Steve Martin's new comedy about two married couples who gather to watch a celestial event comes to Broadway starring comedians Amy Schumer and Keegan-Michael Key, Tony winner Laura Benanti, and Jeremy Shamos. More…
It’s a hot night in Ojai, California in 1993, and Corky (Schumer) and her husband Norm (Shamos) are having another couple over for dinner. But Laura (Benanti) and Gerald (Key) aren't looking for a casual evening of polite small talk with new friends. Eventually, the two couples find themselves in a marital free fall matched in velocity and peril only by the smoldering space rocks tearing through the sky. Directed by four-time Tony winner Jerry Zaks.
See it if You like nonsensical absurdist plays with little point. Most of my audience didn’t laugh. The humor didn’t work for me either.
Don't see it if You want to see Amy Schumer in person. Laura Benanti was interesting at least, but I still couldn’t wait for it to end.
See it if you laugh easily at hackneyed jokes and non-jokes masquerading as jokes (Even being a fan of the actors isn't a good reason)
Don't see it if you're not up for casual misogyny and homophobia from a pay that was written by a rich straight white man for rich straight white men
See it if you want to be able to say you saw Amy Schumer on Broadway or you are a die-hard Steve Martin fan.
Don't see it if you want an intelligent play. All the jokes are cheap and forced. The story is very hard to follow and ridiculous.
See it if you want to see a confusing, trite cliched play starring Amy Schumer & written by Steve Martin.
Don't see it if you don't like slapstick and do enjoy intelligent, well written subject matter.
See it if Seeing Amy Schumer is the most important/only consideration in your decision.
Don't see it if You have a low tolerance for characters as ciphers, comedy as extended snl skit full of dumb cliched repetitive relationship jokes.
