I thought this was a well-done performance and enjoyed my Goldstar seats. The actors did a a good job, but felt that in some ways it was less of a comedy than I expected and more of an "education" session with bits of humor thrown in. As a person who "might" be ADD married to a person with ADD and having a son who is pretty spot on for ADD, there were parts that definitely rang true. Perhaps too true.
Quotes & Highlights
“A passionate emotional journey…moves with impressive comic swiftness.” —Los Angeles Times

Jesse’s got problems. Mom needs to solve them. At school, at home, this plugged-in kid is easily distracted and readily riled—just like his anxious parents, the neurotic neighbors, the clue-challenged doctors, the whole revved-up, wacked-out webcast of modern life. Could it be Attention Deficit Disorder? And what if it is?
Honest, insightful, and hilariously offbeat, this LA/Ashland hit by the author of _Living Out _is a dramedy for our times, texting for answers in a world too frazzled to text back.
