Starring two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick and Tony-winner Annaleigh Ashford.
See it if you want to see an actress play the part of a sexy dog. Matthew Broderick was so weird in the show that nothing could save it for me.
Don't see it if you are not a "dog" person or like intelligent theater.
See it if you want to see Annaleigh Ashford do her level best to elevate less-than-mediocre material.
Don't see it if you can't stand to see Julie White so terribly wasted. You don't like dogs. You resent audiences who laugh at cheap, bad jokes.
See it if for Annaleigh Ashford. She is AMAZING. Or if you want to see "Ferris" on stage.
Don't see it if you're looking for a good play - theres no substance. Its just not good.
See it if You want to see the stars perform and like crude humor
Don't see it if You need a story rather than a concept. The only humor present was all shock-value, nothing actually funny
See it if you love dogs and don't mind a "cute" script.
Don't see it if you like great acting, challenging ideas and have taste. Broderick is speaks and acts in a monotone.
See it if You are an ardent animal lover and don't mind watching a 2 hour play solely about the thought process of a canine
Don't see it if You cannot relate to animals and can't find humor in their everyday life Don't see it if you want a more lively show with a large cast.
See it if You want to support the two character actors, they were going for it! And the script is cute.
Don't see it if You want to see M. Broderick at his best, this isn't it. Also, the girl playing Sylvia was mugging beyond what the piece called for.
See it if Annaleigh Ashford's strong performance as Sylvia will be enough to satisfy you.
Don't see it if weak stories and the 'shock" of four letter jokes don't move you; uneven phoned in performances upset you
See it if You're with your great aunt who is visiting from out of town and she is someone who thinks watching paint dry is hilarious
