So good, I saw it twice last weekend! And was immensely entertained both times. The cast is marvelous. Amazing individual acting performances by each member of the ensemble. And the writing is fantastic - visceral, thought provoking, emotional, dramatic and funny. I mean really funny. I guarantee you will spontaneously laugh out loud on numerous occasions during the play just as the audience did during both performances I attended. Really can't say enough good things about this play. Frankly, it has it all. Do yourself a favor and go!

Strong performances by all 4 actors. Jon Bernthal excellent as a New Joy-zey type mook. Nice comedic moments that had strong laughter from all in the audience - unusual for this play written as a drama. The laughter wouldn't have happened...continued
