Delightful, Great staging

See it if Want to see a silly fantasy in the mind of an obsessed fan. Cleverly staged and overacted just the right amount.

Don't see it if Need substance. A bit too long - could have been trimmed to be a one-act play.

Silly, Creative, A bit unfocused, Great acting

See it if This is a goofy play that is a lot of fun if you don't mind suspending your disbelief for adult swim-style random humor.

Don't see it if It was a bit long and had (in my opinion) unnecessary attempted moments of gravity amongst the madcap silliness.

"Peter Gil-Sheridan madly conjures up a très-gay fantasy that imagines his own storybook marriage to the glamorous tennis superstar Rafael Nadal...Overlong and terribly silly, the farce is bolstered by the campy pleasures of director Morgan Gould’s staging, which cultivates hothouse performances amid a blizzard of tennis balls."
