Entertaining, Relevant, Resonant

See it if you like older women-younger man scenarios, a daughter opposed, interesting turn abouts. Melodramatic. A thought provoking ending.

Don't see it if you don't like melodrama or can't empathize with the characters situation.

Absorbing, Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Cliched

See it if you are looking for a light romantic play with a little family drama mixed in. My 30 year old guest loved it & empathized with the daughter!

Don't see it if You are looking for a serious play with profound meaning. It is entertaining and has some clever dialogue but definitely doesnt go further.

Entertaining, Funny, Great writing, Original, Clever

See it if You enjoy great writing and an ending twist that will leave you talking.

Don't see it if You only like musicals.

Romantic, Uncomfortable

See it if You want to support actors in an unfortunate production.

Don't see it if You're looking for quality theatre.

"The interplay among the characters ascends from what begins as a light domestic comedy into operatic breast beating as emotions get heated; for all the play’s superficially realistic touches, however, very little registers as real or, for that matter, original. It’s the kind of material that wou...
