This was not entertaining at all. I've seen a lot of Broadway type plays and this may be the worst of them all. Now the theater is OK; just not this play.

This play is about a family in which the father is gay and has gat affairs and daughter turns out to be a lesbian. It's terribly written, boring, and a typical 'liberal' play. The actors have their 'liberal' views at the end. It was disrespectful...More

I really enjoyed this play. The music was fantastic, the acting was terrific and the story was engaging. I wasn't bored at all because the play kept moving along at a great pace. The set design was wonderful, as well. I liked everything about it.

I had no idea what this play was about, so I read the Playbill. The plot sounded interesting; but what a let down. The theme, of a female looking back on her life and dealing with her and her overbearing Father's homosexuality just didn't hold...More
