Cute, Funny, Slow, Fluffy, Entertaining

See it if You like sitting Room comedies, sort of a modern Noël Coward style. A little forced but some fun twists, good acting, great set/costumes.

Don't see it if You can’t forgive a few missteps, the writing is a bit forced and some of the acting is stiff but I get the sense they will work it out. Read more

Intelligent, Hilarious, Entertaining, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if If you want a very funny play that has you laughing the whole show. An ex wife, former husband, butler, bridezilla are all great. Bellylaugh

Don't see it if If you do not like comedies. If you rather a musical.

"Indeed, the entire enterprise is a bit of a mystery. It doesn't have a really satirical point of view, but it lacks the wit and solid construction of the vintage boulevard comedies it superficially resembles. The characters are a self-involved, shallow bunch, given to endless, unamusing complaining."
