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 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 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 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 know someone involved in the production and you need to be a supportive family member or friend.
Don't see it if You know someone involved with the production and you can't keep a straight-face while telling them how wonderful it was... NOT!
See it if You can sit through bad theater and chalk it up to a learning experience as to why things don't work and what to avoid.
Don't see it if You're looking for an enjoyable time at the theater.
See it if You know someone in the cast.
Don't see it if You want to see something amusing. It’s not funny and boring. Acting is disappointing. The good reviews are obviously shills.
See it if You don't mind when some actors don't do much more than recite lines. If you don't mind not understanding why the 2nd act even exists.
Don't see it if If you like a gut ripping, hilarious show. If you expect perfection.
See it if To support lesser-known, off-Broadway theatres, nice set, intimate theatre space.
Don't see it if Over acting, actors who talk towards the audience instead of each other, bad blocking, cliched bad sitcom pilot script.
See it if If you just want to be distracted, and don't care what you're watching, this show is for you.
Don't see it if You don't like cliched, over the top, predictable, unfunny comedies.
See it if Can't find a reason to see it. I guess if you know a cast member and you want to support them.
Don't see it if It is repetitious. Too long by half an hour. 90% of the play is made up of stories, so that we are told what happens... all the time.
See it if You want to get out of the heat! One gem was the older gentleman that played the House Servant. He embodied the part.
Don't see it if You have any other option. The acting was not good, the directing was terrible, and the writing...tired and not funny.
