Things You Shouldn't Say Past Midnight (Stage, 1999)

Current Status:
In Season

We gave it a B+

Singles meets Three’s Company in this boisterously naughty romp about three couples searching for love (and lust) in New York City. One pair’s quarrel — sparked by bizarre, politically incorrect pillow talk — sets off a farcical chain of events that includes an offbeat May-December coupling, a speakerphone-aided group-therapy session, and lots of cheerful bonking. Featuring lively performances from Ellen’s Clea Lewis and Jeffrey Donovan (as a college-educated nympho and sensitive Mafia hitman, respectively) and sprinklings of nudity, Things You Shouldn’t Say Past Midnight is merry sitcom fare without the network censors. B+
