Synopsis: 

Relatively Speaking is comprised of three one-act comedies springing from a different branch of the family tree. In Talk Therapy, Ethan Coen uncovers the sort of insanity than can only come from family. In George is Dead, Elaine May explores the hilarity of death. And in Honeymoon Motel, Woody Allen invites you to the sort of wedding day you won’t forget.

    Each Family, Tortured in Its Own Way

    CHARLES ISHERWOOD

    October 20, 2011: Mothers come in for some serious savaging in “Relatively Speaking,” a reasonably savory tasting platter of comedies by Ethan Coen, Elaine May and Woody Allen that opened on Thursday night at the Brooks Atkinson Theater.

    'Relatively Speaking': A mixed bag on Broadway

    Elysa Gardner

    October 20, 2011: Less intentionally, this collection of short plays, which opened Thursday at Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theatre, proves that similar extremes can apply to theater. For these accounts of homegrown neuroses — by veteran wits Elaine May, Ethan Coen and Woody Allen— offer both disarming highs and disappointing lows.

    NY Review: 'Relatively Speaking'

    David Sheward

    October 20, 2011: First the good news: Woody Allen is as funny as ever. His one-act play "Honeymoon Motel," the capper on an evening of three short works collectively titled "Relatively Speaking," has so many laughs packed into its 60-minute running time that audiences had better make sure their health insurance is paid up. They'll need treatment for aching jaws and smarting bellies from laughing so hard. However, the preceding two pieces, Ethan Coen's "Talking Cure" and Elaine May's "George Is Dead," provide mixed results.

    Theater Review: 'Relatively Speaking' -- no stars

    Matt Windman

    October 20, 2011: It turns out three heads are not better than one. Asked to describe the merits of his new one-act comedy, Woody Allen told The New York Times that it has no “redeeming social value” or “entertainment Value” and hat he wrote it “only to take out my new paper shredder.”

    Relatively Speaking

    Andy Propst

    October 20, 2011: A few hearty laughs can be found in the winsome, if not always winning, trio of one-acts that comprise Relatively Speaking, now playing at Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theatre, But given the estimable writers of the pieces, Ethan Coen, Elaine May and Woody Allen, and the proven talents of the high-profile emsemnble, it's difficult to not be disappointed by the production, which should be the comic pinnacle for the Broadway season.
