How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Went on the first preview. It would be hard to recommend to anyone. Show seemed unsure of what it was trying to be - marketed as a comedy but played much more like a slow-paced wartime drama. Heavy Italian accents have been obtrusively thrust upon the massive ensemble for no apparent benefit, and no dialect coach was credited (which could explain the inconsistency and quality of the accents). Still, the play does have some dramatically effective moments and a fantastic performance from Anthony Fusco in a supporting role, so those are the rewards for those who make it past the confusing and incongruous first act.
