What I liked

Jared Boghosian’s smart direction uses the less is more approach, helping to highlight both the text of the piece and capitalizes on the great performances of his talented actors (Maddison Bullock, Joel Flynn, and Michael Filippone)

What I didn't like

Alan Ball’s material packs a lot in a compact 45 minutes (which is probably the point)

My overall impression

A smart and energetic take on Alan Ball’s polemic about the dynamics of relationships, gender roles, and the battle of the sexes.
It’s a fast paced and breezy production that reminds its audience why live theater is still a vital showcase where thought provoking ideas (illuminated by fantastic acting and solid direction) can flourish.
