Funny but forgettable fluff. Lavin is the best (maybe only) reason to see this play. She has some hilarious one liners. But what is it all for? The second act was actually stronger than the first, but it was in such stark contrast to the tone and style of the first act that it didn't even feel like it was from the same play. Felt like the playwright didn't know what play she wanted to write. The most upsetting thing is that this play somehow managed to transfer to broadway while much better plays like Sons of the Prophet and 4000 Miles have not. Too bad.
