MJK gave Hero's Welcome a 77

77
Surprising, Clever, Slow, Absorbing
June 29th, 2016

See it if you want to see Alan Ayckbourn still proving his talent for clever wordplay, sly plot twists & class system commentary 55yrs into his career

Don't see it if you have no patience for a slow Act 1; you expect a laugh-out-loud Ayckbourn comedy. (This is "comedy" in the Chekhovian or Shavian sense.)


CaseyK gave A Midsummer Night's Dream (Hamlet Isn't Dead) a 88

88
Great acting, Refreshing, Hilarious
June 26th, 2016

See it if you love a good Billy Shakes comedy. If Midsummer wasn't already the funniest WS play, it is now with this rendition & cast. Go! Now!

Don't see it if You don't like your classic English tea infused with bits of modernity. Alert: If you fear audience participation, sit in the 2nd row.


Petewk87 gave Hello Dillie! a 82

Relevant, Resonant, Funny
June 26th, 2016

See it if Intimate setting. Funny, witty and life-affirming anecdotes. Unsentimental and warm tone. Refreshingly crude and cynical.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy cabaret shows.


Nancy T gave An Act of God (Sean Hayes) a 89

89
Delightful, Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great writing
July 1st, 2016

See it if You enjoy an irreverent show cleverly interspersed with current events, and especially if you enjoy Sean Hayes

Don't see it if You can't laugh at religious subjects


Gil K gave A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center of New York City a 80

80
Quirky, Thought-provoking, Well written, Entertaining, Funny
June 29th, 2016

See it if this is less a dark comedy than snapshots of those moments when we, despite ourselves, laugh nervously in the face of impending tragedy

Don't see it if you don't appreciate lightheartedness around the issue of terminal illness and parent child disfunction.


Ninwall gave I'll Say She Is a 86

86
Entertaining, Clever, Zany, Funny, Delightful
June 26th, 2016

See it if If you ever wished you could have seen the Marx Bros in person, here's your chance. Actors really channel Groucho, Chico, Harpo- a fun time!

Don't see it if You require a polished production; needed more and better sets. But the actors were obviously having a ball & the fun & joy was infectious.


JoeyFranko gave Incognito a 89

89
Thought-provoking, Intense, Intelligent, Great writing, Absorbing
June 29th, 2016

See it if You're a fan of intense dramas that really make you think. This is some pretty intense down the rabbit hole kind of stuff.

Don't see it if You're looking for light fluffy entertainment that gives you all the answers or ANY of them for that matter. Some of these questions hurt.
