I love this play & have seen it many times before, but this was not a well done or believeable production. The interracial families do not translate for the times. A... continued

Though I have quibbles here and there with this production (why leave the distracting house lights on during the first act?), overall it was well done and very moving. ... continued

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this classic. The story is timeless though what was most surprising for me was Wilder's foresight and daring. The staging was... continued

Our seats were not as premium as in the past - had a little trouble understanding all the players. Generally, the 4 of us enjoyed the show. The racial mix was a bit... continued

I should have known better than to get tickets for this play, having read the description. Even a drastic 're-imagining' can't save it from being a load of... continued

Good Production! Good cast! Good technical support.
Thoroughly enjoyed the show, quite a departure from other "Our Towns" I've seen!

Uncomfortable air conditioning (or lack thereof!)

This is one of the great American tales. The cast did a great job on this story of middle America small town life at the turn of the century. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this production. I am very familiar with the play, so had high expectations, and was not disappointed. The acting was fantastic by each member of the cast. Thanks for making it a great night!

This was a great play about a small New Hampshire town at the turn of the century. The central figures were very believable and acted well.
We loved it and give it 5 stars.

Excellent acting in a play that brings you back to life at the turn of the century and shows the differences of life today.

I read a review prior to attending, so was prepared for the minimalist scenery and miming of daily tasks (pouring coffee, opening curtains). I really enjoyed the play. The actors did a superb job.
