    A Bride’s Best Friends for Never

    Charles Isherwood

    July 27, 2010: Imbibe gently, if at all, before attending “Bachelorette,” the sensational new comedy by Leslye Headland set during a toxic party on the eve of a swanky Manhattan wedding. Bottles of bubbly are consumed with breathtaking dispatch by pretty young things in party dresses in this scarifying tale of mean-girl malice and generational malaise. Even confirmed teetotalers may emerge from the McGinn/Cazale Theater, where the play opened on Monday night, feeling the urge to slither into a cab and check into rehab.

    Sinfully funny

    Frank Scheck

    July 27, 2010: Bachelor parties gone wild have gotten lots of stage and screen time. But if Leslye Headland's wickedly comic play is any indication, bachelorette parties are more fun.

    Bachelorette

    Dan Bacalzo

    July 27, 2010: Leslye Headland's writing has been compared to fellow playwright Neil LaBute, and it's easy to see why. Her play, Bachelorette, now being presented by Second Stage at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre, has a darkly comic and brutal view of interpersonal relationships that is similar to those found in many of LaBute's works. Most of the characters are not very likable, and yet their bad behavior is also strangely compelling -- particularly when brought to life by the show's strong ensemble cast.

    Erik Haagensen

    July 26, 2010: According to a New York Times profile, 29-year-old playwright Leslye Headland posts on Twitter under the moniker "Molotovcocktail." That seems appropriate, as her new bite-size comedy "Bachelorette," about three young women behaving very badly, prizes shock over substance and judgment over character. Though Second Stage Theatre Uptown has given it a first-class production, with astute direction from the talented Trip Cullman and sharp performances from a six-person cast, all the queen's horses can't disguise the depressing shallowness of the proceedings.

    Bachelorette

    Simon Saltzman

    July 27, 2010: Think of the dark underbelly of Sex and the City and you will get a glimmer of what playwright Leslye Headland has created in her nearly tragic, extremely caustic, and totally depressing dramedy Bachelorette. There is even a reference made to that popular TV series. We can only presume to guess the role that drugs, alcohol, and sex (those things that ordinarily serve to enhance life for many,) plays on lives not anchored by maturity, self-worth, and a conscientious value-system. But, in dramatic terms, we are also disposed to be intrigued by the lifestyle of the reckless, young, beautiful singles who have chosen to immerse themselves in a whirl of extremely dangerous and disingenuous social behavior.
