Refreshing, Great acting, Dated, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if You like the kitchen sink style of storytelling. You want a mix of comedy & drama. You want an charmingly retro play that entertains.

Don't see it if You only want to see the movie cast. You don't like one- set plays where you hear about events. You want a more contemporary story.
