Righteous smackdown of moronic 'men are from mars women are from venus' play

This is what you get once you start letting women review plays
The outdated assumption of Matt Morillo’s two-character play at Theater for the New City is that girls just want to get married...
...Mr. Morillo, who also wrote and directed “Angry Young Women in Low-Rise Jeans With High-Class Issues,” seems to be reaching for some up-to-the-minute social observation. What he has done instead is channel some ghosts from lame old comedies.

No wonder the male-dominated NYTimes and the male-dominated NY theatre world have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the scary 21st century, where female voices are heard more often than 5 - 7% of the time!
