Disappointing, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you know and like Reza's style of theater: literate, cute, well-crafted but lacking in emotional or real intellectual depth. Parisian!

Don't see it if you are seeking a rich theatrical experience. There is enjoyment in the play and a challenge to make sense of the structure, but bit empty.
