It was a very good show. A sweet slice of Americana. Touching & funny.Excellent performances by Nancy Robinette & Rick Foucheux. The fiddle accompaniment was a great touch.

It was refreshing to see E. O'Neill write a play about a loving and functional family.The actors were enjoying themselves and acting like a family that had been living together for a long time.

Nice venue. Play was not current and seemed to drag on.
Was difficult to stay focused on the actors due to hard to hear and low volumns.

Not the Eugene O'Neil that you are used to: Ah Wilderness! is actually quite sweet and affirming. It was a very enjoyable evening. As expected, Rick Foucheux and Nancy Robinette were a delight, but the entire ensemble was stellar.

The seats were great, but the acting and singing (what little there was), did not really end up being the quality I expected. I will give Arena Stage a second chance, but we ended up leaving after the second act, which I almost never do.

It was a great show - loved the humor, and the actors did a great job portraying the characters in the time period this play took place. The theatre itself was great... continued
