditation on creativity and time’s passage,” this drama is a subtle ode to the truth and compassion hidden in unexpected people and places. From the critically acclaimed writer of Circle Mirror Transformation.
