Like a TV sitcom for a Jewish Audience, Jun 22, 2013
reviewer: Janet from Tampa, FL
Had great expectations. Perhaps if I were Jewish I might have thoroughly enjoyed it. But I am not so many of the jokes and dialogue were lost on me. Do not see why Judith Light won best actress, so overacted she was more like a caricature. Most of the characters were very one-dimensional and you could not empathize with them. The only saving grace was the actress who played Julie. Her acting was genuine and memorable. Again if you are Jewish, you will certainly enjoy this. Otherwise, not so much.

Not-to-be-missed, Apr 15, 2013
reviewer: Ruth Goldfarb from New York, New York
This was a gem of a play with marvelous character development, rich dialogue, wonderful acting and a very clever stage-set. It was totally engaging from the first moment and was beautifully graced with humor even as difficult issues were central. I would highly recommend this play to anyone who's been part of a family!

A Little West Side Dysfunction is a Wonderful Thing!, Apr 15, 2013
reviewer: Anonymous from Teaneck NJ
Laughter, tears, comedy, tragedy - this wonderful play had it all, and my friend and I enjoyed every minute of it. We were enthralled as the layers of lives were peeled back and the mysteries of relationships and family were revealed. You don't have to be Jewish (except for a liberal sprinking of Yiddish terms) or a New Yorker to recognize and relate to themes that are common to all. I want the script so that I can read the wonderful lines that I don't remember. Kudos to Richard Greenberg, and to a five-star cast. I don't give standing ovations lightly - this play and cast deserve one!

What was the plot?, Apr 09, 2013
reviewer: Anonymous from New York, New York
I was very disappointed. The script and staging was fragmented making it hard to follow. There was a sense that the writer through in every element that could possibly happen into the mix....a ruby necklace, a son dying of AIDS, a loss of money, an affair, blackmail, a retarded child, an unwanted pregnancy. Do not waste your evening.

Beautiful, Excellent, Go See It, Apr 01, 2013
reviewer: Pamela from New York, New York
My spouse and I went to see The Assembled Parties on a Friday night and were blown away by the writing, the performances, and the set design. It was so great that we did something we almost never do – we went back and saw it again on Sunday night. Judith Light inhabits the role fully, as she always does, and it is a pleasure to watch her perform. The way her eyes tear up or twinkle is a pure marvel. She delivers her lines with such perfection that it is easy to feel you are overhearing a private conversation instead of memorized dialog. Jessica Hecht gives a rich, complex performance, complete with perfectly timed humor, fleeting but meaningful glances at the audience, and moments of such depth and emotion that I don’t know how to describe them. (Go see for yourself) She courts everyone on stage and every member of the audience, and we are all in the palm of her hand. I am a new fan of her work, as of Friday, March 29th. This one is well worth the time & the money. Do not miss it.
