Clever, Hilarious, Original, Quirky, Dizzying

See it if you like to laugh.Female BFF turn their shared past into slapstick while wearing sequins and great shoes. Surprises and silliness run amok.

Don't see it if you hate farce. Part scripted, part improved this is pretty much as far out there as anything I have seen.

Funny, Fluffy, Quirky, Great comic timing, Slapstick

See it if You enjoy physical comedy. You like sketch shows, like SNL. You don't mind when actors involve the audience. You want to be entertained.

Don't see it if You don't like sketch comedy. You don't like it when actors involve the audience. You want a serious drama.

Clever, Quirky, Hilarious, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You like physical comedy with a relatable storyline that includes the audience in a fun way. The two actresses perform with perfect timing.

Don't see it if You dislike silliness, clowning around and are usually grumpy. Have no sense of humor, forgot your school years, and like perfection.

Quirky, Original, Disappointing, High energy

See it if you like fluffy, slapstick comedies. The acting in this one is quite energetic. Think 3 Stooges with estrogen.

Don't see it if you dislike slapstick comedy.

Clever, Funny, Entertaining, Refreshing, Original

See it if A night with two happy go lucky, both deserved of sitcom work, ladies doin' their act is something you want to catch. A comedy duo w/charm.

Don't see it if They have lots of promise, but the high spirits (which are catching) aren't enough. The show needs reigning in, focusing and editing.

Funny, Quirky, Original

Don't see it if If you don't like the actors engaging with the audience or dislike comedy tropes

Funny, Original

See it if A play about 2 BFFs & secrets are revealed. feels like you're out with friends and you get to hear all their dirty laundry.

Don't see it if It's off Broadway. Small room in a building. I would definitely see this and support this small production. An hour of laughter.

Theater In The Now
May 17th, 2016

""The actual plot is a play within a play that should be a fifteen-minute 'SNL' skit and not an hour and a half production...There is no doubt that these two have talent, but the production 'Whether We Like It Or Not' was like watching the same joke over and over again...If there had been a director, a lot of the flaws in the writing could have been brought to light. Blanche might have not been so one-note and Stella might not have been so stale."

NY Theatre Guide
May 9th, 2016

"The two women on stage both did a splendid job, but a special shout-out must be given to Blanche, played by Shelby. Her comic timing and dramatic expressions are spot-on…'Whether We Like It Not' is not a didactic tale with an ulterior motive. It is an exciting, dramatic story with plot twists and turns that make for a great way of spending 60 minutes with a friend or a family member."
