Around The Town Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...How different a person would you be if there was just a slight change in what you thought was real? It’s a question that only becomes more pressing as artificial intelligence advances and opaque algorithms dominate how we perceive the world and communicate with others. In 2012, British titan of the theatre Caryl Churchill examined that theme in a vast but succinct series of vignettes called Love and Information."

Chicago Theatre Review - Somewhat Recommended

"...A hidden trap in any drama is that the water level in a dam has to rise before it overflows; it can't just be constantly overflowing. A burst of emotion is only cathartic when we get to see the swelling and suppression leading up to it. Without the struggle to remain calm, the calamity is just exhausting instead exhilarating. If the production seeks to leave the audience members with the symptom of media overload (a bloated feeling with a sour stomach from too much bad coffee, and a headache from a stiff neck resulting from too much time looking at a screen), then they certainly provide that. But if they sought to also inspire hope for a cure, then they forgot to suggest how we could more healthily incorporate media/technology/information into our lives."

Sophie Vitello - Highly Recommended

"...It is like a tightly scripted improv show, packed with familiar personalities, some of them offbeat, playing roles that could share the stage in Lily Tomlin’s “Search for Intelligent Life in the Universe.” McKean’s accomplishment becomes clearer when you realize Love and Information brings us more than 100 sometimes loosely identified characters, mostly appearing as couples or trios, in a series of short scenes that end in blackouts."
