  1. Southie folks do NOT like change. That’s for damn sure. Of course everyone liked Playwright so probably a very smart move – probably didn’t need to make the change in the first place. Hope the food is Punk and Poet good as opposed to original Playwright food.

  2. P&P food is horrible, bring back everything about the old Playwright! Everything about the P&P was weird from opening day, all anyone ever did was complain about one thing or another and I’ve only seen it “playwright busy” when they bus in the kids from the Social Boston Sports leagues…

    Happy to hear the PW is coming back!

  3. Our boycott succeeded! Can’t wait to see the boys throwing napkins to “This Girl” on Southie Sundays again. Good times. I hope the “Design Consultant” they hired to do punk & poet has a new job. That was hands down the worst idea in recent Southie history.

  4. JoeMac says that is good since some days it did not open till 4 menu was not that good drinks too high

  5. How did they expect to be successful when they are consistently “out of”
    Menu items ? Hope they star5 with anew chef.
