Birthday Candles, the new Roundabout Theatre production starring Debra Messing, best known for NBC’s Will & Grace, opened on Sunday at the American Airlines Theater to completely mixed reviews. The saccharine production, full of cute profundities, either had folks sniffing in their handkerchiefs and holding back tears, or looking for the door and suppressing loud groans. The set design by Christine Jones gets universal praise, but the challenge for the cast to play characters across a 90 year span may have been too tall an order. In the end, this cake might not be for everyone; but if you’re looking for something a little sweet, sprinkled with some words of wisdom, this show might be the perfect treat for you.
