"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"
