Arrive early... Dress seems to be as fancy or casual as you want to make it (temp is not an issue)... Although all seats are very good -- those in the middle are of course the best....

I enjoyed the play and laughed loudly at several lines. The actors were all excellent, and I was amazed at the fight scene with pillows and objects flying.

This play was ok. The acting was really good and the sets were well done. I liked the concept of the play story, but I found it dragged a little, too much dialog and wasn't as funny as I'd hoped. There were two intermissions.

Quotes & Highlights

“Gorgeous, dazzling, fantastically funny.” —New York Times
“A gleaming and gleeful comedy.” —_New York Post _
“A brilliant comedy. A very funny play.” —_Newsweek _


One of the most flippant plays ever written. Elyot and Amanda, once married and now honeymooning with new spouses at the same hotel, meet by chance, reignite the old spark and impulsively elope. After days of being reunited, they again find their fiery romance alternating between passions of love and anger. Their aggrieved spouses appear and a roundelay of affiliations ensues as the women first stick together, then apart, and new partnerships are formed.
