I really loved the characters and the dialogue. There were some very clever conversations and funny moments. As a married person of 15 years, there were some great insights into marriage, individuality and humanity in general. The actors were...continued

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!

The play was quite dated (about feminism and "having it all"').Maybe to a younger woman it would be interesting but not to someone who has been through the history. And it was quite wordy and preachy about it too. I thought Amy Brennerman was...continued

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 contrived at times. All the actors were excellent; both Virginia Kull and Alice...continued

Well acted and an engaging story but it's too long and too "talky" - trying to squeeze in the history of the women's movement during an evening of theater is a difficult task!

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.
