Stellar performances, brilliant writing and flawless pacing make this play feel like it is only 40 minutes long while it is, in fact, over three hours long. A totally implausible story that would otherwise seem heavy-handed here takes you along for the ride and you never question it. Bravo to audiences for not requiring television or film stars in order to buy tickets to this moving and funny play.

If you love sitcoms and wish plays were more like sitcoms but with a lot of strong language, then see this play. It is certainly fun, and would feel a little more like classic Mamet if they hadnt cast Nathan Lane, who gives this production a slapstick feel. Youll laugh a lot, but probably wont have a lot to discuss over drinks after the show.
