Some very poetic language, but not much of a story. Feels 98% appropriated from Suzan-Lori Parks.
No shortage of melodrama. The constant VO narration tells more than shows. There are some interesting personal speeches. Plenty of fantasy “billionaires and castles” stuff.
Well done. Interesting forms. Good subject matter.
Total crap. Far from somehow satirizing whitebread American suburbia, 70 minute plays like BLUEBERRY TOAST are in fact the thing itself – bland, derivative monoculture. Pretty typical of Yale Drama School as well. The best way to answer what this play is about: “It’s about how much money I spent on graduate school, and now I am supposed to write plays.”
Nothing there. The perils of really existing realism on stage.
$42 on TKTS. Unwatchable.
An epic tragedy. Very interested to see this performed at Soho Rep next week. Beautiful, spare dialogue. Lots of poetry. Great slang. I like the non-realistic atmosphere.
