Sweet show - I enjoyed the concept of a current couple choosing to go back to 1955 (especially, since I always thought I would have enjoyed being an adult during that time). The clothes, music and settings were great! Goldstar came through with...continued

Wonderfully acted by a five person cast. Slickly produced. Lots of humor, but it also makes you think. I particularly liked the cheesy musical selections from the 50's, since I'm old enough to remember them. Anyone could enjoy this, but I...continued

Very enjoyable, well done. Not a major work of art, but that's OK, too.

The story is great. The sets are fantastic. The costumes are to drool for. The acting, while great, was a bit uneven during the preview. And I couldn't hear several key lines throughout the performance. So either mike up or project better.

Probably one of my favorite shows at ACT from over the years. The acting was excellent with just the right tone. Beautiful sets and costumes. Very clever and thought-provoking too. Can't say much without giving it away. Just be authentic!

Good show with humor and a bit of nostalgia about the 1950's. It was funny to hear the terms used some 50 years ago. The actors were all very good.

This play was just "OK" for me and the people I went with. The story line was thought-provoking and had potential. But the writing just wasn't "smart" enough...they were sort of heavy-handed with the various topics that were brought up, especially...continued

The play itself was OK. I expected more from the play. Too much hipe before hand did not help. Kind of drug on and in many parts became unbelieveable. Could not stand the ending. Would have wrote something different. The cast did a great job...continued

An excellent production, beautifully designed and well acted. Didn't care much for the play itself, a strong first act that set up a fasinating premise but it fizzles out in act two.

Being a child of the 50's a lot of memories were dredged up.

Well done production. Great story line which made the production go by too quickly.

If you thought the 50's were so great this production really puts it in persepctive.

The story deals with politics, morals and life in general.
Some...continued

1st act a bit slow and disjointed. Hard to hear young couple speaking and therefore keeping track of the story line. There were a lot of opportunities for more "humor", sad they didn't pick up on this. Young gay man needs to up his game from...continued

Great writing and an american version of "Midnight in Paris" with a bit of twist back to the post-Mad Man period.

ingenious writing of the contrasting periods, a couple going back in time from 2012 to 1955 into a gated community, exploring the...continued

The story was steeped in nostalgia for the 50's but if you were unfamiliar with the era, it may not have resonated very well. I enjoyed the oldies music and the period clothes. Altogether, the acting was excellent and the plot entertaining.

First act was very slow, setting up the premise belabored. Second act, when the finally got settled in "FiftiesTown" was better, but still only 'okay' for me.

The period costumes, sets and performances were all stellar! Not to be missed.
