    ★★½

    Review by Zeynep Pınar Uçar.

    Review by Zeynep Pınar Uçar.

    Bo Burnham describes the show as “whatever this is” right at the beginning and it’s nothing short of a perfect description. It’s not a musical, a series or a film. It’s nothing that fits under the conventional labels. It is simply the most striking showcase of how the art of storytelling had to face an inevitable change with the pandemic as everything in our lives did. Technically, it’s nothing more than a camera, tripod, some…
