Two stars for the outstanding acting (otherwise it would have been one). But overall I don't understand all of the positive reviews about this play. Mamet's dialogue was stilted - no one really talks like his characters do, and the actual events...continued

Well acted and directed and of course Mamet's dialogue was great to listen to. Glad I saw it, despite the review in The Washington Post.

Fast paced dialogue. The explicit language was appropriate for the subject matter and the setting. The actors created very believable characters. The music before the show began was really irritating.
