Great play and the theatre was lovely! I have no issue with cursing but those that do might be offended by the F bombs that are used through out the play.

A dated look at an old issue. Not revelatory nor insightful.
Some clever lines. Good acting.

Parking great; theater nice; show, not so much. A lengthy and dull treatise on feminism offered by three generations of disappointed women. The pop culture clichés... continued

Corny, dated issues, predictable. Writing was banal. What is so hysterically funny about a women having cocktails at 5? Left at intermission.

The play was great. Very funny and thought provoking. The actors were wonderful. Only problem was my seat was right right orchestra and there were certain scenes I couldn't see.

The characters were not realistic. The play seemed contrived and was not funny. The actor's voices were shrill. It was hard to hear some of the lines. It was very hot in the mezzanine.
