Billed as “everything you ever thought about relationships, but were too afraid to say,” this is a slick, smart, sexy, very New York flavoured musical, played as a series of set piece vignettes showing couples at various stages of relationships from dating through old age. The first act is amusing and fast-paced, tending to draw fun from stereotyping along the ‘Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus’ vein. The lyrics are snappy and well-honed and the material covered unashamedly lightweight.
