Ate after the show at one of the many Japanese restaurants on Sawtelle, just across the 405 freeway.

This sounded like a lot of fun from the description, but in reality it showcased some veteran comedic talent in a very weak play that came off as an overly long and not terribly well written TV sitcom episode.

The cast was wonderful, they just didn't have wonderful material to work with. The ending was also flat.

The show was just okay. I liked it better than the show "The Irish Curse" that is now playing at the Odyssey Theater.
