See it if You like a light comedy. If you like a good sit-com this is the show for you.
Don't see it if You're looking for a show with a lot of substance. The acting was fine. It was the writing. Too often I found it unbelievable.
See it if you have ever lived in a NYC apartment. The amusing realities of city living keep the audience laughing in this envy driven plot.
Don't see it if coincidences in plays bother you. The plot resolution revolves around a coincidence but the events are character driven.
See it if Your idea of fun is hearing a young woman moan and moan while a guy is describing luxury real estate.
Don't see it if You want good acting, a plot that makes any sense, comfortable seats, or a talented cast, since you won't find any of that here.
See it if You enjoy kooky characters that will make you laugh and almost cry. You enjoy relationship dramas dealing with realistic situations.
Don't see it if Gay characters and humor disturb you. These characters, not only they gay ones lean toward charicature. .
See it if You like silly TV sitcoms, don't care if the story has holes, you think getting turned on by real estate descriptions is a funny concept.
Don't see it if You can't sit for 90 minutes without intermission, you want a coherent story, you are offended by seeing simulated sex with clothes on.
See it if Moderately funny - about a gay man whose partner has the same name spelled backward. They live in a dump across from a luxury apt he covets
Don't see it if The straight woman and daughter in the condo are sex obsessed. The husband is a gambler. Somehow it fits together and delivers a few laughs

Don't see it if Don't like plays Don't get anything about the current landscape/ issues related to housing/rentals
See it if you've recently been apartment hunting or if you like seeing a terrific set. Some cast members are quite good and there were good moments.
Don't see it if you hate shrill, spoiled young women or seeing New Yorkers, Jews, and gays stereotyped.
See it if Can't really recommend seeing it. Silly story with poor staging. Actors struggle to make sense of what little they have to work with
Don't see it if you want any kind of intelligent story, or design elements that make sense
See it if If you are a fan of those NY real estate shows you'll probably find enough to be amused and entertained by this 90 min show- cool staging.
Don't see it if If you're not drawn in by the "real estate porn" or have never ascribed life stories and personalities to people based on observation only
See it if you're interested in a play about New York real estate written by someone who clearly knows nothing about New York...let alone real estate.
Don't see it if you want to see a good play.
See it if Expectations are everything, and show scores here set the bar so low, one couldn't help but be charmed by this funny but forgettable farce.
Don't see it if I'm not saying to pay serious money for this, but I've seen far worse plays with show-scores in the yellow & green zones
See it if you love sitcoms and never want to see anything that has a real imagination.
Don't see it if you believe theatre is an art form that can inspire and reveal truth in truly funny and painful ways.
See it if you're in the area and like new work. Two of the actors are great, even in spite of the writing. It's a fun night out, just don't go alone.
Don't see it if you're not willing to be generous. The script is not the strongest, but the actors give it as much life as they can.

Don't see it if You have a short attention span.
See it if you like off-broadway, ingenious theater
Don't see it if if you don't like looking at different places on stage as there are 2 distinct areas of the play that are not close together.
