Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if A good recreation of a long running Broadway play on a small economical staging. Some good acting.

Don't see it if Not constant energy. Actors at times seemed to lose pace.

Great writing, Disappointing, Entertaining, Slow

See it if you want to capture the big deal it was to come out in the early 70's - the writing is spot on and from that time portraying Italian Philly.

Don't see it if you want a play that is all together - it lacks cohesion, actor sincerity, is difficult to hear-missed many lines and the set does not help.

"The play is endearingly dated...Innaurato’s piece was written before the dawn of the hyper-sensitivity that would make us feel guilty about laughing at the play’s 'politically incorrect' one-liners about ethnicity, class, weight, sexuality, and more. As a result, theater attendees in 2018 will probably find this THIS 'Gemini' more funny than audiences did 41 years ago...The entire cast of 'Gemini' is wonderful."

“I enjoyed this production. Though, at times, the show seemed to have a rather low energy. There are many moments in the play where the action is simply the actors standing around and talking to each other, which is not a problem in itself, though it seemed that a few times the actors were waiting for the next exciting thing to happen...When the play was allowed to land, it was a joy to watch, particularly, the moments between Francis and his father."
