About the Show

The Seeing Place Theater presents this warm comic drama about four flawed but likeable lower-middle-class New Yorkers who are trying to stay afloat in the deep water of day-to-day living.

Entertaining, Romantic, Intelligent, Great staging

See it if If you can forgive a cast of unbalanced talent and experience. A plot of 2 couples w/relationships going in opposite directions is enjoyed.

Don't see it if Stoners having the same life problems as others and dealing with same feelings seems unrealistic to you. Read more

Amateurish, Boring, Disappointing, Has potential, Relevant

See it if you enjoy plays about 30 something singles navigating the difficulties of relationships, finances and life in general, in NYC.

Don't see it if you expect interesting characterizations, in-depth insights into life and relationships, highly professional acting, writing and production.

“An intimate, almost too detail-filled production...The main problem with this production is that while concentrating on the moment to moment Ms. Cronican failed to see the whole...This 'Jack’ lacked coherence and pacing and also seemed a bit under-rehearsed with lines too often recited with hesitation...I can’t deny that there were some beautiful moments...but moments don’t necessarily add up to a show.”

“The charming script has many juicy acting opportunities, though the somewhat unkempt production does leave many unrealized. Still, the work has some genuinely charged partnering moments...I am a fan of this company, their spirit, their go-get-it nature, their mission statement, the plays they choose to produce. Though this work was unrealized, I will not give up on their work: despite some red flags, there are other beacons of light.”

"A quirky and affectionate play...It's a treat, then, to see the fine job The Seeing Place has done with capturing both the play's neurotic humor and its heartfelt tenderness, in an intimate setting that leaves you feeling as though you were eavesdropping on the lives of the characters...The cast of four more than meets the demands of this gentler piece...Color me impressed, and let me urge you to check them out for yourself."
