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.

Don't see it if If you do not like comedies. If you rather a musical.
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 Are looking for a comedy. Some parts were ok but the script needs fine tuning
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
See it if you want to see a play with a well planned plot structure and a beautiful set.

See it if you enjoy sitcom plays with clearly drawn characters and gags, some good comic expressions and some jokes that do land throughout the play.
Don't see it if Mind some inconsistent performances and not all the characters being funny. Some plotting problems and very broad humor.

Don't see it if You are expecting over the top play, still there are a lot of things need to be worked out.
See it if Slow-moving light average comedy with a few Chuckles here and there but not enough to sustain it for a 2 hour duration. .
Don't see it if You're looking for more than a few laughs on occasion
See it if Wonderful set, lights, sound, costumes. Comfortable seating British butler steals the show. Some good laughs.
Don't see it if Drawing Room comedy is not dead. But it hasn’t been resurrected in this production either. Not as funny as it ought to be because too
