Too didactic. Acting weaker than usual from Theater J, especially the main character.

But the fact that many Jews are wantabees (something else) is done well. And the Marcus character steals the show.

This play is not nearly as funny as the promotional material would like one to believe. There are some moments of promise in the first act, but the second half drags. I found myself wondering when it would end.

The play was very well done - characters, acting, set design, lighting. It probably isn't Broadway material, but very enjoyable. There is not a bad seat in the house.
