This was the highlight of my trip to NYC. Emma Stone was wonderful and Alan Cummings stole the show. If you can, try and get student tickets for $30, the seats were still great and you can't beat such fantastic talent. The set was intimate...More

Alan Cummings is terrific. Studio 54 the perfect venue. Did not like the tight seating in upper level or $16 price for a glass of wine, but otherwise the atmosphere was fine. Acting excellent.

Allen Cummings was great and that's about it. Three of us went, none of us enjoyed it. Not at all what we expected- it was all we could do to not leave at intermission. When the show was finally over, there actually is a story...More

We had great seats, medium priced. Cummings was brilliantly fabulous! I was in total awe of him. He was constantly on - which is difficult when one is on stage as much as he was (even when in the background). His timing, the costuming, his...More
