Cute show! It had its funny moments and at times seemed to drag along.

Well acted, lively but not good material. this is more suitable to an evening of old folks in the Catskills. Old jokes, stereotypes and caricatures. The reason we didn't leave is that there was no intermission and we were sitting with people on...continued

The show was overall good. i laughed a lot and loved seeing come to life certain of the sketches that I've listened to for years. That said, I like the original wording of some of the jokes that they tried to update. For example, in the jury...continued

Should be banned as hate speech. I am a scholar of Nazi propaganda films and they were similar although more deft. That this is in a revival is chilling.

Even the talented cast couldn't ressurect the tired old material that comprise this revue. It was a huge disappointment, considering the stellar actors behind it. The show was here for a very short run, but given the content, it probably would...continued

A charming show of old time Jewish comedy routines. Well acted, fun music.

Comical play based on Jewish sterotypical characters. The actors are Jewish themselves and they are poking fun at their own culture so don't come if you are expecting everyone to be "politically correct".

Great seats via Goldstar. The show was a major disappointment. The cast was excellent, but they needed better material. Slow in parts and not enough comedic moments made it a dull experience. If it had an intermission, we would have left.

Show fell far short of my fond memories of the album. It seemed they stretched out the original routines so that it now seemed they took forever to get to their punch lines. The timing of their delivery was off. And the show inexplicably left out...continued

This show is offensive, repeating and wallowing in every stereotype and caricature ever used by the Jewish people. The dialects are stereotypical as well; the Jewish people haven't sounded like that in decades since the earliest immigration of...continued

Very disappointed. Thought it was very dated and dumb. Expected much more with Jason Alexander's name attached to the show.

The cast worked hard, but not much from the original album to my memory was used.

Started off with some funny quips but the laughs became infrequent. It was entertaining but not the funniest. There was an unsettling moment with an audience person booing the cast then getting up and leaving. It looked like this person booed on...continued

I loved "When you're in Love, the Whole world is Jewish, which I saw in San Francisco.

The show was part borsht belt, part burlesque, part old time jokes and part like an older Broadway musical.

My husband and I really laughed a lot and...continued
