Six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald and Tony and Oscar nominee Michael Shannon bring new life to the bruised dreamers of Terrence McNally's timely and timeless romance. More…
Director Arin Arbus, in her Broadway debut, directs this portrait of a lonely waitress and a short order cook whose first date turns into a one-night stand – and maybe more.
See it if Intense man decides he's in love w a lonely woman he barely knows and tries to convince her despite her hesitations and explicitly saying No
Don't see it if Relentless man steamrolling after a woman is triggering: ignores her consent. Nudity, sex scene, or full male and female nudity offends you.
See it if you like the actors and don't mind seeing them wasted on horribly dated, misogynistic, creepy material.
Don't see it if you want to see a play that has literally any relevance in 2019. You'll be triggered by a would-be stalker portrayed as a hopeless romantic.
See it if you're looking for a master class in acting from two stage legends; you can overlook the dated idea of romance; you liked the original
Don't see it if you think that a man who refuses to leave when asked repeatedly isn't romantic; your sensibilities on consent have entered the 21st century
See it if You want to see two actors that are great have sex on broadway. The things two strangers have in common is incredible. Loved the small world
Don't see it if You do not like sex or mature subject matter
See it if you love Audra McDonald and Michael Shannon, who are both wonderful! This is not top drawer McNally, but there are some great moments.
Don't see it if you are uncomfortable with nudity. Also, this is not for anyone who is impatient. The play is too long and too slow.
See it if When youth is almost gone, sex may be easy but the work of actually making a relationship is hard. This play brings that hard truth to life
Don't see it if If you have no interest in a touching human story of two all too human souls reaching for a real connection one last time, then not for you
See it if you want to see two actors give amazing performances. Audra alone is worth seeing. She delivers a very nuanced performance.
Don't see it if you do not like nudity or a graphic sex scene. There is lots of language inappropriate for youth. This is NOT a family show.
See it if You are interested in One-nite stand story of a couple connecting in a sizzling &emotional awkward wayFan of Audra&Michael. Great chemistry
Don't see it if Uncomfortable with nudity. Not a fan of Terrence McNally. You expect Audra to sing
See it if Wonderful actors who bring their characters to life and make them believable. A great way to spend an evening.
Don't see it if Nudity and profanity upset you. In other words, if you are a prude.
See it if You want to see two great actors giving a subdued and very real performance. It is easy to relate to, but a little slow.
Don't see it if You like a lot of action, or want a set that makes sense.
See it if you set a summer goal to see anything and everything on Broadway.
Don't see it if you get bored easily. You have an issue with nudity, [badly] simulated sex (McDonald sounded like a dying moose) and sexual discussions.
See it if You love two of our greatest stage performers go at it with nothing in the way. It seems an odd couple, but that is kind of the point.
Don't see it if Like Burn This also on Broadway this season, the play is a little dated (a man wants to be with a woman & she shouldn’t object).
See it if You want to see masterful acting in a two hander.
Don't see it if You don't like staged sex. You don't like dialogue-heavy plays. This is a tough watch in the me-too era. Very uncomfortable.
See it if you want to be engaged in a great story, beautifully acted. Seeing Audra Mcdonald in this role is mezmerizing. A great night of theater.
Don't see it if You do not like relationship -driven story line.
See it if 4get the 2-minute sex scene at the top of the show, this is a funny 2-hander that'll bring back memories of all your previous 1-nite-stands
Don't see it if You are a big prude (15 sec. of Michael's butt and a similar left-boob look at Audra's). Some F-bombs. Don't find low-class romance funny.
See it if at look at two broken people who find a chance for love. They struggle with their ability to connect and desire to do so. Acting supreme
Don't see it if if you cant tolerate intimacy on all levels. 2 hours of exhausting dialogue. if you like light plays, though some humor. not for you
See it if You have a warm place in your heart for Terrance McNally and the long-gone days of extraordinary Off-Broadway playwrights and their plays.
Don't see it if An intimate play in a too-large theatre with two miscast actors. Star-quality goes a long way but not the same way it needs to in order to
