What I liked

Saw this one at the preview.
This show has serious themes but doesn’t take itself too seriously. You can analyze the analogies, or you can sit back and enjoy the jokes.
Tightly directed, with excellent performances from all four actors. The show moves at a quick pace and would be worth seeing a second time to catch all the references.

What I didn't like

My bias is to be more interested in stories with at least some female characters. I understand that didn’t make sense here, since it’s a structurally-faithful parody of a classic theatre work featuring four male characters. But I always have to ask: where are the women?

My overall impression

Tight show, with clever dialogue and specific characterizations that will amuse even the casual U2 fan. And the casual Beckett fan. If you’re both, this is the show for you!
