    I found this play insufferable


  2. Laur Laur says:

    This play would definitely make sense when watched live rather than read as trying to figure out what could be heard by the other actors vs just the audience was a real uandary throughout this play But I still love McNally's writing style It feels true to life plus a little bit of heightened drama to keep the audience engaged I really feel like the joy in this play would be carving out what the actors are saying and what they are really trying to get at by speaking and to whom they are conversing with I think there could be a real sense of art and surrealism in the pausing and the continuing on something we cannot do in life but is easily accomplished in art and in this play and yet even while it may be paused for other actors it is never paused for the audience or for whoever is speaking and then looking at the passage of time both in this play and in life is a fun rabbit hole to fall into as you go along as wellReally interesting play that I'd love to either do one day or see done with great writing and interesting characters and even interesting lines from said characters when coming from this particular writer but I knocked off the 2 stars as it wasn't as easy a read as it would be a watch Trying to figure out line by line who can hear what and at what moment each actor is frozen or unfrozen while also trying to let the plot and dialogue unfold naturally made it a bit of a clunkier read But I still liked it and it still had me laughing a couple times too

    Our national treasure playwright Terrence McNally was one of the first major artists and writers to die due to the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 His struggle with lung cancer over the years meant he had little lung capacity remaining making him a prime target of the virus I directed his short one act play Noon in college and have always loved his stories This is what inspired me to read LTTA for the first time Lips Together is about two heterosexual couples spending 4th of July weekend on Fire Island at the beach house once owned by the now deceased brother of one of the women The brother willed it to his sister before he died of AIDS Although no actual gay people appear on stage their presence is felt throughout as offstage kin and neighbors The sister must decide if she will keep the beach home or sell it It's brilliant and full of fireworks Don't look for a lot of productions of this play since it reuires a working swimming pool on stage for a few pivotal scenes Reading it it helps to imagine Nathan Lane Swoosie Kurtz and Christine Baranski in the roles since they were among the brilliant NYC cast


  4. Catherine Catherine says:

    As I read this I found myself wondering what McNally found so compelling about the story or the characters or whatever that he wrote this because I really didn't see it Maybe this is one of those plays one has to see performed to see what the author was going for or maybe it is just too dated but I found it dull forced


  5. Tiffany Day Tiffany Day says:

    Not my cup of tea slow repetitive not a lot to it I've loved some of McNally's work but not this The set sounds amazing though and there'd be some fun tech challenges for smaller theaters It had some moments that pulled me in but overall this is a no


  6. Bobby Sullivan Bobby Sullivan says:

    Two couples of very damaged human beings both emotionally and physically The most likeable of the characters is Chloe who's massively irritating There's a lot going on here under the surface but the characters are so unlikeable it's hard to care


  7. Autumn Autumn says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed this script and the uestions it posed I found it challenging but it also forced me to delve into the characters and where they were coming from to make them dosay what they did I loved the effect of the inner monologues vocalized and woven into the conversations


  8. Phanesia Pharel Phanesia Pharel says:

    Masterful work Very little resolution


  9. Sara Sara says:

    I think it was good but then again I don’t know anything about plays and don’t particularly enjoy reading them


  10. Alex Alex says:

    The characters are deplorable but the play is effective
