While I am sure the cast is just wonderful for this play, this conversation was a bit strange and left me wondering what was the point?

Comments such as "super-fun" made me think I was listening to a group of somewhat unsophisticated and goofy teenagers. My 13 year old niece is better at conversation than this group. I was left shaking my head and wondering why they were being interviewed at all.

I know they are "super-good" at acting but they each might want to consider that they are no longer 13 going on 30.

Judy Greer is so underrated as an actress. She's so versatile and has such a broad range. Her character on Archer is fantastic.

Liking Katie Holmes doing live theatre! Her better performances (I'm thinking first of "Pieces of April") really suggest she was destined for it!

Question for Katie Holmes: What attracts you to do live theater? Is there ever a part of you that's fearful before you go on stage?

Judy Greer looks so much like my first girlfriend that it is hard (sometimes) to watch her performances. Any Norwegian genes there? Might you be related?
