Storyline

The story involves the Isaacs, a group of theater actors inhabiting a country home in Westchester County, New York. Present are patriarch George "Grisha" Isaacs (Jack Heller), his wife Vivien Cooper Isaacs (Diane Salinger), Vivien's brother Larry Cooper (David Proval), and family house guest Sally Brooks (Harriet Schock). As the tale opens, Grisha and Vivien's daughter, Pandora (Tanna Frederick) arrives from Manhattan on the heels of a painful and messy breakup. Her ex-boyfriend was an emotionally constipated jerk who couldn't deal with her vulnerabilities. Though Pandora adores her family, their chosen profession, and the emotionally-liberated lifestyle that it engenders, she also grapples with a tense, troubled relationship with older sister Betsy (Julie Davis); an icy, controlled businesswoman type who has distanced herself from this family of artists. Betsy turns up for a visit not long after Panda arrives, this time with her fiancé, Jimmy (Judd Nelson) in tow. In the days that ... Written by Larry

when the reviews on the marquee are mediocre, that's a warning
9 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Not sure whether the set was supposed to be artificial, and the acting overblown, but after an hour I did not care and left the theater. Streams of tears without reason, "dirt" makeup that had clearly been artificially applied, a dramatic attempted kiss that the audience could see five minutes before, actors appearing on stage in a mechanically timed sequence. Maybe it was all deeply ironic, and we were supposed to laugh at these actors playing actors in a family filled with melodrama and artifice, but the audience at this Manhattan theater that was a mere five minutes from Broadway were silent, and some were somnolent. the opening song was good, but after that, it was meaningless and pointless.
