I can find something to love in almost any theatre but this was one of the worst plays we've seen. Thank God the actors & set were good.

Peter Lefcourt is one of the sharpest wits in Hollywood. But this show just did not work for me. It was all fuzzy motivation and some very weak plotting. BUT I... continued

non reserved seats and patrons were kept in the lobby until just before the performance so sort of a cattle stampede once the doors were opened. I have a leg injury so... continued

Despite the nasty review from the Times's backup reviewer, this was terrific entertainment. Ignore her, as always, and go see it.

My friend and I laughed a lot and really enjoyed the play. It is important not to look for logic in this production, but just go with the flow. Others in the audience... continued

The play was a bit weird. I consider myself a smart person but there were times where I just didn't know what was going on.

Too loud. Everyone was yelling throughout the entire production. Director should turn the volume down.

In fairness I have to say that we left at intermission so I cannot tell if the second half got any better. We have been to school plays that were better. The play had... continued

Fun show. A play-within-a-play (actually more like eight plays-within-a-play) that never takes itself too seriously. The night I was there the audience was a little... continued

Great play, very funny, few in the audience understood the historical references, as I am afraid did the LA Times reviewer, Ms. Foley.

I love the Odyssey Theatre, but this review is about what is possibly the worst play I've ever seen.
