The newspaper reviews and the (so far) one other Goldstar review are accurate. "Kid Sister" is not a happy story by any means, but there are quite a few funny moments.... continued

Riveting! I felt like I was on a roller coaster ride. Well acted. Love the intimate space.

An intense play, similar in many ways to Profiles' production of Killer Joe earlier this year, though that one had a comic streak beneath the chaos, a kind of gleefully... continued

Some of the professional critics widely disagree about the merits of this play. You need to judge for yourself. I wanted to see Allison Torem and her performance did... continued

The acting was great and made the characters really come to life. The play was really over the top violent probably unecessarily so. It made it a satire on violence and... continued

My girlfriend and I thought the actors would good,

As usual, a great performance on the part of the actors - but the ending fell flat for me. I'd see it for the acting, just forgive the scripts shortcomings.

I was sitting in the first row and had to close my eyes several times. It was too violent for my taste. I should have read the review more carefully. The acting was very good, too realistic for me.

It's unfortunate that I also have to compare Kid Sister to Killer Joe, but that is inevitable. The trailer-trashy characters and decor are hard to really like and from... continued

First off, great staff at the theater. They accommodated us from a previous show we missed. Terrific cast and a fun experience. Felt like you are in the play.

First rate acting from all members of the cast, and a very reasonable ticket price through Goldstar.

I like the intimate theater setting. The play is very unconventional with the meth addict and the incestuous relationship between the main characters.
I loved this play :)

Once again, fine ensemble work from an exceptional group of actors. The play itself just isn't that well-written.

Powerful rendering of the lower-end of humanity's situations and relationships - somewhat similar to "Killer Joe" and use that as a guide about liking this one. ... continued
