This was the worst piece of crap I have ever seen and I've seen bad productions before. I'm sorry to the actors and they did try their best but other than the costumes being fantastic, there is absolutely nothing redeeming about this show. Only...continued

"Mind-numbingly awful and inexcusably pretentious." That's a quote from one of our group who sat, stunned and amused, through this witless concoction of hammy acting, time travel, farting, earthquakes, beaded flapper dresses, tsunamis, laughable...continued

I never post reviews except in extraordinary cirmcumstances. In fact, the only one I've posted before was a rave for a play that was extraordinarily good but unheralded. The case with Lavender is the opposite. It is an extraordinarily bad,...continued

I tried to award zero stars but this site requires at least one before the review is accepted, however one star is one too many for this fiasco. A nonsensical plot, cheesy set and oh - the embarrassingly
stereotypical latina character made me...continued

The only good thing about the show is it only 60 minutes in duration. However, it was still 55 minutes too long.

Let's cut to the bone as this play had only two redeeming values: 1) it was barely an hour long; and 2) the two male leads were mostly naked in the opening scene. The sparse costumes didn't add a single thing to the show but the guys were nice to...continued

We were very disappointed... All that work to organize what seemed like a talented cast, impressive costumes, and the rest of the production, and all it takes is an unsophisticated, non-evocative, infantile, boring script to make it all a waste. ...continued

Nanin should not write a play as a vehicle for acting out what she wishes to be. There was little I enjoyed about this play. I actually felt sorry for what seemed to be a cast of good actors surrounding Nanin in her dream fantasy without a...continued

You must see this play! It is so spectacularly bad that you will find yourself bonding with your fellow audience members over surviving this nonsensical train wreck. There was not an intermission...which I'm confident is the only reason there...continued

I'm sorry to have to report that the production was less than enjoyable. The storyline was silly and the acting was amateur. The costumes were the only bright part of the play. I was extremely disappointed, and thankful that it was shorter than...continued

I would have to agree with the first reviewer. The play was horrible! Thought initially the story may be good but it just wasn't unfortunately. The play was only an hour long and many people walked out never to return in the middle of the play. So...continued

This play is NOT about lavender marriages in any way, shape or form except for the fact that the characters say "lavender marriage" about 5 times in one 2 minute stretch. Any reviews of this giving it more than 2 stars are obviously from someone...continued

For the discerning playgoer, there are ominous signs of a play's value before the production begins. When you read the program and discover that the playwright is also the director, that's a danger sign. It means only one sensibility is at play...continued

Needs work. Was unintentionally amusing. Too bad. This theatre usually does good work.

Misleading ad. Not a story about what was going on in Hollywood but about a lost in time traveler who ends up with four people from the era, only one of whom is recognizable (Rudolph Valentino). Ghastly - writing, acting, story, directing. I...continued

Not as billled. It had little or nothing to do with the Lavender Marriages. the set-up and the concept had potential (think "A Mid Summer Night's Deam) but none of that was ever developed.There was no story arc, no tension, no resolution. Nice...continued

I'm sorry to say this was BAD. I was expecting a history lesson on "Lavender Marriages" but instead was horribly disappointed. Instead I got a mixture of poor acting, horrible accents and ... fart jokes? It should have been billed as a "SNL"...continued
