The play is slight, like a whiff of perfume, but enjoyable in its way -- The woman playing Garbo was quite remarkable and the actress portraying Isadora Duncan was lively and very beautiful but it was all like a faded souvenir from the past -- I...continued

Not my cup of tea, but the cast did a good job with the script they had to work with.

The best....The art deco set was phenomenal and wonderfully functional with multiple concealed exits. Imaginative improvization in changing locations without set changes (e.g. rowing to an island using a bench & swimmming in a lake by jumping off...continued

Great script. The writer also plays the lead. Would prefer a stronger actress here. All in all, an interesting night.
