See it if you're having a bachelorette party or girls' night out. It's perfect for that more than a night at the theater.

Don't see it if you need more content & less filler in your theater-going adventures. This is 70 minutes of perfectly pleasant silliness, but not much else.

Critic Reviews (6)

The New York Times
February 12th, 2014

"“Sex Tips” could have been zingy and smart and actually helpful, like Bravo’s erstwhile reality series “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” But apparently, that was not the goal here. This show feels like a blend of a bachelorette party at Chippendales and the embarrassing midnight act at a Pigalle tourist trap."

Theatermania
February 9th, 2014

"What straight woman doesn't want to learn a few handy tricks to make her man happy in bed? And what better person to teach her what a man wants than a sassy gay man! How much you'll actually learn at Sex Tips is questionable, but you won't go to this hysterically titillating show for an education. You'll go because you want to laugh your @ss off."

Theatre is Easy
February 9th, 2014

"I wish I could say that hilarity ensues, but save for a handful of one-liners and a few well-placed slides, the laughter from the audience sprang mostly from watching their fellow audience members being put through the ringer."

Stage Buddy
February 18th, 2014

"Let's not call this a “play”, because it only marginally meets that criteria. "Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man", written by Matt Murphy and directed by Tim Drucker, is part improv, part cabaret, part silliness -- and mostly just a night of fluffy fun."

Manhattan Digest
February 17th, 2014

"Can we really analyze the sexual and gender  politics  of a play that includes a striptease starting in an astronaut suit with the song lyrics “I Am Scientist?”  Exactly. Murphy is well aware of his audience and is rightfully banking  on bounties of bachelorettes and gaggles of gays to fill the seats."

"The show is geared toward tourists and bachelorette parties, and is not without its charms...It's nothing new, nor does it move much beyond a standard love-story arc delivered within the context of some semi-improved bits involving people being forced to do embarrassing things on stage, but it kept the audience thoroughly entertained."
