    That Worst Nightmare, This Time Even Worse

    Charles Isherwood

    June 22, 2011: Prenuptial jitters and the paranormal, two staples of pop culture narratives, are coupled uneasily in “Sex Lives of Our Parents,” a new comedy by Michael Mitnick at the McGinn Cazale Theater as part of the Second Stage Theater’s uptown series.

    Marilyn Stasio

    June 22, 2011: Virginia Kull (the self-assured thesp who plays Virginia) and Ben Rappaport (star of NBC's "Outsourced," playing Jeff) are terrifically appealing as young lovers teetering on the brink of marriage -- if Virginia's attack of nervous ambivalence doesn't derail the nuptials her parents are eagerly planning.

    Sex Lives of Our Parents

    Dan Bacalzo

    June 23, 2011: How much do you really want to know about your mother's sexual history? In Michael Mitnick's Sex Lives of Our Parents, presented by Second Stage Theatre Uptown at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre, protagonist Virginia (played by Virginia Kull) learns more than she ever wanted to. The briskly paced 90-minute comedy is provocative and engaging, even if director Davis McCallum's production is unevenly executed.

    Sex Lives of Our Parents

    Erik Haagensen

    June 22, 2011: I confess to approaching Michael Mitnick's new play "Sex Lives of Our Parents" with more than a touch of skepticism. That old cliché of not wanting to think about your parents in the sack hardly seemed enough to hang a play on. But from the delightful opening pantomime, set to a recording of Frank Sinatra singing "If I Had You," of a young couple meeting, courting, and deciding to marry, it's clear that a refreshingly original sensibility is at work. Mitnick has a lot more on his mind than obvious laughs in this consistently inventive and surprising comedy-drama.

    Sex Lives of Our Parents

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    June 23, 2011: Yes, Virginia, there is a commitment clause. It goes with the whole marriage contract. That's no news bulletin. But that obvious truth comes with deep impact in "Sex Lives of Our Parents," a sly but ultimately murky comedy about a bride who fears being tied down.
