    What the critics had to say.....

It seldom is.� ELYSA GARDNER of USA TODAY says �Fresh, funny and newly poignant.� FRANK SCHECK of THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER says "Proves to have lost whatever comic spark it possessed" ROMA TORRE of NY1 says "A near perfect production." MICHAEL KUCHWARA of Associated Press says "There are pleasures to be found"
