Picture of nostalgia

See it if Smooth sailing memory lane trip with a master playwright. Trio of likeable characters makes time fly.

Don't see it if Play dated. Dialogue projections would be highly distracting beyond first row. Audio descriptions may be uber intrusive. Pack your patience. Read more

Neil simon!, Noteworthy, Nostalgic, Neoteric, Nyc/la

See it if You enjoy a small, talented cast & a theater company w/ a powerful mission of inclusion. You appreciate Neil Simon or have yet to meet him.

Don't see it if You are a purist and rage against anything that isn't the original, vintage version. Let's support our theaters.

Delightful, Funny, Great staging, Great acting, Great writing

See it if you enjoy light comedy amidst family relationship issues - this one exposes what many deal with in parent-child relationships after divorce.

Don't see it if you want a serious look at these issues - much is made fun of and is overdone for the comical effect. A bit on the long side.

Intelligent, Great staging, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if Not Neil Simon's best play, but still pretty darn good. The acting and staging are wonderful. The surtitles were distractingly late.

Don't see it if If you want an up-to-the-minute Bway blockbuster, this aint it. But the play is entertaining, funny at times, and very worthwhile.
