See it if You like melodrama. This has some interesting ideas and clever staging but never quite takes hold.
Don't see it if You can’t overlook some pretty glaring acting flaws as well as a contrived script. Its entertaining enough but far from great.
See it if you'd be amused by a two-hander odd couple sitcom, driven by a thoroughly unbelievable 9-year old
Don't see it if you find child actor cuteness cloying or are annoyed by dialogue that goes for a laugh at the expense of any believable speech or behavior
See it if you want to see a rare play carried by both a septuagenarian and a child, and enjoy a simple, direct play that hits the expected beats.
Don't see it if your teeth are put on edge by a child's performance that has pace and talent but precious little spontaneity. Masur's masterful.
See it if Some of it is charming, and the acting by the older actor was natural and engaging.
Don't see it if You like a play with more to say and don't care for feel-good plays that star children. Some of the young girl's words were unintelligible.
See it if You want to see performance by young child who sails through performance and her counterpart, an actor who does great job in his role.
Don't see it if The child was difficult to understand at times-it might be better if she slowed down. Liked the basic idea of story.
See it if you want to see a Seinfeld episode (nothing happens) starring a 9yr old. Child actress carries the weight of 75min no intermission dramedy.
Don't see it if you are looking fwd to Richard Masur doing more than sit in a chair & drink. He doesn't get a monologue until Act 3.
See it if Talented child actress although hard to understand her enunciation Some comic moments, but not enough
Don't see it if You do not want to see an annoying kid get under your skin.
See it if You love a child actor. Like intelligent scripts.
Don't see it if You mind missing a high percentage of the spoken words, because the woman (9 year old actor) can't yet enunciate well.
See it if You will be as charmed by the blithely talkative 9-year-old girl as she is by herself.
Don't see it if You're expecting both actors/characters to be well rounded/fully developed or a play that will be memorable.
