Book didn't deliver, Premise had potential, Resonant / humorous / sweet, Ambitious / bit slow

See it if you want to support shows/co's @ Theater for New City. Cute show, w/a few funny performances. Saturday matinee was packed, lots of chuckles.

Don't see it if you can't sit through slow 100min show w/no intermission. Wanted SO much to like it more, but playwright doesn't deliver on premise promise. Read more

Almost-funny, Too many plotlines, Ambitious, Way too long

See it if You want to support new plays. The bones of a fun story are somewhere in there.

Don't see it if you want a tight, coherent story. Too many plotlines that come out of nowhere. Over long. I thought it ended, but now, one more scene to go. Read more

Too many furniture moves, Slow, Not witty enough or not enough thought provoking exchanges among characters

See it if you want to torture/punish yourself for any misdeeds,

Don't see it if you like characters who do not make sense with lines or with voice inflections.
