Strange--inventive--Glad I saw it.

What a weird show. Throughout the play I felt a bit lost, but I think that the show is purposefully ambiguous.
The play is creative--It has a structure and a design that is very unique. I think that because the play keeps taunting the audience and randomly disturbing the conventions of theater and frequently breaking the fourth wall, the audience becomes a willing participant in the Dada experience. I must admit that after seeing Zurich Plays I was intrigued enough to do hour's worth of internet research on the Dadaists.
The performances were spectatular. All the actors were fully committed, especially Marc Cram, who amidst the madness, gently inspires sympathy.
I would see it again to catch what I missed the first time, and because there's nothing else like it. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
