Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Absorbing

See it if Funny, lighthearted although thought provoking, is about experimenting with open relating by unprepared crowd.

Don't see it if Expected much worse play judging by critics review and was up for a positive surprise. Great actors. Conversation that needs to be happening

Cliched, Disappointing

See it if You are fine with stereotypes, prejudice, and non-comedic “comedies.”

Don't see it if This play insults anyone in the lifestyle. It implies that swingers have unprotected sex leading to pregnancy and STIs, which is false!

BroadwayWorld

"'The Sex Party', has many ingredients for success; an intriguing idea, an excellent cast and a beautiful set, but is let down with a sledgehammer script and meandering message that goes nowhere. There's a lot happening at once, but the entire play is as shallow as a puddle."

"‘The Sex Party’ feels at least three drafts away from knowing what it wants to be, let alone actually being any cop."

"Johnson certainly has balls, wading into the gender-identity debate via a sex comedy, two things most theatres wouldn’t attempt. Shame the result is so poor, though."

"For all its knowing bouts of crassness, The Sex Party is sensitively handled. A return to form for Johnson, it invites us to think about what we choose, who we choose, and how we arrive at being truly ourselves."

The Guardian (UK)

"The room exposes its bigots and we finally see the point of Hutton’s character but as more plot-points are lobbed at us in the closing moments it feels much less like a sitcom than an entire series rolled into one production."

"There’s an interesting play lurking somewhere here; these fine actors could easily do it justice. "

"Anyone expecting an evening of vicarious fun will find instead a catalogue of concerns embracing 'textbook transphobia' one minute and cis-male self-definition the next."

The Arts Desk

"But the overall sense is of a play which...meanders and fails to have much that is interesting to say about sex and desire, or enough passion to engage the audience with its energy and jokes."
