Usually, it's unwise to judge a book by its cover, or a show by its title, but in the case of Oh Dad, Poor Dad ..., the show is every bit as nutty, twisted and absurd as its infamously memorable title would suggest. The first play of Pulitzer- and Tony-nominee Arthur Kopit (Wings, Indians and Nine), this "farce in three scenes" was a hit off-Broadway, on Broadway and on the silver screen in a film adaptation starring Rosalind Russell. Lots of guys think their dad is a stuffed shirt, but poor Jonathan's pop is actually stuffed, i.e. preserved and toted around in a casket by his over-bearing mother. Little wonder things get complicated when he and his mother arrive at a luxury resort with Dad, Venus flytraps and a piranha in tow. Learn More

We too thoroughly enjoyed this performance. I've been urging my friends to go see it. Very well acted. I agree that the cast worked well together and the women were a bit better than the men. The chairs are uncomfortable, but not paralyzing and the play was almost 3 hours with intermissions. But the time flew by. Parking is ample and you can buy beverages and snacks in the lobby.
