Boeing Boeing Review

Has anyone seen Communicating Doors in both London and New York and saw how different, yet similar they were? Better yet, has anyone seen a REALLY awesome play in London, but the New York version was not as good? Well...this show is like that. Kinda. Maybe. The first twenty minutes are slow, but the two males are really strong in their roles. The women start out as stereotypical, shallow versions of women, and by the end...well...they still are, but the acting is MUCH better. I'm not sure if this is coming across well at all...Anyway...the concept is interesting and entertaining, albeit thematic and somewhat predicable. It's funny like Is He Dead? although without the wit of Clemens. The curtain call is something from Mamma Mia! I think the director figured that if it worked there, it would work here. There is a problem though, that is brief, yet it has to be addressed. What is shown is NOT Polygamy OR Polyamory. It is merely a man whom has multiple relationships. Polygamy is having many wives that live and know about each other, its opposite being Bigatry. Polyamory is having many lovers and they all know about each other, its opposite being Cheating. Anyway, it's worth seeing. But if not, buy a ticket anyway and the newly renovated Longacre Theatre. It's a beautiful and awe-inspiring treat!

3 1/2 out of 5.
