She accepts his invitation, but underneath the gloss of hope that their relationship might be repaired, all the issues that have kept them apart come roiling to the surface.

    These Two Leap to Judgment (Not That You Should, Too)

    Ben Brantley

    February 2, 2014: Christina Masciotti treats her characters with a kindness and patience that are usually accorded to only the very young or the very old. Take the middle-age father and adolescent daughter who make up the entire cast of Adult, Ms. Masciotti’s gentle new comedy at the Abrons Arts Center. Self-centered and shortsighted in ways common to their ages and relationship, Stanley (Jimmie James) and Tara (Betsy Hogg) would seem to be types that might be found on television many times a week, setting off bursts of canned chuckles. They’re the kind of relatives who are always yelling across the generation gap and getting on each other’s nerves by make grand pronouncements on subjects they know nothing about.
