What I liked

I enjoyed the dialog. I also enjoyed the acting.

What I didn't like

I could see what motivated the characters most of the time – but it’s pretty complicated and making a few things clearer would help. For instance, I think the reason Madison and her husband are so pissed is because they are used to being the super smart ones that use everyone and they ended up getting used by the artist to launcher her career. Their reaction was really big and violent and ugly it would have helped to understand the game they were playing a bit more explicitly. I kinda understood it but it seemed a bit abrupt.

My overall impression

I didn’t expect to like this play as much as I did. It’s a dark love triangle. No one is really innocent and in the end everyone gets what that want and (maybe) what they deserve (still thinking about that). But it’s also very funny with lots of witty – rapid fire dialog and very interesting characters. I really enjoyed it! Plus, I might have a little crush on Madison.
