Starring two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick and Tony-winner Annaleigh Ashford.
See it if you want to see a perfectly charming, well acted show, you have a dog. I loved it
Don't see it if you're not a fan of quirky, nerdy, occasionally silly shows.
See it if you want a fun & satisfying night out, need your spirits lifted, or are a dog lover. In fact, if you have a dog, this play is a MUST SEE.
Don't see it if you don't like clever comedies or in general, don't understand why people have pets.
See it if You like silly, nonsensical, overacted and mostly off-base canine humor mixed with flat and formulaic marital difficulties.
Don't see it if You expect creative, clever, nuanced and well-developed humor consistently based on a solid foundation of canine and marital behavior.
See it if you want to see fantastic performances from Annaleigh Ashford, Julie White, and Robert Sella.
Don't see it if you want to see a good performance from Matthew Broderick.
See it if You want to witness the side splitting dialogue between a man and his dog.
Don't see it if You are an animal hater and can't understand a relationship between a human and a dog.
See it if you want to see the most amazing one man supporting cast ever, you love dogs, you have a high Matthew Broderick tolerance
Don't see it if you can't handle aggressive whimsy or dogs that look like pre-children Britney Spears but act like post-children Britney Spears.
See it if you're a dog-lover and/or if you're looking for a fun feel-good show. Annaleigh Ashford is stupendous.
Don't see it if you're with young children. Most of the show is tame, but there was an unexpected amount of cursing [not a lot, but more than anticipated].
See it if You enjoy visual humor. Annaleigh Ashford is the best visual comedian on Broadway
Don't see it if You want something serious,
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 want to see Annaleigh Ashford command the stage and have fun
Don't see it if you don't like actors chewing the scene; you are uncomfortable with insinuated romance between a human and a dog
See it if you enjoy light comedies with moments of sincerity.
Don't see it if those moments of sincerity need to be more often than not. A nice attempt at the story but lacking in acting depth.
See it if you like Annaleigh Ashford - she's delightful, you like shows about having pets, you are looking for a sweet and funny play
Don't see it if you don't like seeing humans play animals, you want something extremely intellectually challenging
See it if You love dogs or are considering your midlife crisis. Makes a great case for man's best friend. Whole cast gives a master class in acting.
Don't see it if You don't want saccharine sweet entertainment. It's fairly predictable. Not for the nervous cat owner!
