MTC presents a new comedy by the author of the rollicking, award-winning Broadway comedy 'One Man, Two Guvnors,' which offers a comic look at the world of snooker – the British version of pool. More…
Dylan Spokes, a fast-rising young star, arrives for a championship tournament only to be confronted by the authorities warning him of the repercussions of match fixing. Before he knows it, Dylan is forced into underhanded dealings with a cast of wildly colorful characters that include his ex-convict dad, saucy mum, quick-tongued manager, and a renowned gangster, to boot. It’s a fast-paced comedy thriller where, in an exciting twist, the tournament unfolds live on stage.
See it if You like farce stories. This is a comedic drama with strong accents. I think a lot of jokes/references were lost on the U.S. audience.
Don't see it if You want a smart dramedy. The funny bits felt very childish. Half the Mezz audience didn’t return for Act II.
See it if you liked Play That Went Wrong or simply like silly British humor(as opposed to Python or similar)or if you care about snooker or even pool.
Don't see it if Silly stuff annoys you, or if you have trouble with a Yorkshire accent. Get the hearing device for sure for this one!
See it if You're into plays and want to see everything on B'way. There are some funny moments and some twists - overall enjoyable not a must see
Don't see it if You're looking for fast-paced action or a serious play.
See it if you think British dry humor is funny - or you are obsessed with snooker - but don't expect anything at all like One Man. Two Guvnors.
Don't see it if don't see it. period.
See it if it wasn't the worst MTC show i've ever seen... there was a fun twist, and the "live" match near the end was cool.
Don't see it if i will have completely forgotten about this show soon...
See it if you love the British game of snooker, John Ellison Conlee's scene-stealing acting, and an actual game of snooker taking up most of Act 2.
Don't see it if you were expecting rollicking hijinks as in playwright's One Man Two Guvnors; this play is full of uninteresting characters & too static.
See it if you're looking for an evening of silly, mindless entertainment to distract you from the woes of the world.
Don't see it if you want to see a play that makes you think, or that you won't have completely forgotten by the time you're on the subway on the way home.
See it if you like british humor and have a low bar
Don't see it if you're expecting another One Man Two Guvnors type show. This was nothing like that and rather disappointing
See it if you want a sitcom like show ... it is not hard to understand or follow ... the second act is entertaining but the ending is very abrupt.
Don't see it if you want a memorable play ... while not terrible, I would not recommend at Broadway prices
See it if you like heavy British accents and snooker (which is more fun than the script). Much of the cast is good, but acting & direction is uneven.
Don't see it if you want a play that makes a point, any point. It fails to be funny enough to make you forget its flaws.
See it if you like the game of Snooker and want a brainless night of theatre/fluff
Don't see it if you want to care about characters or plot, you'll be distracted by accents or horribly written female roles
See it if You love British comedies. This told a slight story, and was very slow to start. Not funny enough.
Don't see it if You get impatient with slight, cliched stories. Disappointing.
See it if you can decifer heavy accents and know something about snooker. Impressive that it was played live because how can they predict the results?
Don't see it if the idea of a play revolving around snooker leaves you underwhelmed as there’s a lot of references to the game.
See it if Snooker is your bag. It certainly ain't mine. This is not a sports-centric entertainment that transcends its milieu to speak higher truths.
Don't see it if Snooker is not your bag. The irony is: the televised snooker match in Act 2 is the highlight of the play and well done!
See it if It had its moments. You like British not believable farcical stories. You enjoy snooker/pool.
Don't see it if You are not into British farce. Also if was slow. Some actors didn't have the accent down.
See it if you like zany characters and fun, light, shows that don’t require too much thinking
Don't see it if Your concept of British humor is as an oxymoron or you simply have trouble with British accents
