Spiegelworld’s latest offering is a faux-educational experience that promises to get everyone in the audience laid.

‘Risqué’ show 'Never Sleep Alone' feels too safe on the Strip

February 10th, 2016

Spiegelworld’s latest offering is a faux-educational experience that promises to get everyone in the audience laid.

  • “It’s an experience that cannot be reduced to a sound bite.”

  • What is essential for one person to communicate with another?

  • What you shouldn’t miss from local theater troupes in January.

  • Weekly theater critic Jacob Coakley picks his favorite shows of 2015.

  • The program was founded in 1976 on the (still) radical idea of treating kids like adults. "We don’t just train theater artists—we train citizens.”

  • An unnamed woman struggles to balance drone piloting and home life in the one-woman show.

  • It’s not all bad. Cast members deliver vividly.

  • While the laughs are big in this little production, the story it tells proves that dress up is so much more serious than play.

  • While the current production offers admirable execution, from acting and directing to sound design, the play itself seems to be what sinks.

  • Both pieces place an unusual emphasis on the act of communal storytelling, the idea of many people coming together to create a narrative.

  • The "loopy little musical-comedy gem" was named Best Musical at both the New York and Hollywood Fringe Festivals.

  • The play is powerful and lingering, managing to dissect race with humor and bleakness.
