The show was EXCELLENT! Yes, some of the dialogue was done at a rapid pace, but in hindsight, I believe that this "machine-gun" approach may have been intentional. ALL... continued

Though I enjoyed the play as a whole and the issues addressed within (mostly because I had seen it before and knew what to expect) I strained to understand the dialogue... continued

Well acted. I saw the play at the Goodman a couple of years ago but the setting at the Raven was far more intimate and worked well with this production.

My wife and I took our twenty-something kids along to this show. All four of us really enjoyed it. I agree with some of the others that the dialog was spoken extremely... continued

Went during the preview, so have to allow for some flubbed lines, timing and scene change problems. The script was compelling and still very socially relevant. The male... continued

Well written and performed production. It held my attention through the total program.
I was there was for a preview. There were a few slips, but the production is sound and will get past the minor errors. Very engaging naratives.

The play is wonderful and the production as good as it gets! It was interesting to see a later August Wilson play. The tension between old and new and the possibility... continued

Wonderful play! Rapid dialogue is sometimes hard to follow. However, all the actors were terrific performers. We highly recommend the play.

Raven does it again: a superb, thought-provoking production by the late and much-lamented August Wilson.

Really good acting, even through a few flubbed lines--it was a preview, so I sort of expected that kind of thing might occur. There was a school group there and they were... continued

The Raven is an intimate, out of the way theatre and yes, I highly recommend it. I have seen many shows there and have never been disappointed. Radio Golf is no... continued

"Radio Golf" was a very enjoyable experience. This production really picked up in the second act, and uses some amazing monologues to showcase incredible performances. Highly recommended.

I'm a huge August Wilson fan, and I particularly enjoy this play. The production, however, was not polished. The pacing was off and three out of the five actors seemed uncomfortable with their lines.
