In the New York Times, critic Charles Isherwood called this Annie Baker joint about a group of young men hanging out at a Vermont coffee shop “a gentle and extraordinarily beautiful play” that was also “inordinately delicate.” Translation: You’ll either fall asleep while watching it or spend three or four hours after the show trying to convince your friends that they were idiots for falling asleep while watching it. Whatever your views on Baker’s extremely good but extremely subtle storytelling, it’ll be interesting to see if David Hsieh can draw out the nuanced acting he needs from the three young actors tasked to deliver Baker’s mumblecore lines—Alan E. Garcia, Curtis Gehlhausen, and Cooper Harris-Turner. If he can, ReAct Theatre's staging could shape up to be an under-the-radar summer hit.
