Production is silly and heart warming

play review


With shades of “Where’s Poppa?,” Andrew Bergman’s comic play “Social Security” focuses on an elderly widow who wreaks havoc on the normal lives of her daughters when she comes to live with them. The original 1986 Broadway production had everything going for it: a top-flight director (Mike Nichols), brilliant stars like Marlo Thomas, Ron Silver and Olympia Dukakis, and a […]
