Great acting, Problematic, Disappointing, Ambitious, Confusing

See it if you value great acting over a show successfully making the point it's trying to make.

Don't see it if a show with a very problematic take on feminism/sexism will bother you.

The New York Times
November 11th, 2015

"By the end of this unlikely comedy, no one feels much like a party...Ms. McGraw’s script keeps asking its characters to behave in ways too absurd for comedy and not funny enough for farce...For the satire to be more scathing, it ought to have some relation to observable reality...Still, under Portia Krieger’s direction, the fine actors are entertaining to watch."

Theatre is Easy
November 10th, 2015

"Playwright Caroline V. McGraw has managed to not only paint a realistic picture, but also provide a meditation on the bigger themes in the background: mortality, meaningful relationships, and consent, to name a few. All three actors are excellent, giving deep and layered performances...Not only is the writing great, but it is backed up by a fantastic creative and production team...'The Bachelors' is an incredibly honest new play that I hope will introduce people to this excellent new playwright."

Stage Buddy
November 10th, 2015

"Through it's clever dialogue, especially Kevlar's drunken tangents and retorts, and also intimate conversations and moments between the three men, playwright Caroline V. McGraw makes sure that we really see the truth within these characters and can understand their situations as if they are our own. In only one hour, 'The Bachelors' really makes you think about the choices you make the consequences they have. You'll leave feeling slightly unresolved, but life has no resolution, right?"

Theater In The Now
November 23rd, 2015

"The story is daring and engaging but when the play ends, it's possible you may be shocked that it wasn't intermission. McGraw sets up many plot points but never resolves them. I suppose it's a good thing when you're left wanting more...Regardless, what is present in the script is interesting…'The Bachelors' is a daring and polarizing production and that's what makes it so great. No matter how the play makes you feel, you're eager to discuss what you just saw and that’s a win in my book."
