Frankly this play relates rather unrealistic dysfunctional friendships among 3 guys. Their relationship to each other is sad, and hardly funny. A few funny lines here and there, but overall it is an 'emperor's new clothes' play: because it was on Broadway, people feel thay have to say they thought it was funny.

Even though this play is funny, how a piece of moden art can destroy 3 friends that have been friends for 15 odd years, the story line is as dull as the plan white canvas, which Marc sums up to be 'a piece of s**t'..... I would have to agree

An enjoyable read, but a must see! The play is a wonderfully intergrated character study between 3 friends whose personal opinions differ. Each friend is fulled with complexities, depth & COLOR. Something from each of these character's can hit a tender spot within each of us. That makes it so real & amusing to watch at the same time.

I think this is such a wonderfully written play that it is even enjoyable just to read. You don't have to see it up on it's feet...but it does help a bit. Beautifully written characters that together, with their own different quirks, tear apart Life itself by examining a peice of canvas 'Painted white, with white diagonal lines' on it. I LOVE IT!!!!!!
