The playwright incredibly blends a hilarious script with serious discussions of current science and math philosophical concepts (and trends in landscaping as well). More substance with more laughs.

The play was enjoyable, but long. Unfortunately uncomfortable seating for almost three hours stole from the experience.

Yawn! Well acted, but a bit too heady for a 3 hour performance.

Brilliant production of an outstanding play. The cast is incredible. The script is amazing. Saw this back in 95 at ACT. This production was even better.

The actors were all amazing and did justice to the beautifully thought-provoking AND comical piece. Definitely a must-see.

Play on words was a wonder. Seats fit for midgets made for discomfort.

This was a very cerebreal play. At times it was hard to follow the dialogue and plot and seemed a bit slow going. Wish I had read more about the plot before seeing the play. But at the end of it all I just didn't care.

Niether my date nor myself cared about the laborious path to a plot by intermission, so we left.
The joy in the play may be about figuring out why these people (in two... continued
