What a joy to see an ACTUALLY witty script and not what tends to pass for wit in modern drama - Beane doesn't just turn a phrase, he spins it like a top. And the appealing cast is for the most part up to the challenge, though at just a few points the pacing flags short of the rapid fire delivery necessary for the scenes to truly sing. As the two male leads, Manocchio gives an effortlessly earnest performance in the hustler role while Linderberg makes for a refreshingly likable matinee idol without sacrificing any of the requisite narcissism and self-loathing. An uncluttered, enjoyable and BRAVE production (the controversial full frontal nudity is both fully realized and understated at the same time - bravo!), with dialogue you'll be quoting on the ride home and a deeper core than you might expect.

Good show. A witty script, filled with very real characters (seemingly Hollywood stereotypes, but stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason), brought to life effectively by the whole cast. Some clever dialogue and some touching emotional moments...continued
Due to mature content and language this show is recommended for ages 17 and over.
Run time: 2 hours and 15 minutes with a 10 minute intermission
