I saw this on the first night of previews and thought it was riveting. Adam Driver enters and sucks up all the air in the theater. He is fantastic and you cannot takes your eyes off him. I thought it was excellent. I see tons of shows in NYC and this is one of my favorite plays.

5.0 star rating Chels from New York, New York


It starts slow but once Adam Driver walks on stage he is captivating. You cannot take your eyes off of him. Besides the unbelievable sex appeal he is emotional and was able to gain compassion from the audience. I cried and laughed thtrouhout the entire play. I went for Keri Russell (huge Felicity fan) and she was not disappointing! She held her own and her grief came through ten fold. She was great. The roommate also was a great surprise! Comedic timing was perfect along with softer moments. But ADAM DRIVER was beyond the best I’ve ever seen!!!! Well worth the money. I would see again and again and again...I’m Still daydreaming he will marry me!

Adam driver had a touch of Brando in his emotional portrayal of a grieving older brother.keri Russell held her own. The two other male leads were good.

4.0 star rating Barbra from New York, New York


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

4.0 star rating Alice from New York, New York


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.

We were quite entertained by this - although Russel is not the best of it.. Does anyone remember the Titel of the last song that was playing??

4.0 star rating KP from New York, New York


This play is in its third week of previews now, and I think they've worked out many of the kinks. All four actors do good work: Keri Russell's performance feels lived in and natural much of the time, though I felt like she was still working out how to play some moments. Adam Driver commands the stage, and while he consistently entertains, his character was a bit of an enigma -- not sure if that's his fault or the playwright's. Brandon Uranowitz does a great job with a role that borders on caricature. David Furr is solid and dependable. I was surprised by how genuinely funny the play was. The 2½ hour running time flew by.
