by Contests - Broadway - Oct 17, 2016

Those who have never encountered this work in any form will have the enviable experience of meeting its achingly articulate characters and laughing for the first time at the idiosyncratic linguistic twists of songs about 'Four Jews in a Room Bitching,' the perils of psychotherapy and the familial predicament of watching 'Jewish boys who cannot play baseball play baseball'....
