About the show

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.

Cliched, Slow, Overrated, Insipid, Well-acted

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 seek something better than a 2nd-rate gay sitcom with a few chuckles and nothing new to say about modern relationships.

Great staging, Cliched, Unnecessarily crude, Dated, Insignificant

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.

Funny, Disappointing, Banal, Cliched, Insipid

See it if You enjoy time spent with a whiney puerile gwm wallowing about his singleness and his superficial f. friends who"abandon"him as they marry

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

Also This whole enterprise is vapid and quite insignificant. Barbara Barrie... Read more Read less

Don't see it if you want to pay for what you could see on television, over age 30 and intelligent!

63
Entertaining

See it if you are interested in how a gay fellow feels when his female friends find significant others and he doesn't.

Don't see it if you're interested in drama (this one with laughs) in which the central character changes as a result of his experiences the play depicts.

Also What's this play about? Not Jordan taking a hard look at himself to se... Read more Read less

Disappointing

See it if you have some favorites that are in the show. Some great casting in the leads and supporting leads, but not a fan of Ms. Barry's performance

Don't see it if you're not comfortable with gay roles being portrayed on stage.

Cliched, Indulgent, Disappointing, Quirky, Overbaked

See it if U don't mind knowing where the plot/characters are going to end up by the end of the 1st scene + it takes it's repetitive time to get there.

Don't see it if None of the above scares you off and you don't mind a been there/seen that feel to it all that goes all weepy without earning it.

Also Add to my remark in "Don't see it if..." that my daughter told me she ... Read more Read less

Don't see it if you want more from your theatre going experience.

Don't see it if You are expecting great comedy..it's just not that interesting..

Don't see it if You love great plays, because this isn't one

69
Cliched, Fluffy, Indulgent

See it if you want a bit of cliched self importance which has mildly amusing moments but is highly overrated

Don't see it if you don't like to see a play that should have stayed off-Broadway choke in the new setting.... empty theater seats and all.

Cliched, Dated, Disappointing, Great acting, Quirky

See it if This is just a sitcom, but it does have one hell of a monologue near the end, gloriously performed by Gideon Glick.

Don't see it if If you don't want to spend the money when you could be watching Friends or Will & Grace at home.

Cliched, Repetitive, Overrated, Chick flick

See it if If you're a group of under 18 year old females, or if not, you've had a lot of pre-show drinks.

Don't see it if You're not the above, if you want something unique, deep or thought provoking, or with real stakes, or with 3-dimensional characters.

Also The only unique thing about this show is that the main character is ga... Read more Read less

See it if You enjoy watching characters mouth off and get into cringe inducing situations.

Don't see it if You can be ok with not liking any of the characters.

Cliched, Funny, Intense, Indulgent

See it if you are currently in your 30's and enjoy contemporary plays. Many people relate to the content of this show: romance in the era of texts.

Don't see it if contemporary, every day drama of a 30 y/o doesn't interest you. To me, the characters were caricatures of 30 y/os today; partially surface.

Delightful, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Intense, Great acting

See it if You enjoy feeling like you can actually feel the relevance of the play and can identify with the characters.

Don't see it if You enjoy a faced pace show. The first act was slow moving.
