for a previous production "A kind of poor man’s 'Waiting for Godot,' Horovitz’s one-act is basically an extended comedy sketch about five schlemiels conniving and conspiring to get to the front of the line despite never ascertaining what they're waiting for... The script may still have a point to make but this overextended production muddies any comic message with amateurish acting that places inadvertant emphasis on a misogynist subplot." Full Review
for a previous production "If you're looking for a lesson on theatrical durability to be learned from Line, which has been at the same downtown theater for 40 years and reigns as New York City's longest-running play, that's one of the big ones. The length of the show's run speaks for itself, and it's been translated into more than 35 languages and performed around the world." Full Review
See it if you are interested in theatrical history. This is the longest running show in one venue. The young actors work hard to make the show succeed
Don't see it if gratuitous violence & sex disgust you. The 5 characters fight to be first in line without any reason except to be 1st. Each will do anything

Don't see it if If you are looking for bigger production value than pass.
See it if want to see one of the great existential plays of the American Theatre. A classic, simple in staging, profound in meaning.
