Entertaining, Funny, Great acting

See it if you like a fun "Mad Men" type of play, with a lot of drinking, dancing and wonderful acting and direction.

Don't see it if you like plot, profound revelation or character growth. It is basically a long drunken party with predictable consequences....BUT FUN!

"'Abigail’s Party' may be the most uncomfortable comedy in New York right now, and I’d sit through it again in a second. Here, humor and unpleasantness are intertwined, and that leads to laughs — many, many laughs — that are part gleeful and part appalled...Though the script is candy for actors, at its core, 'Abigail’s Party' is merely a tale of a gathering gone wrong. Yet while you may have seen much of this before, this one’s still a must-see."
