SUPER!! Wondered how they'd stage this in such a small space. They choreographed all the set changes (done by 4 wonderful actors) with great comic bits. Almost stole the show from the 4 main characters --all of whom were top notch...continued

My husband and I got a great deal. We got there in time for wine tasting and excited that we even saw/spoke to a celebrity (actor Creed from Office) who was also there to enjoy the play. I had no leg room which became really bothersome to my...continued

This is the essence of the live theater experience. Small, intimate setting; highly creative set design; excellent casting and superb acting. I look forward to attending future performances at this venue -- they have set a very high bar with...continued

We had a great time at this small theater production. It was an informal atmosphere - wine was served and you could take it in the theater with you, which was a good thing because they were drinking a lot of nice wine in the play. The story...continued

Really good production. I liked it a lot better than the movie. All the actors were great and the set was wonderful. The up-front wine tasting with the playwright was an added bonus.

Clever, crisp dialogue and spell-binding plot are the key features of this fine piece, delivered by excellent actors, with taut direction. Part spoof of wine snobbery, part farce, part drama, all-in-all, a most entertaining evening in an...continued

Even for someone who has seen the 2004 movie of the same name, this one is great! Just plain fun and to me even more humor than the movie.

The play had some very clever aspects and it was an enjoyable evening, but one of the original cast members was substituted and her performance was not up to par. Also, sometimes the dialog was very difficult to hear and our seats were in the...continued

The play and the actors were excellent! There was one problem however, it needed a bit more editing. It was a tad too long. 4.6

The play was very nicely done. It is about two and a half hours long, but it went by so fast, you don't really notice it. The play is a bit different from the movie. The actors and actresses did a great job. I really enjoy it.
