The comedic and heart-wrenching off-Broadway hit transfers to Broadway. Make a date with Jordan (Gideon Glick) as he navigates friendship and courtship as a terminal single in New York City More…
All of Jordan Berman’s best friends are setting a date…and he can’t even get one. Now when he needs brunch plans, emergency dating advice, or just someone to commiserate and eat carbs with, he has to compete for attention with their new significant others. Of course he’s so happy for them, but Jordan is struggling to keep up with how fast everyone else is changing. Starring most of the original Off-Broadway cast.
See it if Harmon's clever look at millennial relationships veers between insightful to glib Good ensemble work around Glick's hyper lead performance
Don't see it if Glick works tirelessly to find sympathy in Jordan's overactive, neurotic self-centeredrness but ultimately fails or was that Harmon's point?
See it if you can't get enough of Will & Grace; you want to see some fine performances by a cast doing their best to elevate pretty shallow material.

Don't see it if you are impatient in watching a play come together with a strong message.
See it if you are 20 something dreading being single when you are 30 something. Clever staging allows quick cut movie-style story telling.
Don't see it if you have a fully rounded life. These characters have limited their life choices to romantic partnership or death.
See it if Very entertaining and poignant show. All the actors were excellent. Barbara Barrie was fantastic and very memorable. a treat to see her.

Don't see it if you're sick to death of the tropes of people needing a romance to complete them, and gay characters being terminally lonely/tragic.
See it if You like stories about lonely guy who feels isolated while friends have relationships. Glick masterful performance. Treat to see B Barrie.
Don't see it if You don't want to see gay guy as main character. (Although could be anyone who is lonely). First act screechy girls; not good.
See it if you have a pulse. This heart-breaking & very funny script will keep you talking for days. DO NOT see it alone. G Glick deserves a Tony nod.
Don't see it if big iconic musicals or old classic plays are your thing. It's warm, touching, refreshing - albeit a bit millennial - but totally relevant.
See it if seeking a contemporary drama rooted in the lives of 20-to-30-somethings, their loves, hardships, and personal lives. The cast feels natural.
Don't see it if you want a classic, thought-provoking drama that'll leave you on the edge of your seat. There are dark-comedy moments (suicide/depression).
See it if You enjoy almost teen-aged banter about boyfriends and wedding prep and other meaningless chat. If you love Lindsey Mendez--she's great!
Don't see it if You must pay for your ticket. My sense is that Real Housewives of whatever is equally as entertaining. People 50+ may miss many references.

Don't see it if you dislike plays with a bit of humor based on modern life situations of young adults.
See it if Superb cast; Barbara Barrie needs to be everyone's grandma; artful construction and character arcs of main and lead supporting characters
Don't see it if Appreciated play more after seeing at earlier Pels run but still represents the shrill and bitchy kind of show that turns me off
See it if you are looking for a very "current" show. The show is very relevant to anyone who has come of age and has been heart sick

Don't see it if You want a deep discussion of loneliness and alienation in contemporary life, and are content to pay B'way prices for a few funny one liners
