"The Assembled Parties" is written by Richard Greenberg who adapted the stinker "Breakfast at Tiffany's." And while this play suffers the same problem of BAT of too little conflict and not much of interest happening to sustain itself, TAP, however, has glimpses of characters sprinkled with funny lines, but not enough for an enjoyable evening of theater for someone like myself who attends weekly. If you don't get out of the house much or get starstruck seeing actors you've seen on TV, you might just like this. But it draaaaaaags. The setting is a 14-room apartment on Central Park West during Christmas 1980 and act two is Christmas 2000. And while Judith Light is always wonderful and some of the ensemble are talented, most of the acting felt forced. Was it intentional? I don't know. What was the playwright trying to say? I don't know. I left saying "so what?" The star of the show is the gorgeous revolving set designed by Santo Loquasto know for his production design on a couple dozen Woody Allen movies.
