I liked it, though I thought it wore a little thin after a while: "There is, admittedly, an antique charm to the production. The costumes by Catherine Zuber (loud suits, large hats) are gorgeous and the diorama-like scenic design by Michael Yeargan presents a New York that is a succession of two-dimensional backgrounds. It is the kind of show that appeals to those who did not grow up in the ‘thirties—or the ‘forties, ‘fifties, ‘sixties, or ‘seventies, for that matter—but who nonetheless feel an odd nostalgia for that decade, perhaps through exposure to the classic Hollywood movies that Odets held in such contempt. Ultimately, however, charm alone cannot sustain this nearly three-hour play, and its one note gradually begins to sound like nothing at all."
