Longacre Theater, April 4 and 6.

I don’t find it disturbing in any way. But then again, I’m a sadist.

John McCullough

Hilary Prentice
The woman who played Honey was fantastic. She wasn’t a ham—remember, they’ve been drinking for hours. I’ve maybe experienced that once or twice.

Annetta Marion
I can’t believe they do that every day—how can someone do that every day? Shockingly, I don’t know anyone with a marriage like that. Thank God, actually.

Andy Chester
