I was surprised at how great our seats were! The play was terrific. Great writing and acting. We enjoyed the whole experience. The Geffen is a great venue with lots of restaurants nearby. I encourage anyone to use Goldstar.

Purchased Rear Mezzanine and the theatre was kind enough to "upgrade" me to Orchestra since the theatre wasn't as well sold as it could have been. That was a nice treat!

This play was hilarious! So great for feminists or people who have studied it, or even those who are just aware of the changing landscape and current "hookup culture." Very well-written play, very fun night.

We ended up with excellent seats, orchestra level back row, which at the Geffen is still very close. The play was thoughtful and funny though the story felt a bit... continued

Delightful script. This was a preview performance and there still is a little work to do but, overall, this was a very entertaining play with a great cast.

From start to finish this fabulous play delivered an entertaining performance by top notch actors, inspiring thought provoking conversations. It was a tapestry of history and real life emotions about relationships.

I went with two girlfriends and we all found it entertaining and provocative. It led to a great discussion about husbands and marriage on the drive home.

Loved it! The young actress playing the 20-something woman was fabulous!
