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 Quirky coming of age story, capturing a moment when things were simpler and you fell in love for the first time. Funny and heart breaking.
Don't see it if you prefer shows with a lot of action or if every moment needs to be completely believable, or if you don't like a lot of narration.
See it if You like a sweet coming of age story that's made believable by great acting by Kibler as Izzy. In best scene she helps grandpa reminisce.
Don't see it if You can't get past the forced Italian RI accent or stereotypes. Should be a half hour shorter and less disjointed.
See it if The main storyline is kind of predictable but it's still really entertaining, with clever dialogue, true humor and is really well acted
Don't see it if I found the Italian stereotype humor really funny.. But this might not be to everyone's taste
See it if you like light shows with little substance support new young artists; like joe tippett shirtless; support new artists;
Don't see it if you like a bit of substance; don't like summer romance stories; don't like off-beat somewhat disturbing characters; hate sand.
See it if The actors and direction are the best of this show: Owen Campbell, Elise Kibler and Joe Tippett (hilarious)...Carolyn Cantor directing.
Don't see it if Admirable production, but the play is long winded and a bit familiar. Jonathan Hadary's character, the wise kvetch, is irritating.
See it if You don't mind wasting two hours of your life watching something that brought no clarity or meaning to the experience.
Don't see it if You mind spending your precious time wishing you were at the beach instead of watching a play about being at the beach.
See it if coming of age stories are very interesting. Beach side location are also attractive. The attractive young cast are very good. I enjoyed it.
Don't see it if Stories about growing up, teenage crushes, and summer romances are not your thing.
See it if you appreciate fearless writing and stunning acting, and would love a romantic comedy that defies the normal tropes of that genre.
Don't see it if you want your romantic comedies to be just light and fluffy and all happy endings - this comedy is tempered w/ brilliant flashes of darkness
See it if you're willing to overlook a bland script for some wonderful performances (particularly from Jonathan Hadary) and some beautiful design.
Don't see it if you're expecting an original new play. Indian Summer, try as it may, never becomes anything more than a slight boy-meets-girl love story.
See it if Coming-of-age-at-the-beach comedy delivers waves of laughs, sweet longing, and just a spray of salt water, with a sharp Woody-esque script.
Don't see it if Consistent belly laughs are difficult achieve, and it is a credit to the cast, playwright and director that they calibrated this so well.
See it if masterful actors in an ambitious play of "coming of age" and end of life loss. Well written, a couple forgivable disjointed moments
Don't see it if you don't like watching young love plays with little action
See it if u want a play as warm & crisp as a summer breeze that reminds u of a period in your life free from the everyday & full of potential. GREAT!
Don't see it if u expect a lot of action: this is more a celebration of (clearly drawn & relatable) characters in moments of self-discovery & transition.
See it if You'd like to be reminded of being young when boundaries not yet set, when life was still new and fresh, before love just meant sex. Tender
Don't see it if Not plot, set, or character heavy. It's a "small" play of when we were young and fresh. Depends on Listening and Watching closely.
See it if If you want to see a delightful depiction of a summer at the beach with youthful romance and a nostalgic look at the past.
Don't see it if If you want a song and dance show. This features attractive teens -in a memory piece of another time.
