The play was enjoyable, particularly the 2nd act which moves at a wonderful pace and has some of the most amusing dialogue of the evening. The parts played by the mother and the baby sitter add great humor to the play and were very entertaining....continued

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

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.

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 offered by the "hot doomsday chick" (herself a cliché) fail to enlighten, despite...continued

The performance was enjoyable, as it had its moments. Who does not like to have a giggle when out for an evening of theatre? Yet, the plot premise was weak and scattered in its approach, did not push any novel agenda. I had the feeling that I was...continued

We enjoyed the play. I had lived through the era that the characters were discussing and the issues so it was relevant to my theoretical knowledge of the women's movement. There was a story line in addition to the display and passage of...continued

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

Being an unreconstructed 60s male, I had reservations going into a Gina Gionfriddo play, given what I consider her rather militant feminist bent. Glad I went. Excellently constructed and pitching both sides of several of the questions in the...continued

Enjoyed the play very much , but the seats were disappointing. The description offered front mezzanine and our seas were the next to last row in the mezzanine which was really the balcony. We had difficulty hearing at times.
