Saw this when it first opened with the original cast. It's a fun show, nothing heavy but it was the cast that made it memorable. The "coat check" stole the show. If your looking for a couple of hours of laughs and no heavy drama...More

Saw this right after it opened. Was very disappointed with the acting, very much like a poor High School play rather than seasoned actors. Would not recommend, left both my wife and I flat.

Enjoyed the play very much. The plot was very interesting and intriguing, I was really often bursting into laughter. All actors were very good but Nathan Lane was out-stan-ding!

Excellent Play! Unfortunately we were there a night that Matthew Broderick was not performing, but his "stand in" was right on! Nathan Lane is hysterical and Stockard Channing was amazing! Enjoyable evening on Broadway!

Name recognition was the only reason this play had 'legs'. And the "names" rested on their laurels and did not even try to act. Worst play I have ever attended. Standing ovation - HA!!! Thank your lucky stars it closes June 7 - none too...More

We had a really nice evening. This play was funny and kept us entertained throughout. I particularly enjoyed Nathan Lane as well as the young man who played Gus - Gus was really good!

This all-star cast had us in stitches the length of the play. T.R Knight was brilliant as was Nathan Lane. There was a massive thunderstorm during the show we saw, and the cast used it to their advantage (Nathan Lane especially). This is a "play"...More
