You think you’re having a bad day at work? Meet Sam. He covers the red-hot reservation line at one of New York’s most exclusive restaurants, juggling desperate diners, scheming socialites, name-dropping wannabes, celebrity divas, panicked waiters and a fame-hungry chef.
See it if you want a "beach read" play: light, breezy, short (altho the 80 mins can feel long). JTF is good (but not great) at creating 40 characters
Don't see it if you want a big show. This should be off-Brdway. There's little plot, but some laughs. Here, if your cellphone rings, no one will notice!

Don't see it if you want a show you can follow and do not particularly enjoy one man shows or if you want a truly hiarious comedy.
See it if one-man shows are cool with you. JT Ferguson was amazing: funny, precise, consistent, fully-committed (I swear, no pun). It was masterful.
Don't see it if one-man shows & NO INTERMISSION aren't cool w/you. The experience was a master class in theater. Wasn't much of a JT Ferguson fan until now.

See it if You want to see an actor totally own the stage & his parts. You want to LOL. Can relate to past job experience. Want to see a great show.
Don't see it if Watching one person play dozens of parts confuses you.
See it if Ambitious update of a one-man play; Jesse Tyler Ferguson is a winning personality; I've eaten at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal so I get it
Don't see it if Often portrays over-the-top pretension typical of high-end dining (may turn off many people); do you know who Heston Blumental is?

Don't see it if you're expecting anything fully-formed or insightful.
See it if you enjoy light fluffy fare on the menu. The show is frothy, foamy. and funny. JTF's performance is good but not four star.
Don't see it if you're hungry for a more substantial and filling evening. The play is much better suited for intimate OB like the original production.
See it if Not really a fan of JTF but he was "fully committed" to this show. In many places it could be manic. He did a great job with all the

See it if you're up for a light, fizzy bit of showmanship. JTF is fabulous at playing an ocean of characters, veering from touching to infuriating.
Don't see it if you want to see a piece that lasts or has any depth. it's a small work that would work better in a small theater.
