We got tickets just to see James Gandolfini because we were addicted to The Sopranos. Although, this was type casting, we enjoyed him, well enough and the whole cast did a good job. The weakness is in the play. Its very hard to sit in the same living room set and listen to dialog for a long time, unless the writing is brilliant, which this isnt. So, we got restless. We would say that this is typically good theater, but nothing to go into credit card debt, over. For us, without Gandolfini, we would not have bothered to see this show.......and we see a lot of theater each month.

Saw this with the original cast. They were superb, particularly Marcia Gay Hayden and Hope Davis. I laughed throughout and found it a great night of theatre.
This was such fun! A great cast, and such a well-written play. Highly recommended.
Great story about the "real feelings" of married couples pretending to be civil. Gandilfini showed his meek side but exploded into Tony Soprano as the play developed. Marcia Gay Harden should deserves a standing ovation. I would see this play again in a heartbeat.
This show was great in that it showed the human side of all of us. Good intentions dont always guarantee good results! The actors were dynamic, and the one liners are great too.
