The Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab does not have reserved seats. However, the front rows are reserved for people with mobility issues. A few late-comers were seated in front also.

The play is set up as a football game, including a pregame show. While the play doesn't start until 7:45, the doors open at 7:30, which is also when the pregame show starts. To be part of the whole experience of the play, I suggest arriving in time to walk through those doors at precisely 7:30.

I did not care for the direction. The situation and the characters were not really believable, and there was a considerable amount of "over-acting".

The play was a bit long, and totally overly-theatrical. The characters weren't believable at all. The venue is great; I go to Olney Theater a lot, and typically, while not Broadway quality, usually very enjoyable. I couldn't wait for this show...continued
