Slow, Overrated, Disappointing

See it if If you did not see it on Bway with Nathan Lane, F Murray and Stockard Channing this show may do.

Don't see it if If you saw on Broadway this will be disappointing. Does not even come close is slow and uninspiring.

Great writing, Funny, Quirky, Entertaining, Clever

See it if silly theatrical gossip, wit & slapstick meet your requirements for entertainment. This is the party I've always wanted to be invited to.

Don't see it if you prefer serious drama driven by logic, realistic characters and significant themes. None of these here.
