The plot has predictable elements, but the play is delightful, well-acted, funny, and engaging throughout. a treat for seniors!

See it if You are looking for a pleasant, diverting experience that will have you chuckling and appreciative of fine performances by the whole cast.

Don't see it if You are too young to be engaged by the challenges facing seniors or if you are a senior who is too old to laugh at yourself.

54
Dated, Cheesy

See it if You miss pre-1990s sitcoms. Marina Re was great as a variation on the manic pixie dream girl.

Don't see it if You like plays with an original, contemporary POV.

Theatre is Easy
November 29th, 2016

"‘Senior Moment’ uses one man’s move into assisted living as an opportunity for enthralling, sitcom-y humor…‘Senior Moment‘ is an enjoyable play that brings to light the experience of coping with aging and trying to grab at happiness in the short time one has left. The light-hearted, quip-filled humor is thoroughly engaging and laugh-inducing...The cast effectively milks every last laugh from Vogel’s script and convincingly embodies their characters."

"A charming comedy with serious undertones...Vogel writes in an old-fashioned Jewish-humor style but steers clear of schlock and schmaltz, stripping his characters to their more-or-less lovable essences while revealing what seems a hopeful, even sunny view of human nature. It’s a refreshing dose of positivity in a city blindsided by recent realities...A good deal of credit must also go to director Donald Brenner for drawing out such strongly convincing performances."
