Nostalgic, Entertaining, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if Art piece begets a sibling adventure story that crashes into the next that crashes into the next.Six roles, 4 scenes, 3 plots, and 2 actors.

Don't see it if Disasters happen.Talented TVtwosome (one tussled on screen with Tallulah and one with Medusa) deserve a better engineered property than this Read more

Nicely done

See it if You’re a fan of Harry Hamlin and/or Stefanie Powers. The play is 80 minutes, 3 vignettes and it was nice to see these 2 performers.

Don't see it if You prefer profound dramas. This show is far from that. The two play brother and sister and it’s nice to see their interaction.

Better than i thought, Great acting

See it if You want to see two incredible veteran actors in a very small space

Don't see it if You are looking for a big flashy Broadway type play. The set is interesting but it’s very black box style Read more

Poorly written, No flow, Fluffy, Sometimes funny, Banal

See it if Powers and Hamlin do their best with a limited script to make this play entertaining; interested in seeing them on stage.

Don't see it if not much substance and can seem like a bad comedy show; the writing is poor, set is awkward; video between costume changes doesn't work.

Great acting, Disappointing, Confusing, Banal, Ambitious

See it if I was bored. Admittedly, I went to see Harry Hamlin and Stephanie Powers. They did not disappoint. But they were given little to work with.

Don't see it if You want plot, coherence, or meaning. If you’re going for the two stars, you’ll be satisfied, if not enthralled. But you could do worse.

Slow, Indulgent, Disappointing, Ambitious

See it if You want to see these stars. This is an interweaving tale with art references, the pain of loss, the randomness of life.

Don't see it if You are put off by the frequent pauses for costume changes, odd lighting, but she can still carry off those spike heels.

Boring, Cliched, Banal

See it if you like to see famous tv actors.

Don't see it if you are expecting anything interesting.It is dull, pointless, predictable. Avoid if you can.

"TV Stars on a Bumpy Flight: Harry Hamlin and Stefanie Powers bring a measure of glamour to a patchy two-hander about three sibling pairs and one downed airplane."

"'One November Yankee' is the second attraction I've come across in the last few days…that plays like a star package airlifted from the straw-hat circuit. It would be fun to see these stars under any circumstances, but here they are trapped in a vehicle that remains stuck on the runway."

2/5 Stars. "The most interesting character in the show is the broken-down Piper Cub plane that dominates the stage. Unfortunately, none of the flesh-and-blood characters are as compelling as Crumpled Plane."

"Beloved TV stars Harry Hamlin (L.A. Law) and Stefanie Powers (Hart to Hart) not only work their proverbial tails off to make even the weakest material sound believable, but audiences can simply bask in the glow of the duo's ever-present glamour when the ride gets particularly bumpy."

Beloved television stars Harry Hamlin and Stefanie Powers return to the New York stage in Joshua Ravetch's One November Yankee. … It is their star power which keeps this old-fashioned, rather sit-com-ish, interconnected triple bill as lively and as entertaining as it is despite clichéd writing and passé jokes.

Theatre Reviews Limited
December 9th, 2019

"Despite their heroic efforts, Ravitch's script lacks the sophistication and strength to match the formidable skills of the cast. The failure of the sound and the persistent cellphone ringing in the front row made this performance of 'One November Yankee' an unfortunate challenge for an accomplished cast."
