Apparently, there are a lot of fans of Mary-Louise Parker, the show’s star. I’m not one of them, because I don’t watch Weeds, but this play – while feeling slow – feels substantive enough in the setup that you at least want to see it resolve. It’s the characters that are supposed to drive it, I think, but it’s the premise that I watched. I like period pieces when they’re artful, high concept, stylized – this is none of that. It feels like writing a letter in a parlor, with a lot of melodrama, but I wasn’t unhappy, just sleepy. My seat in the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre was good, though, and I was basically happy.
