Don't see it if Clever but not believable. 80-year-old's don't act like 40-year-old's.
See it if if you are a fan of Beth Wohl or any of the cast, enjoy modern family comedies on a subject seldom presented, like great curtain scenes
Don't see it if topic seems a little too frothy for you, want subject explored more seriously, petulant adult children disturb you, don't like divorce tales
See it if Wohl's dissection of love & marriage is an uneasy mix of sit-com vs dark black comedy Top notch performances (esp leads) elevate material
Don't see it if Despite Sliverman's attentive staging, comedy veers wildly between the banal & the poignant & never quite gets beneath the surface emotions
See it if caving marriage story told in a comedic fashion; Alexander and Cromwell are wonderful as usual; interesting topic with unusual delivery.

See it if you like actors who know what they are doing and do it extremely well.Wohl is a terrific writer.Great direction.Interesting look at marriage
Don't see it if you only like big brassy musicals.Other than that there is NO reason to not see this show.Terrific script, great direction, brilliant acting
See it if a sometimes very funny serio-comic look at a very confused family with excellent acting ( esp Alexander & Cromwell) & some poignant moments.
Don't see it if some overly broad comic bits & not very incisive, but for the most part, very enjoyable.
"Marriage Is a Long-Running Farce
Bess Wohl’s new play puts a Neil Simonesque spin on the story of a couple considering divorce after 50 years."
4/5 Stars: "In Leigh Silverman's production for Second Stage, the gifted cast...keeps the energy high. And the play does have touching things to say about the difficulty of trying to navigate a course between the Scylla and Charybdis of noncommunication and too much information."
"The Sparkle and Glow of 'Grand Horizons'"
"Jane Alexander, James Cromwell, Ben McKenzie and Michael Urie appear in the new comedy by 'Small Mouth Sounds' playwright Bess Wohl about a couple getting divorced after 50 years of marriage."
"The spirit of Neil Simon lives on, if uneasily, in 'Grand Horizons,' Bess Wohl’s throwback 1970s-style sit-com."
"Looking for Laughs at the End of the Road: Bess Wohl’s comedy about the breakup of a couple living in a senior community is humorous, but just barely."
"Even TV Sitcoms Pull Off Dysfunctional Family Humor Better Than ‘Grand Horizons’ Does"
