STILLER SIZZLES, FALCO FASCINATES & LEIGH LETS LOOSE
My first Broadway experience, and it was so perfect and amazing! Seeing actors work live is an unbelievable experience. Stiller uses his vast emotional range (down-trodden, excited, awkward, comedic, dramatic) in unexpected ways. At times, JJL has more lines than BS. Her high-maintenance portrayal of Bunnie is dead on. Yet, the irony is although Bananas is psycho, she is the sanest one of this wacky bunch. Ronnie is believable. You can't help but feel sorry for him. With such a small cast, such a beautiful theater, excellent story, outstanding actors, great props, sounds, and costumes, THBL exceeded every expectation. Too bad it closed early! Everyone should see this play. The twist on the end is unexpected, and makes you think...So glad I was fortunate enough to see this. Ben Stiller never disappoints. I left the theater thrilled. What a way to spend a Sat. afternoon in NYC! Thank you to the cast, crew, and staff at the Walter Kerr Theater. I hope BS does more Broadway shows.

BIZARRE YET BEAUTIFUL
The yearn to feel by Edie Falco was felt by all...at one point with Ben Stiller the two silenced the breath of each of us in the audience...an unusual story line that will move you! Small theatre, all seats are doable, no children, need to hear the script..TICKETS offers half price for a second night show in the big city!

GO SEE SOMETHING ELSE!!!
Unfortunately, I went to see this tonight and I was sorely disappointed. The script itself made little sense at times, the acting was mostly poor (even by the stars) and the basic understanding of schizophrenia was way off point! I know this was written in the 60's and things were different then, however this should be left there. It's a shame because this could be much better, it won't ever be great but it should be better!
