My overall impression

A clever play about modern dating, and the difficulties that can arise in communication in an age of smart phones and texting. A timely comedy, taking advantage of some ripe scenarios for misinterpretation when boy meets girl, girl meets boy, and each attempts to maneuver – by way of texting – the minefield of contemporary dating. Well written. Witty. Great use of a projection screen as backdrop displaying the texting material. The cast was likable, exhibited good energy, and interacted well with one another, but displayed a tendency to rush through their lines, somewhat tempering the comic effect of the material. Perhaps this could be chalked up to opening day jitters. A play worth checking out!
