Interesting characters and good acting. The play just seemed too long, especially the first act. If the playwright tightens up the play I think he will greatly improve it. But I certainly recommend it.

I believe this play was promoted as being a comedy....if you expect side splitting laughter then you will be disappointed. I would characterize it as being amusing. It was certainly heartfelt, as it examined a dysfunctional family with an...continued

We just loved this show. The dialogue was fantastic (you could hear a pin drop in the theater, you could feel how engaged the audience was!) The acting was fabulous. Wonderful afternoon at the theater.

Liked this show quite a bit. It was very funny, and also had some great dramatic acting.

This theater is fantastic! They do specialized cocktails for each show and the BlackBerry… Something… For this one was really really good!

Witty, insightful script well staged and directed by the playwright. The characters give the actors real substance to perform and they rise to the challenge beautifully. Unfortunate that I saw the last performance in this run as I would have...continued

It had been quite awhile since I last attended a play at the New Conservatory Theater. The space has been remodeled and was very sharp and comfortable.

Not sure if I misinterpreted the write up, but I thought this play was a comedy. It was actually more sad and angry. The mom had most of the one-liners, but the actress spoke so fast they were often thrown away.

There were a lot of fade to...continued

It was not funny, one song was sang (multiple times), and the scenes where there were arguments was really awkward.
