It helps...continued

Had a great time. Tickets were great and the play was also great.
I thought I would be hearing only old jokes but was surprise at the
many I have not hear.

The title for the play should have been "Old Jews Telling Dirty Jokes." The jokes were pretty funny and the cast did a pretty good job of telling the jokes.

This show exceeded our expectations. From the moment it started until the end, we laughed. It brought back the "Yiddish experience" of the past. How wonderful these memories have been preserved. The players did a really good job of playing...continued

We had awesome second row seats although there is not a bad seat in the house. The cast was terrific, a great blend of old and not-so-old jews who energetically moved the minimal scenery around. The lack of scenery allowed us to focus on the...continued

We had wonderful seats and the ticketing experience was smooth as could be. As for the show, not so much. It was pleasant, but not uproarious. The performers were all very good, but I guess I play golf with too many funny 'Old Jews' to find this...continued

My husband and I took my elderly mother; we expected it to be slapstick. It wasn't. It was a laugh-out-loud, well-acted event and all three of us thoroughly enjoyed it. It spans generations.

I was looking forward to a lot of laughter. I had some laughter. The talent was terrific. It's just that the script was ... eh. More use of the "F" word than I thought there'd be, and very filthy jokes! I'm not a prude. I just like that stuff for...continued

Very entertaining. Short, but couldn't be longer as it starts to lose steam once you've gone through jokes. Many I knew--old and new, but still entertaining, and I'm not even Jewish. The songs in Yiddish are hysterical.

Everything was fine except the show itself. I found it unfunny but other people were laughing uproariously, so maybe it is just me.

Loved going for a matinee and surprised how full the house was. It was a nice 90 minutes or so and we had some good laughs. I honestly expected to laugh more but found some of the jokes were clunkers. That said, some was brilliant like the...continued

Fun show, I knew. 99% of the jokes and loved them all again. The real point of jokes is in the shared experience.
Park across the street in the garage for $10.
Great

A very funny show, my companion and I both enjoyed it greatly. I only wish I remembered more of the jokes, so I could cheer myself up from time to time. We had great tickets, second row center; Goldstar came through, again.

Too many young actors; too many sex jokes, which is a sign of intellectual weakness and most importantly it had a generic feel -- nothing like what real Catskill comedians would have done. This was driven home by the very best part of the show --...continued
