I saw it at the Gene Frankel downtown, before it transferred. I personally loved it. It's a bizarre little play, but I thought it was hilarious and insightful. Jason O'Connell is giving a powerhouse performance.

What do you mean “bizarre”?

As it has received mixed reviews, people may find the 2min31sec Youtube video helpful (comes up 4th in search for me). I know it helped me make my decision as to whether or not I'd want to see 2 hours 30 minutes of this.

agree with JBroadway, saw it in May, bizarre, hilarious and insightful, and you can tell it's a Vonnegut work

 

O-ho the Wells Fargo wagon is a-comin' down the street.
Oh please let it be for me!

I saw this tonight via an unexpected front row seat. I admire Voneggut and have enjoyed Jason O'Connell's New York appearances immensely for some time now but WOW, this performance is stunning. Solid ensemble all around and a nice write up in the NYTimes this weekend too, https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/09/theater/kurt-vonnegut-happy-birthday-wanda-june-wheelhouse.html
