Thoroughly enjoyable theatre experience. The acting was superb and the setting was very unique and worked well. Overall, the play was quite good, though more serious than expected, but there was sufficient comedic humor to keep it from being...continued

This was not my cup of tea. Nothing wrong with acting, subject matter just was uninteresting and I thought boring. My companion and I left during intermission as well as many others. Drury lane Oakbrook Theater is also very uncomfortable as far as...continued

Loved it! Performances were great - funny, poignant. I think everyone can relate to this family and feel as if they're a part of it. The set really helped the show feel intimate. Go see it!

It's always a joy to see Mike Nussbaum on the stage. The cast was OK, but the actress playing the mother was miscast. After viewing this, it is obvious that Neil Simon's work doesn't hold up. 20 years ago he was the the toast of Broadway, but...continued

I really enjoyed this play, and for some reason I wasn't expecting to, even though I have really enjoyed the other Neil Simon plays I've seen. The actors were really good; particuarly Carmen Roman as Kate, and Mike Nussbaum as the grandfather....continued

Most of the cast was terrific, particularly Mike Nussbaum and the two young men who played the Jerome brothers. The set was impressive, the direction, acting and execution were first rate. Though a bit dated, this is still a very good play that...continued

This is a terrific play - 1 of the best. However, I cannot give it a well deserved 5 stars because, even though, there were printed & audio warnings, there were cell phones ringing, everywhere in the theatre, EVERY 5 to 10 minutes. Warnings...continued

We enjoyed the comic elements of the play, but found the serious subplot of marital infidelity too serious in tone. (This is a fault of the book, not the direction.) The actor who played the grandfather had great timing and delivery of lines. ...continued

For some reason, I thought that this production would be done as a musical. It was not. It is a semi-biography about the character becoming a success in getting to Broadway. The performances of all of the characters was excellent. We were sitting...continued

Acting,set design,sound,lighting-superior!
Witty dialogue could not sustain the 2 hour and 40 minute running time!
Theatre seats have great leg room but they are EXTREMELY narrow and I am a small woman. Bring a parka, the air-conditioning blows...continued

A wonderful show laced with humor and the very realistic human side of a not-so-perfect family. I would give Mike Nussbaum 5 stars and the show itself 3 1/2.
