We had a fun night out overall, but the premise of the play was darker than one would expect for a comedy. The main actresses did a great job of portraying their mismatched friendship, but there was far too much emphasis on the disturbing nature of Flo's OCD behavior.
We didn't see the original remake by Neil Simon, but this version of the story really missed the "funny" mark. The only hysteria going on came from Flo after her marital split, and consequent heartache and heartbreak. There wasn't much comedic value from Olive's gal pals becoming overwrought with worry over Flo's possible suicidal ideologies.
There were some laugh-out-loud parts of the play once the "Spaniard brothers" came onto the scene. The language gap -- caused by their thick accents and misused colloquialisms -- was definitely the highlight of the performance.
