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

I'm afraid that I am of a generation where this isn't "cutting edge", it's "history". Everything old is new again.... Women/man hashing over the past, trying to put their experiences into context.

Woulda/coulda/shoulda. If it feels good, do...continued

Really enjoyed the play...love Amy Brenneman, but the babysitter made the play. Seats were poor...4th row against the wall, left side. Unable to see stage left.

The Geffen is easy to get to and parking is so convenient. The play was wonderful, if a little preachy at times. We love Amy Brenneman from her days as Judge Amy and she is as beautiful and talented as ever. Also outstanding was Virginia Kull...continued

The Geffen Playhouse is an amazing venue - comfortable seats, great lighting, and intimate. The show was wonderful. Both my girlfriend and I had a great time. The show was brilliantly written, set design was well constructed, and actors on point!...continued

Didn't like it. Left at intermission. Acting wasn't very real or believable.

Funny, thoughtful play> It veers into a little twinkling fantasy playing out, what I guess that we often think, oh the things we might have done if only... What? Theater with some ideas. Wow. Combined with good acting and some terrific lines made...continued

we received excellent tickets in the fourth row side section. the show had a very slow first half but it built the story and the second half moved faster and was enjoyable. The acting was excellent.

Wonderful piece. Dark and funny. Excellent performances. Love the idea of what the women's movement means to 3 generations of women. Terrific writing. Inspired me to work harder on my own play in development now. Check it out......continued

Great seats, terrific play - Geffen is always a positive experience. I'd love to read the play and then spend a semester discussing it! Not a bad note on the stage. Loved Alice!

I have to say, Amy Brenneman was so superb as an actor in this play, she made everyone else on stage seem like community theater. They each had their moments, but her moment was the ENTIRE 2:30 minute play. It's well written and so intelligent,...continued
