Orchestra - Preferred (A-Q Side)
How was your experience?
Both DeVito and Hirsch know how to get laughs, but this production utterly misses the real heart of the piece. I felt nothing about their friendship nor the terror and anxiety of losing one's vitality as one ages. It's in the play - actually a very GOOD play - but this production pays little heed to that aspect. Also, the vaudeville comedy sketch was sloppy and uneven - not the precision comedy of a team that had done this sketch thousands of times. All in all, disappointing.
