Went on my birthday with two of our kids and had a great time.
The performers were right on spot and talented.
We laughed out loud many times.
Few new jokes....really as if it was old Jews telling jokes....but very quick paced and fun.
It helps...

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 Royal George theater's first row balcony seat is impossible to see the stage from unless you sit forward, which would be fine except then the people behind us couldn't see. We saw half the show, the top half. What we saw was good.

First, we had great seats. Thanks to having a membership with Red Velvet. They were first row. That was a very nice surprise. The show itself was hysterically funny and I enjoyed it so much. Reminded me of my own Bubbe and Zadie. My friend...continued

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

It was funny. I had a few laughs. However, some jokes are older than I am. Some are too inappropriate for the general public, so to speak. Over all, it was a good experience.

It was OK, it was nice to see they invited a House Rep. and Senator... The jokes were funny but the show lacked structure.

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...

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.
