I would not recommend this to my dearest enemy. The playwright, Gina Gionfriddo, has been hailed as a genius by Variety. Too bad, because it's hard to improve if you're... continued

The Geffen is a wonderful playhouse. The show was well-acted and extremely entertaining. The dialogue was wonderful and there was never a moment when I lost interest. The audience seemed very pleased.

I really enjoyed the play. We laughed a lot, and I could identify with all the stuff they said. I loved her mother. That character had some of the best lines.

Some fine acting...particularly from the supporting cast. Raises issues worth discussing long after the curtain comes down. I recommend it.

The subject matter seemed dated, although some of the dialogue lines and "zingers" were good. The acting was tepid, at best.
