Banal, Quirky

See it if A somewhat humorous show about 4 main characters. If you want some laughs.

Don't see it if Show that needs some cutting. A faster paced complete show.

Clever, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Great writing

See it if you would like to escape to the lives of four young characters, well-portrayed, in a quick paced comedy on a subject known to most.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy making light of others personal relationships or do not enjoy gay humor.

Cliched, Slow, Amusing

See it if u yearn for a gay sitcom set in NYC w/all the expected trappings (standard set-up, rapid-fire quips, stock characters, predictable end, etc)

Don't see it if u don't appreciate jokes at the expense of nearly every gay cliche; u seek any deep, profound or original thoughts on coping with a breakup. Read more

Cliched, Funny, Disappointing, Slow, Indulgent

See it if Fingerman's media-savvy gay sit-com is stuffed with gay zingers & semi-cartoon oddballs Lake's Rachel (female/hetero-normal) steals show

Don't see it if Dizzy comedy of manners takes too long to set up & lacks the punch it needs Yet actors work hard with just one note & most often succeed

Clever, Entertaining, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if Breakups, gayness, breakups gayness breakups. Nice intimate space Good cast. Just enough seating space. Much inside gay humor

Don't see it if Tennis match seating works and doesn't work. It takes superb actors to handle it. Much inside gay humor.

Slow, Very uncomfortable folding chairs

See it if You enjoy "eye candy" as there is an underwear scene with two of the guys.

Don't see it if Many scenes (especially early scenes) feature one-dimensional acting & lame one-liners. Didn't laugh much. Drags at 1 hr 40 min. Needs cuts

Endless zingers, Spot on character work, Sitcommy, Funny, Character study minus plot

See it if an LGBT romp with excellent cast & intimate staging is your cup of latte, skirting dangerously close to caricature but laugh filled

Don't see it if LGBT characters & situations are not 2 your liking, no way out seating with no knee room distresses U, intimate staging 2 close 4 comfort

Gay guy gets dumped, friends and sister to the rescue

See it if Charming contemporary gay comedy. Fast-paced with lots of zingers (perhaps too many). Talented cast. Tiny theater with seats on two sides

Don't see it if you're not up for light comedy with gay characters. Thin plot but lots of fun. Believable characters, not too much on the nelly side.

"I just laughed my ass off at a performance of 'Adam Minus Josh,' a potent original comedy about gay dating by Dan Fingerman that's like evolved Neil Simon through a 'Mean Girls' prism...Reid's character is a bit too weird for me when first introduced, but there's more balance to him soon thereafter...The four actors have undeniable chemistry, keeping up with each other at a farcical speed, allowing Fingerman's breathlessly adroit use of language to shine."
