I thought it was really good writing - very funny and thought-provoking. Definitely worthwhile!

After reading the playbill later I realized the play had deeper implications but I was happy to enjoy it without that knowledge at the time!

Very interesting story about life, reflections on one's past life and if we have the power to change. Always enjoy the option for a discussion with other audience members after a Steppenwolf play.

I liked it and my wife loved it. It has a great premise and is well acted. Go.

Description

Bee is a young woman who believes she has the uncanny ability to see the future, and maybe even alter it.  With the click of a television remote, we loop through time in this dark, funny world premiere about a woman bent on reinventing her own destiny—and possibly the world’s.

Bruce Norris returns to Steppenwolf with a sharp, new play following his critically acclaimed off-Broadway hit Clybourne Park.  He joins forces once again with Tony Award-winning ensemble member and director Anna D. Shapiro – the team that brought Steppenwolf audiences powerful hits including The Unmentionable, The Pain and the Itch, __Purple Heart and The Infidel__.

Shapiro won a 2008 Tony Award for her direction of Steppenwolf’s critically-acclaimed production of August: Osage County.  Other Steppenwolf directing credits include Up as well as The Crucible, Three Days of Rain, Drawer Boy, I Never Sang for My Father and Man from Nebraska.
