I had a feeling this would happen...very divisive show! Theatermania, USA Today, Daily News love it. Others hate it.

Does anyone remember the last show to get such widely split reviews?

I think everyone -- critic and regular theatergoer -- agrees on one thing: They cringed in panic that Langella & Adams would follow through on their discussion in the second act. (I'm being vague for those who haven't seen it. If you saw it, you know what I'm talking about!)

Yes. But otherwise the show is good. It needs some fine tuning but it was interesting.

What kind of fine tuning Corine2? And what did you find interesting about the show. Please share your thoughts.

I haven't seen it yet, FrontRow, which is why I was curious to hear Corine2's opinion.

I thought Frank Langella was wonderful in the role.
It was a bit long and the surprise in the second act was hilarious but some of the audience were offended.
