The first play by Steve Martin was short and sweet, but everyone talked in monologues. The 2nd was basically a short Woody Allen film. It was funny and I liked it more than the others. The 3rd Sam Shepard play was pretty bad. When I heard it...continued

Nice idea to do 3 one-act plays by authors with well-known names. The problem is they are secondary works. Woody Allen's Riverside Drive is the strongest of the three plays. Chris Ensweiler's debut as Woody Allen is a challenge not quite met...continued

Three entirely different shows, each one interesting in it's own way. I can't rank them in any 1,2,3 order. Just a nice evening at the theater.

Whew! We are fond-and-frequent attendees of live theater. But THIS was a first for us. Got to our excellent, near-the-front seats, only to discover a couple (perhaps in their 30s), whose body odor was so rank, so pungent, that we found our own...continued

This well-produced, well attended, often funny always WTF show exceeded my threshold. If you want to see something totally...continued

Steve Martin play was alright -- Woody Allen's was very funny and well-acted -- Sam Shepard's, I thought about leaving after 10 minutes and catching an earlier ferry -- I should have.
