Editorial Reviews

In one of Neil Simon's most intimate and personal works, the superb David Dukes and Sharon Gless (Cagney and Lacey) find subtlety, sadness, and bright humor in the roles of a recent widower and a recent divorcée who strike up a fresh and easy relationship despite first being introduced to each other over an awkward phone call. The vocal chemistry between Dukes and Gless is especially good when their characters spar about how to deal with the memories of the first chapters of their lives. Gates McFadden (Star Trek: Next Generation) and Grant Shaud (Murphy Brown) add fine comic touches as the couple's nosy brother and best friend who show a little too much eagerness in getting this touching and thoughtful romance off the ground.

Publisher's Summary

Comedy and pathos mingle brilliantly in Neil Simon's portrait of a widowed New York novelist who fears he may never love again and has no interest in dating. Neither does smart, attractive Jennie Malone, who has just returned from getting a Mexican divorce. A grudging five-minute meeting between them blossoms into a passionate, witty romance - until they decide to marry. Performed by a full cast starring David Dukes, Sharon Gless, Gates McFadden, and Grant Shaud.
