How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I have tried THREE times to write a review, but it never goes through. Suffice it to say that I really hated this play. After all of the NYC hoopla, I thought I'd take some friends to see this show. It was a colossal bore. The acting was so-so, but it is the play itself that lacks emotional weight. Throughout it all, I felt that the playwright strained for a sense of resonance that never occurred. The young man's tragedy, which took forever to come out, seemed hokey and strained as well. The grandmother seemed awkward much of the time. The young Asian "pick-up" was the only bright spot in the play, which was only ninety minutes long but seemed to go on forever.
