This new comedy with a heart offers a reminder of why marriage and divorce make for the strangest of bedfellows. More…
From the show:
It’s self-made billionaire Richard Killingworth's daughter’s big day! The last person he wants to see is his estranged wife Mavis—the woman who put the “ex” in “exes.” Celebrating with his best friend Dick, who happens to be Mavis’ first husband, Richard’s life turns upside down when the Queen of Chaos drops in, unannounced, with her new fiancé in tow. Throw in a sharp-tongued butler (um, house manager), a champagne-soaked bridezilla and a snarky stepson, and you have the perfect storm of pandemonium—the fun kind—in this comedy with a heart, reminding us why marriage and divorce make for the strangest of bedfellows.
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.
Also Worth it.
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.
See it if u know someone in the cast. [At the performance I saw, the ONLY people laughing & enjoying themselves were the families of 2 of the actors.]
Don't see it if you have any standards at all for quality writing, coherent structure, competent acting and humorous comedy. [This play is pure dreck.]
See it if you like light comedy that is predictable and don't mind over-the-top characters. The perfection of character by John Coleman Taylor.
Don't see it if you want a well-directed play or expect a lot of laughs - other than the house manager character, the comedy is lacking and repetitious.
See it if Former spouses reunite on a holiday with one entertaining a legal agenda. Homage to drawing-room comedies.
Don't see it if Acting and writing don't deliver on ripe premise. Should have been better with the promise of a madcap set-up.
See it if you like a play with dialogue that's overdone, predictable characters and silly story. The actors are good but wasted in poor dialogue.
Don't see it if you like a funny, witty show with true comical plot.
See it if You think it will be entertaining like a Noel Coward drawing room play. It misses the mark. The actors try their best. Story is lacking.
Don't see it if You expect a polished comedy with likable characters. Best part was the last five minutes. Very slow moving and drawn out, needs editing.
See it if you like light comedies about romantic relationships o about divorce and spoiled children.
Don't see it if you ar looking for a serious play or are sensitive to issues related to divorce, infidelity or poor choices in relationships.
See it if Youhave to see every drawing room comedy. To enjoy Marcel.
Don't see it if You want subtlety. I kept thinking if that was Kevin Kline or Harry Connick or any effervescent light handed actor this could be fun.
Also We were three and none could stand it. It really was dreadful.
See it if pleasant show with some funny moments; an excellent John Coleman Taylor as the British house manager
Don't see it if don't want forced dialogue*, want a drawing room comedy that has more funny moments and/or fewer farcical ones in other parts
See it if You want to see a light and fluffy funny play that was well written and performed. You want to laugh and have a good time at a performance.
Don't see it if You are too serious and don't want to have a laugh or two. You want a serious performance. You are looking for something deeper.
See it if you want to spend a couple of hours being semi-entertained with a tribute to early-20th-century classic dramedies; can score a cheap ticket.
Don't see it if you're expecting to care about any of these privileged, pampered, and spoiled white and wealthy characters; need more diversity on stage.
See it if An interesting premise, but misses the mark. Relationships and motivations are not fully explained but there are some bright, funny moments
Don't see it if you want to see a memorable play that connects all the dots. Despite some charm, some of the dots were missing.
See it if You’d like to see a nice set. The story and acting is so painful, you’ll try to find distractions.
Don't see it if You want an actual funny, well-acted family comedy of errors type show. Save yourself time you can’t get back.
See it if you are intrigued by a prequel to a Boston blue blood version of “The Odd Couple” and an upity servant in the mode of “Upstairs Downstairs.”
Don't see it if you have no patience for a 2-hour, sometimes tedious drama with few funny and creative moments, uneven acting talent, cliche and no surprise
See it if You're easily entertained. Bland, pointless script performed by capable actors badly directed in a mash-up of diverse acting styles.
Don't see it if Don't. Vapid attempt at modern Philip Barry or George Kaufman without the laughs, wit or social commentary/critique; leaves one asking: Why?
See it if if you like comedies full of irony, exes and surprises. Bit slow at first, but then it warms up. Good for a night out on the town.
Don't see it if don't like comedies full of irony, exes, insults, etc.. If you expect drama or something serious.
See it if You like camp. It was “As the Stomach Turns”, as referenced in the play. Overall, it was enjoyable, for a comped ticket. The cast seemed out
Don't see it if Of synch. The Danish character seemed French, the “Master”, the son, was good, but, his vernacular matched no one else’s, which I guess made
