See it if Acting was excellent. Play was entertaining & funny. Venue was cute, very intimate. The dark humor reminded me of the Coen Brothers.

"Funniest play I've seen in years...Greek tragedy filtered through Mel Brooks...'Dyin' For It' concerns the father of a dysfunctional family who's been sent home from the hospital so he could die in his own bed...Murphy's comic genius taps the explosive humor in coupling the ordinary with the outrageous...The quartet of performers could give lessons in ensemble playing. They are all superb...The dazzling split-second timing must be credited to the splendid direction of Keating."
