Uneven acting, Uneven tone, Clever, Disappointing, Absorbing

See it if you like plays abt actors, NYC, gay romance, friends. Not terribly ambitious, but engaging. Acting often awkw (esply Phillips). Funny lines.

Don't see it if you want consistent tone. Swings fr real to broad. Interesting issue of how honest to be w mate. Ugly set. Awk direction. Needs cuts.

Great writing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy stories about actors or the performing arts community. Very well written, funny and entertaining. Story moves at a good pace.

Don't see it if If you dislike small off-off broadway plays with limited staging. It's a really fun play and I could see it moving to an off-bway stage.

Delightful, Relevant, Romantic, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want some good laughs with a talented cast, working with a decent script that has a couple surprises, on a nearly bare set well-utilized

Don't see it if you want a completely polished production or do not like humor that borders on going a little over the top with character portrayals.

Cliched, Amusing, Entertaining, Clever

See it if to see a clever premise (Do you tell your bf he's untalented?) played out as a gay rom-com w/a handful of laughs & a stage full of clichés.

Don't see it if you're looking for something serious or challenging; you require high (or any!) production values; you don't know who Kristin Chenowith is. Read more
