Long, Achieves its limited goals, Dinner theater quality, Fluffy

See it if you like mild, uninspiring entertainment. Very accessible material. Most songs are merely fine, guitar interludes better. Some gd lines.

Don't see it if you like sophisticated theater. TAC is simple, frothy.Classic meet-cute plays out predictably. TAC doesn't belong in NYC. Needs cuts!

Romcom miss, Fluffy, Disappointing, Laughable, Cliched

See it if you find that laughing AT a show is just as satisfying as laughing WITH a show. You are a Rudner fan.

Don't see it if You can't abide by poor acting, poor singing, cliched text bad songs and useless music interludes. You are a Rudner fan. Read more

July 31st, 2019

"Rita Rudner in a Sitcom With Songs. This new 'comedy musical' is lesser material than she deserves, but Ms. Rudner delivers an innocuously pleasant evening."

★★ "The nearly two-hour musical reminds us why sitcoms are under 30 minutes long...Most of the show is so obvious and inoffensive that it rarely induces smiles, let alone laughs. The underrehearsed cast struggles to sell hoary shtick and telegraphed punch lines in between country-tinged songs."

"The New Musical Comedy 'Two's a Crowd' at 59E59 Theaters is a Charmer"

"…this one rolls snake eyes…a tsunami of gags sorely in need of a laugh track."

★★ "'Rita Rudner's Vegas-Themed Show.' The comedian's innumerable comic gifts are squandered in this musical misfire."

"Even when Rudner is delivering lines (to Tom or, oddly enough, the audience) that seem to come straight from one of her stand-up routines, her skill with this kind of observational humor is hard to resist."

August 2nd, 2019

"The play's set-up is about as familiar as room service when two total strangers in their 60's are assigned the same hotel room in a Vegas hotel and no other rooms prove available in Sin City. What happens proves as predictable--and gooey, sentimental--after the first few minutes."

"...charmer of a musical comedy, at 59e59 Theaters, where laughter is the name of the game, written by Ms. Rudner and hubby Martin Bergman who also directs....It's a wacky Wendy world and you will have some good fun in this humor-filled production."

July 22nd, 2019

"With astute veteran comedian Rita Rudner as writer and co-star, you get a laugh-filled couple of hours but a predictable rollout of familiar one-liners and a sit-com plot."

July 21st, 2019

"A pleasantly mediocre, nearly two-hour, time-passer…The score may easily be the best feature of this sappy, cliched, senior-citizen romcom…Tailor-made for the dinner theatre crowd…Rudner's…natural humor, however, hasn't translated well to this standard musical comedy."
