it was amazing

Terrific play, sharp writing. I saw the film years ago and liked it. The play is funnier, more madcap, frantic, caffeinated. For a while I worried that it wouldn't move me, but in the end it really did. And perhaps the best thing about it is that I can't quite name the feelings it evokes and can't say exactly why it moves me. I have a feeling that this play will grow richer with multiple readings.

Favorite lines (from the character PAUL):

"The imagination says listen to me. I am your darkest voice. I am your 4 a.m. voice. I am the voice that wakes you up and says this is what I'm afraid of. Do not listen to me at your peril.... The imagination is not our escape. On the contrary, the imagination is the place we are all trying to get to."

Amen.
