This show is a comedy that has something I’d never seen before – absolutely no action. It’s purely dialogue driven, with the only movement being from the door to the sitting area, to the bar and back. What it lacks in action it makes up for in fabulous dialogue. And with the playwright also being an author of Blazing Saddles, how could it not be?
Synopsis (from Concord Theatricals):
This hilarious Broadway comedy surrounds a married couple who are art dealers. Their domestic tranquility is shattered upon the arrival of the wife’s goody-goody nerd of a sister, her uptight CPA husband, and her archetypal Jewish mother. They are there to try to save their college-student daughter from the horrors of living only for sex. The comic sparks really begin to fly when the mother hits it off with the elderly minimalist artist who is the art dealers’ best client!
