Didn't love this play as much as the two other Will Eno ones I've seen--subject matter wasn't as personally interesting. Worth it, though, to see Tony Hale...masterful work. Worth springing for the Orchestra seats so you can see him up close.

Sometimes it was difficult to hear what the performers were saying.

The message was vague even with an amazing cast. Really not sure what exactly was the goal other than be present in the moment. The ending really made the show.

Loved the actor, loved some of the themes, didn't hold together well on night of or next day. Was OK value for $12.

Fabulous play. Very uplifting. Well worth seeing again . He is such a good actor. I forgot all about his character in VEEP.

I think this play is what you call absurdist, like, "Waiting for Godot." But I recall liking Vladimir and Estragon, but this play's guy, I just had no interest in. So, I left towards the end.

My boyfriend--older guy--really really enjoyed it...continued

Terrible show, but fine acting. The show was so short that they had to add a short skit in the beginning to fill out the evening. Not sure why ACT picked this play to present. Tony Hale did the best he could with mediocre and puzzling material.

Tony Hale is super in this portrayal of a man gradually losing his life, but to the end trying to make meaning out of it.

I saw the show in previews. I assumed it was a British comedy since the title made me think of the whimsical rhyme, "Wakey, Wakey, Eggs and Baccy." It wasn't. The description should be more straightforward. It's merits would be more obvious. It is...continued

While the play was occasionally funny, definitely quirky, and Tony Hale was very good in this challenging piece, it was mostly impossible to hear the subtleties of either play from the Balcony. We would never attend another show where the only...continued

This is not drama, or theater. I’d edit the script heavily and publish it in print, maybe. It’s a vague self help guide, poorly written dharma talk as is. If you’re going to take on the BIG questions about human nature and existentialism you’ve...continued

The worst play I’ve ever seen. People were leaving in the middle and at some point a loud recording startled several audience members awake. I’m pretty sure there’s no intermission because no one would come back.

It was a bit boring and difficult to follow from the start. My wife and I left after awhile. Seemed unrehearsed and scattered.

Terrible. We went because it was Tony Hale. So glad we didn’t pay full price. Too experimental.

The usher in the Balcony who escorted me to my seat had more spark and originality than this play.

Tom Hale is not at fault.
A good performance of nothing.

The well known actor did an excellent job with poor material. The writing felt contrived and self-indulgent and while the format creativity could led to interesting results it never brought me us in emotionally. The worst show I've seen at ACT...continued
