Sort of like the Bickersons...but not all that satisfying.

Tennessee Williams did NOT write fun plays, that's for sure. Here in "Mooney's Kid Don't Cry", however, you have the usual unhappy view of life but none of the usual wonderful twists or insights into the darker or better parts of human nature. It's like PART of a play but needs a lot more time to develop--sort of like a germ of an idea for a play.

Ben Gazzara and Lee Grant are the only actors in this play. The couple live in a run-down apartment--much like the Kramden's on "The Honeymooners". But, Gazzara is more of a loser and he and Grant begin arguing. Eventually, he threatens to leave...but doesn't....the end. There really isn't much more to it and these usually excellent actors seem off their game. Gazzara (a brilliant actor) is especially bad here--and seems to overact a bit. Just not all that interesting by any standard but not terrible.
