From the show:
Bill and Nancy have spent fifty full years as husband and wife. They practically breathe in unison, and can anticipate each other's every sigh, snore and sneeze. But just as they settle comfortably into their new home in Grand Horizons, the unthinkable happens: Nancy suddenly wants out. As their two adult sons struggle to cope with the shocking news, they are forced to question everything they assumed about the people they thought they knew best.
See it if you like creative,original writing, great acting - esp Jane Alexander and Priscilla Lopez. Innovative play cuts to the chase about life
Don't see it if you like formulaic comedies that don't go beneath the surface
See it if If you’re a Jane Alexander fan, you must go. It’s great to have her back on Bway and she’s the best thing in the show.
Don't see it if You have a short attention span and you have high expectations. The play could use judicious cutting and it’s unworthy of its stars.
See it if If you want to see a failed script for a TV Pilot-this is your type of writing. Nothing new to say and struggles to find the way to say it.
Don't see it if The acting is superb. The crew changing set pieces are obstructive to the immersion. The characters are mainly one dimensional.
See it if You want to see Broadway deal with a population that is always ignored - old people - treating them with respect, and a whole lot of humor
Don't see it if you think comedy no longer has a place on Broadway. It's not Disney,nor is it darkly depressing - it's smart; it's hilarious, and worth it
