An immersive food and wine experience paired with the New York premiere of the stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning film. More…
From the show:
Rex Pickett’s critically acclaimed novel turned Academy Award-winning film adapted for the stage in SIDEWAYS THE EXPERIENCE. Struggling writer and wine enthusiast Miles takes his best friend, Jack, on a trip to California wine country for one last bonding adventure on the eve of Jack's wedding. SIDEWAYS THE EXPERIENCE creates an immersive (on stage) pre-show wine tasting event similar to ones discovered along the Napa Valley wine trail, as depicted in the novel and film. Gourmet food and premium wine will be served as part of the exclusive first act of this unique theatrical experience.
See it if Act II has more drama to keep you awake (pouring wine all over yourself, gunshots when hunting, relationship drama & screaming).
Don't see it if But Act I is a huge bore & way too long. A comedy should be directed to have laughs, which aren't present. 2 hrs 35 minutes - needs big cuts
See it if you like plays based on a movie. The 2 1/2 hour play goes along nicely with good acting and an engaging story.
Don't see it if you don't like comedy/dramas about interpersonal relationships.
See it if You like the movie and root for the underdog, who admittedly was somewhat obnoxious. Go see this show, you will nto regrete it.
Don't see it if If you can't get past a shlumpy guy winning the girl in the end.
See it if you want an evening of fun entertainment. Brian Ray Norris acts really well as Miles and the other actors are convincing, too.
Don't see it if you don't approve of the concept of bachelors trips before one's marriage or you only want "serious" entertainment and no silly/funny shows.
See it if You would enjoy a live action interpretation of the movie “Sideways”.
Don't see it if You prefer shorter performances as this is 2 1/2 hours, or if you wouldn’t appreciate a live version of the “Sideways”.
See it if Fun show with great performers. Saw the movie way back and thought this was a terrific interpretation. We needed wine at the finish.
Don't see it if More a macho male story. Drepressed writer and buddy needing to taste their sorrow away.
See it if You want a light comedy faithful to the movie, even in casting. Buy a glass of wine at beginning: refills free during show!
Don't see it if You have impatience for a 2 hour plus play: definitely needs trimming.
See it if You want a Unique evening! VIP option wine pairing before the show complements the story! Fabulous production values! Fun performers.
Don't see it if You hated the film.
See it if you enjoy plays that go deep, that are equally funny and emotional, you like wine, you like the movie,
Don't see it if you expect it to be exactly like the movie, you don't like thought-provoking theater
See it if You love red wine and plan on drinking a tiny overpriced amount during the show. You loved the movie!
Don't see it if You’re looking for a solid comedy where you root for the characters. You Sony’s love wine.
See it if Divorcee and wingman unwind with women in wine-soaked Napa weekend. "This pinot is pornographically good/You have no taste, just appetite."
Don't see it if Mix of both esoteric and crude. Sad, smug, seething lead treats everyone badly.Four hrs w/ pairing experience(3 pricepoints based on intake)
See it if You know and like the movie and/or the novel it’s based on. See it if you are straight and looking for a good date night experience.
Don't see it if You are looking for something deep or dramatic. This is fluff but good fluff.
