I know it hasn't started performances yet, but does anyone know the normal running time for 'The Marriage of Bette and Boo'. I'm trying to plan to catch a train after the show. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Probably about 2 hours.

Your crystal ball is as good as the rest of ours. You'll just have to wait until the show starts previewing.

Mrs R hated it. I thought it mildly entertainment. John Glover is basically wasted.

Runs roughly 2 hours. Maybe some change, too.

It's a very shocking, provocative play, even today. Definitely not everyone's taste, but I will go as far as to say that it's Durang's best.

For the record, I haven't seen this production yet; I'm just familiar with the play itself.

And from the opinions I've heard from people who have seen this production, it's still very good at polarizing audiences.

I don't know the running time of this performance, but if it is like all other Durang plays it will be just a little too long.

It is a very difficult script to pull off, but the cast is so impressive. If THEY can't do it right, it can't be done.
PEACE.
