This play depicts real life, with real life issues. Because of that, some will find it tough to take. I was mesmerized for the entire play. There are funny, sad and emotional elements....just like most of our own lives.

Pointless and mind numbing. I can't understand how this thing won any awards. I would not recommend it to anybody. The seats were fine--just not much leg room but I'm used to that. I would not take my worst enemy to this show. We always eat at LaBuca for dinner. That was the only highlight of the evening.

If there was an intermission half the crowd would have walked out. It's getting tiresome that an artistic director and I use the term lightly , continues to hire the same actors over and over again. It's hard to sit through this play as Woods and Martello over act as they do in most of the plays Bernard casts them in. Ibrahim Miari was a bright light in a dismal show yet somehow it didn't seem as if he knew that or had the acting ability to know it and capitalize even more. Keizer and Eisenhower were fine as the sisters but neither stood at at moments when they could have How this play won a Tony is mind boggling. It starts and ends and you think why did I sit through this. Bernard needs to hire actual directors instead of using this beautiful theater as his toy. Great place to see a show but if this is what they put out go to New York it will be worth the time and money
