Loved this play! You really have to listen to the actors to appreciate all the great lines. The writing is great and most of the acting was top notch. The only downside of the evening was the comical "Wine Down Sunday" that the Geffen offered....continued

Very good seats - excellent play, the British Accents were extremely good - I didn't detect one slip up - the first act was slightly better than the 2nd act. However, overall it was very good. Stage sets were first class - and the theatre...continued

Very well done. You just need a basic understanding of current events to understand the humor. If you're not into politics, however, it will be largely wasted.

Very funny political farce. Long for a comedy but it moves really fast and I wasn't aware of the length during the performance. All around great cast with stand out performances by Michael McKean and Dakin Matthews. We went on the night of the Q...continued

Funny, trenchant, beautifully performed by a crackerjack cast. Jefferson Mays, Dakin Matthews, and Michael McKean are fantastic together.

My wife and I both loved this play. The dialog was great, the acting was terrific, and there were laughs aplenty. Being English, I noted that some of the humor was lost on the American audience, but there was plenty which translated just fine. ...continued

This is a times to NOT read the critics reviews in the papers. Go an experience the piece for yourself. The wordsmithing is worth the price of the ticket. Enjoy.

Beautifully acted, clever writing but lacked real critical depth/ examination. Sitcom on stage. Love the beauty of the Geffen. Easy parking.
