I was a but surprised at how the play started (sex scene with actors completely naked - although they were covered by sheets). However, I really loved the play. I thought the two actors were really good and extremely brave.

It seemed to me that the couple was either arguing or having sex. I couldn't relate to the characters and listening to them argue just gave me a headache. We left at the intermission.

I did not like it starting off with a couple doing a full blown sex scene. It was rauchy, not classy at all. So at intermission I left.

More Information



The setting is a walk-up apartment on Manhattan’s West Side where, as the curtain rises, Frankie (a waitress) and Johnny (a short-order cook who works in the same restaurant) are discovered in bed. It is their first encounter, after having met several weeks ago on the job, and Frankie is hopeful that Johnny will now put on his clothes and depart, so she can return to her usual routine of watching TV and eating ice cream. But Johnny, a compulsive talker (and romantic), has other ideas. He is convinced that he loves Frankie, a notion that she, at first, considers to be ridiculous. She has had more disappointments than delights in life, and he is the veteran of one broken marriage already. And neither of them is in the bloom of youth.
