Absorbing, Great writing, Great acting, Resonant, Funny

See it if You like really smart , insightful comedy about family and coming out. Brilliant characters and actors

Don't see it if If you’re just soooo anti gay that you can’t deal with the subject and if that be the case perhaps you should see this play.

Must-see / highly recommend, Near-perfect staging / good lighting, Well-written / very funny / bit moving, Great ensemble / excellent performances, Resonant / absorbing / relevant

See it if you like a strong ensemble, excellently directed, that spews spot-on acting w/near-perfect comedic timing (plus a giant drag-queen to boot).

Don't see it if you can't deal w/anything GLBTQ; moms who can't deal w/the gayness of their offspring; the makings of a gay love-story; giant drag-queens. Read more

"Gill expertly writes each character as three dimensional, giving each complex backgrounds, making it clear that each benefits from knowing the others. A mundane Scrabble game is as revealing as Truth or Dare. Phone calls uncover the wonderful interdependencies of this group. The biggest delight of this comedy is watching Kitty change, not only accepting what she found abnormal, but finding methods to enjoy herself in new ways with new people."

"Gill hasn’t quite merged his characters and themes into a cohesive whole, and he needs to acquaint himself with the Delete key...But he knows how to make us laugh, and, a few contrivances notwithstanding, care a little, too...The saving graces: Gill writes funny, with a keen ear for contemporary dialogue and neuroses, and Tillotson directs with varying rhythms and an ability to plumb whatever depths there are in a pretty superficial comedy.”
