GREAT PERFORMANCES

The story got better and better as the play went on. I felt like I was in their loft with them, as one of their roommates! Keri projected very well, and Adam live is even greater than life than on a screen. I actually thought they had great chemistry, and I was laughing and crying through out. I would actually like to see this again! It's so worth watching!

HUNKA HUNKA BURNIN’ LOVE ADAM DRIVER!

Driver and the actor who plays Larry the gay roommate absolutely are the show - terrific timing, hilarious physical gags and intellectual wit. Yes, even though Driver plays a blue-color “Mr. Wrong” to Keri Russell’s Anna wondering why she can’t see herself marrying the smug rich screenwriter she wants so badly to be Mr. Right. Meanwhile, she is not great in this, but to be fair, I just got done with two months of weekends binging all 6 seasons of The Americans, where she was riveting playing dozens of characters as a Russian spy. She is disappointing in this. Driver is the show - as potent as Cranston is in Network.

SEE IT

The play is good; all of the actors were very good--Driver is terrific; and the set is great. Well worth seeing.

ENJOYABLE - NEEDS WORK

I enjoyed the play and am glad I went. Unfortunately, Kerri Russel was completely unconvincing as a dancer, grief-stricken friend, and hot lover. Her performance was lifeless and flat. Try as they might, the other performances could not carry her, though their effort was worth the price of admission. Unlike some reviewers, sound was fine , mid-orchestra towards the back. Lovely theater.

BURN THIS!

Cannot say enough good things: contrary to nay-sayers, the storyline was brilliant, the characters were realistic, and I never laughed so hard at some great lines & dialogue!! (Spoilers!) Keri Russell as Anna, grieving a sudden loss of her dance partner/roommate Robbie, conflicted re: her longtime relationship w/Burton, constant concern for roommate Larry & in a rut re: her dance career, played the role perfectly, finding an inner growth & determination, once the unpredictable Pale (Adam Driver), Robbie's brother, thrusts himself into her life (in more ways than one!). Larry (Brandon Uranowitz) adds charming & clever humor, and distant, static Burton (David Furr) finally finishes a screenplay without Anna's input... symbolic ending to their relationship, And while Anna and Pale DO NOT WANT their attraction to each other, Larry played cupid to bring them together... to let them decide for themselves. Can be uncomfortable at times but its GRIPPING! DAZZLING! LOVED IT!! DO NOT MISS!

ADAM FOREVER

Adam Driver in Speedo-like briefs and a skimpy kimono is to-die-for. However with all that raw attractiveness and volcanic energy, one is left to wonder what on earth draws him to Keri Russel whose only concern on stage seems to be how great her hair looks (it does) and where to best position her legs to max effect. There is no spontaneity in her speech or fluidity in her movements, despite her character being a dancer. The sparks, gaiety and laughs of the play, of which there is plenty, all come from the male actors.

NOPE

As another review pointed out - there was no plot - and I almost fell asleep at one point. I know this is a remake of a play that has been done numerous times so not sure if it's just not my cup of tea. However Adam Driver was great while Kerri Russel was very one note. If it wasn't for Adam Driver I would have give it 1 star. I will say that there was a lot of laugher in the theater, but I did not find most of the humor funny.
