Playwrights Horizons presents this new romantic comedy about two 16-year-olds who forge an unlikely friendship amidst the class warfare in a small Rhode Island town. More…
Abandoned by his wayward mom, 16-year-old Daniel is consigned to spend summer with his widower granddad in a Rhode Island beach town, where the locals don’t look kindly on city kids. But his hapless vacation turns around when he meets Izzy: tough-acting, back-sassing, beguiling, and taken. The impulsive Sicilian-American girl is determined to defend her territory from this prep school invader. Gregory S. Moss’s feisty romantic comedy follows a passing fling that could last a lifetime—as impossible and charmed as an Indian summer.
See it if you like good acting by solid cast. I was more interested in its observations about death than it as a rom/com which is how its being sold.
Don't see it if you're going to complain that you could've stayed home and watched HBO. You could. But if you love small stories in a theatre, it's good.
See it if you want to be taken right back to being on the beach when you were 16, hanging out with that cute person and trying to figure things out.
Don't see it if You're looking for something heavier than featherweight.
See it if You would like to see a nicely written play. It has a couple weak spots, but overall was a satisfying afternoon at the theater.
Don't see it if you want your plays to having some depth or meaning to them. Its a bit fluffy.
See it if You want a charming coming of age love story with entertaining characters and a hint of serious issues
Don't see it if You value strongly written dialogue, if you don't like exaggerated character archetypes, if you want something groundbreaking and ambitious
See it if you like very nicely written bittersweet plays about lost love and missed opportunities, along with excellent acting by a fine cast.
Don't see it if you've already seen too many shows about coming of age and good writing and great acting won't make up for that.
See it if This show was a complete surprise. I had no idea what I was in for. The play was excellent, the staging terrific, the acting excellent.
Don't see it if You don't like young people.
See it if You like romantic comedies. With a meet-cute, a charmingly quirky older man, and a boyfriend who gets in the way of true connection.
Don't see it if You don't like young love or remembering what it was like to be an outcast and find someone to connect to only to have obstacles in your way
