Quirky, Great acting, Slow, Clever, Great writing

See it if you love Audra or McNally.

Don't see it if It is well-written and acted but a long evening of much the same. Could have been done at the end of the first act.

Clever, Funny, Great acting, Resonant, Must see

See it if YES, see it! Still relevant, superb cast & staging, not dated. MUST SEE! Small house any seat is good. 1 fun act.

Disappointing, Slow

See it if you inexplicably like this show. Or just have to hear Melissa Errico or Stephen Bogardus.

Don't see it if Just don't. The show is bad. The production is community theater level. Not even the two stars can save it. Rent the movie...

See it if you don't want to miss amazing name actors or the first look at a new McNally play directed by John Doyle.
