I would like to give this 1.5 stars.

My wife would give it 1 star; she hated it, saying "That is 90 minutes of my life that I'll never be able to get back." If she had her druthers, we would have walked out mid-performance (as did others in...continued

I loved the play. The actresses were great and I felt 9contrary to a few reviewers) that it was political (what was the quote--the personal is the political?) No, they didn't debate bailouts, taxes, etc but they covered deep differences and...continued

The actors very very good but the play doesn't fulfill it's promise. The script needs serious work.

The actors were amazing in all they had to memorize. The relationship built up gradually to the point at which they really communicated.

Had expected such high quality performance of an excellent script at the Rep. Rep has deteriorated recently and this was a breath from fresh air. We laughed (a lot) and cried some too.

Was not what I expected. Thought it would be political. Enjoyed it...a bit too long. Acting was excellent. The voice of the heavy set actress was annoying as I'm sure it was suppose to be.

The 2 actors were wonderful and it was well written!...the only complaint we had is that it was at the Lyceum and there were 2 plays running at the same time...they split the theater in half and they brought in seats for our performance that were...continued

This play was such a treat. It succeeded in being both poignant and funny, with a number of out-loud laughs, which are always good for the soul. Crawford and Gilb (or is it Glib?!) were great and played off of each other very well. Highly...continued

The acting was very good, but the script was so-so. The description given as a politically based back and forth discussion was not at all accurate. There was virtually no political debate.

Enjoyable and relevent. Started a little slow but picked up nicely. Acting very well done. Beware-90 min performance with no intermission.
