About the Show

Man hires actors to be his family, but chaos ensues. Off-Broadway hit by Plays Of Wilton (POW!).

Touching, Great writing, Funny, Exquisite, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy family drama with heart and humor. This is a well written, moving, humorous and bittersweet piece of theater.

Don't see it if You dont like laughing and tearing up at the same show.

Funny, Refreshing, Masterful, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you want to see comedy with an odd-ball premise with actors and writing that hit every mark

Don't see it if you get bothered by poor scene change decisions or loneliness combined with guilt and loss doesn't seem to be a topic for comedy.

Also Ronnie Larson's writing and acting supported by an incredibly talented group of actors who never miss a cue or a line make this poignant, strangely premised comedy a must see. The only weakness in this show is Director Stuart Meltzer's inexplicable decision to go to black on virtually every scene change despite there being virtually no set changes.

Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Delightful

See it if You love to laugh. The audience, including myself, could not get enough of this show - we were roaring with laughter during the first act.

Don't see it if I don't have anything bad to say about it. The second act is not quite as funny as it goes into more emotional, dysfunctional family stuff.

Wild, Whimsical, Warm-hearted, Winsome, Witty

See it if You enjoy comical twists and turns and appreciate a far-fetched plot that almost becomes believable due to superb acting.

Don't see it if You are overly critical and don't have the ability to suspend judgment for comedy sake.
