Jeff Goldblum is so quirky and convincing as Leonard in this intellectual fox trot. This is a great "lets-do-something-different-for-a-change" night out. It got us... continued

For a play that had to do with writers it was so poorly written.

Seminar was well acted, but the writing was somewhat disappointing. Very conventional storyline.

Not a literary giant but competent and funny. All cast did a good job portraying their characters. Fell the story line lost some punch toward the end but overall an enjoyable evening.

If "Seminar" hadn't been recommended to me by an editor at the L.A. Times, who had seen it in NY, I would have had no idea what it was about. Thank you, Steve Padilla! ... continued

Jeff Goldblum and the cast were simply superb. It was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon enjoying the theater and having a few laughs at the same time. Definitely a must see.

This play is much better, more fun, and more interesting than the hype! This promo blurb is misleading: "They soon find themselves attending a master class in ruthless... continued

Very enjoyable show. Yes, it's definitely a comedy, with one or two intelligent things to say about what makes good writing. There's really nothing deep about this... continued

While I appreciated the young actors, I felt Jeff Goldblum was miscast; he's a bit too sleek and fit to play a writer on the downhill side of a literary career. The play... continued

Some very funny moments, clever writing, and a convincing performance by Jeff Goldblum. But not enough to give it must see status.
