Keen Company presents A.R. Gurney's comic drama about a middle-aged man and woman who meet at a cocktail party and ponder beginning the relationship that eluded them 30 years ago. More…
While the pair rediscover each other and themselves, a bevy of delightful guests rally behind them. With poignancy and laughs, this classic Gurney play reminds us of the infinite possibilities in life just waiting to be pursued. A romantic tale of missed connections and hope for new beginnings.
See it if If you're sentimental about reconnecting with past romantic partners and don't mind seeing a dated play with corny stock characters.
Don't see it if Just don't bother w/this one ... embarrassingly cliched characters run in and out of this out of date play where you care about no one.

Don't see it if you want to be entertained. There was no point or message. Just a bunch of people engaged in small talk that went no where.

Don't see it if If you want something lively, where people change and don't repeat the same mistake
See it if Not the first show I would recommend. A little slow and obvious. The book left the actors out on a limb and never saved them.
Don't see it if Not Gurney's best although similar in theme to many of his productions. Nice that the ending was ambiguous nothing else required any thought

See it if There are some amusing moments, mostly thanks to Markel who does a great job at playing many comic characters - she steals the show.
Don't see it if You enjoy stories that can be based in reality. Nearly everything that occurs is completely unrealistic, character choices make no sense.
See it if If you like A.R. Gurney as I do. It is funny at times, good plot. Gurney usual Anglo type play set in Boston deals with older people coming
Don't see it if to grips with life. Don't see it if you don't like 1 actor in multi roles. The character Ruth is very weak and it gets a little slow attimes
See it if you can appreciate Gurney's lofty slice-of-WASP-life drama where a lot is said but not a lot happens, esp. on this tony Boston rooftop.
Don't see it if you expect explosive drama or uproarious comedy from this understated play about missed connections & second chances; you hate multi-casting
