See it if You like simple stories about families and parents growing old

Don't see it if You want to see a deeper drama and not the same old simple plot that's unremarkable

"The play just isn't all that funny, though the audience laughed throughout. It's objectively depressing, albeit all too common, family drama…The play has some very nice moments…The last third of the play is the strongest, though one might say that the ending is too pat…Great art happens when the personal becomes something greater than itself. That isn't the case with 'In the Car with Blossom and Len,' which feels a bit like it was written from a therapist's notes."

For a previous production

"There is a great deal of humor in the play, and, largely, it derives from character and situation. However, there are occasions when author Joni Fritz and director Lynne Taylor-Corbett reach for easy, sitcom humor based on Blossom and Len's expanding disabilities...Also, the dénouement is too neat and clean, and not quite convincing…A very entertaining, involving and affecting play. It is within reaching distance of becoming something special."

For a previous production

"It’s a comedy, though it’s pretty horrifying when dealing with the state of denial that Len and Blossom are living in…There are plenty of laughs, along the way, at the absurdity of it all. The ending is bittersweet. This being a comedy, everything does work itself out, more or less—maybe a little too easily, given the monumental problems in these characters’ lives. But along the way, we’ve spent some time with some very real, albeit frustrating, people."
