The theater was 1/3 full. A warning? I think I would like to read this play and see if it might work as a community theater piece. I know actresses who could be more diabolical and sensuous. This cast was phoning it in, marking the...More

Don't go expecting all singing and dancing musical, this is off-broadway. This play is almost all dialogue driven. A clever who-done-it. Very good performances from actors who have honed there craft over many years and have excellent chemistry on stage. It's not perfect though. Slightly...More
