Has anyone seen this show? I just read Isherwood's review, and it certainly sounds interesting, but I was wondering if anyone else who's actually seen it has any input.

I've seen it. Some of the plays are better than others, which is pretty much a given in a show like this, but overall, it was a very enjoyable night. The actors are great, Harriet Harris and Richard Thomas in particular (though I think they also have the best material to work with). One play has been cut since the first preview, which I think was for the better (no offense to that playwright - it just didn't fit the tone of the rest). If you're curious, I'd see it. I think Isherwood's review was pretty dead-on, and I almost never agree with him.

Which play was cut?
Marie: Don't be in such a hurry about that pretty little chippy in Frisco. Tony: Eh, she's a no chip!

As of yesterday afternoon, "This Marriage was Saved" by Joe Keenan (the Ted Haggard parody).

Thanks. That was one of the weaker pieces so not surprised or sorry to see it go.
