    An enjoyable and a real funny play at the beginning that has a very interesting mystery to it Why are 3 men and 3 women invented to a dinner party? But as the play gets closer to the end and the mystery is revealed the mood of the play gets a little serious and feels like Neal Simon didn't really know how he wanted to end the story lines between these 6 peopleWhat made me want to read this play was I saw some pictures of John Ritter and Henry Winkler acting together in a production of this in 2001 Since there isn't any video footage of the play reading the play was the next best thing to do I could picture both of them in the characters they played Claude for Ritter and Albert for Winkler At first I liked both characters but as I got closer to the end I started to like Albert's character a bit than I did Claude

    Six people are invited to a dinner party Upon arrival they discover that they are actually three sets of divorcees and the party was orchestrated intentionally to get them to confront the reasons why each of their marriages failedI laughed out loud several times reading this script it's really delightful

  3. Diana Diana says:

    I usually enjoy Neil Simon's works but this one was just not for me uite honestly I got bored very uickly There were a few lines that made me smile but nothing that really stood out as funny or even remotely fun The characters were lacking character and the scriptugh I am not a fan of this Neil Simon play

  4. Jackie Jackie says:

    I am a bit biased because I performed in this play If I was going to be objective I probably would have given this only two stars Neil Simon was the writer for the Odd Couple but here the jokes fall flat and his attempt at relationships drama is unconvincing

  5. Nicolas Nicolas says:

    I was kinda getting into the zingers and the mystery behind the dinner but it totally lost me as it a got all serious and moody at the end PassTune in here for a discussion on some favorite Neil Simon plays

  6. Barbara Barbara says:

    Ugly existential bitter and pointless conversations among ex spouses invited to an anonymous dinner party at a fancy restaurant All talk no real resolution and relationships unlike any in real life Not for us

    I saw this on Broadway and enjoyed it immensely Now as I read through it considering it for production with a local community theatre group I realize that I like this than most of Simon's latest worksI have felt recently that Neil Simon has either tried too hard to make us laugh Laughter on the 23rd Floor or been trying to be too poignant the biographical 'Brighton Beach' series for me to really enjoy his recent works Where is the writer who penned The Odd Couple or The Sunshine Boys or even Barefoot in the Park? The answer is he is hereBefore I began to read this I wondered if perhaps what I had enjoyed about the Broadway performance was seeing John Ritter and Len Cariou and Henry Winkler sharing the stage But no what makes this play work is the writingThe witiness which covers a characters pain classic Simon is here And yet the pain isn't too deeply imbedded otherwise we'd have trouble really laughing which has been my problem with the Brighton Beach playsIf you've liked the earlier Neil Simon works you will probably like this one too Worth reading Worth seeing Worth producing

    As a nod to my drama major days at UCI I have a bunch of plays I'm trying to get through Though they're short I really have to concentrate while reading so can't do them very often these days This was a good Neil Simon play though I do think the ending was a bit of a reach But it is a play and Neil Simon likes you to feel good at the end

  9. Caroline Stewart Caroline Stewart says:

    I don't enjoy pain I just like the pursuit of it When I saw this play on Broadway a decade ago I found it incredibly sharp and sophisticated In the reading of it now I still found it sharp and sophisticated but I also found it to be a bit unrealistic It's also uite funny that my memory of it wasn't as a comedy

    Not Simon's best work Interesting but didn't feel like the characters were developed enough and lacking Simon's strong wit and clever humor Not terrible but there are better Simon plays out there for sure
