Really terrific production. It's a complicated examination of deception, betrayal, and heart, and it's very funny, too. The cast was uniformly wonderful.

With passion, profanity, and genuine vulnerability, Jackie and Veronica untangle their decades of codependence as they wrestle with the painful limitations of trust, desire, and rehabilitation.
Stephen Adly Guirgis’ rapid-fire black comedy was a smash hit on Broadway, where _The New York Times _called it a “bruising, tragicomic apache dance of love, betrayal and indecision.”
