Tanna Frederick is absolutely magnetic (as always) in the lead role. The rest of the cast is excellent, they all properly depict this period piece. Well done indeed.

If you think you’ve seen this play before, you’re deluding yourself. You haven’t really seen it until you witness this magnetic performance.

A wonderfully written play very well acted. For whatever reason some of the dialog was lost. It is possible because of the accents needed, since it takes place in central, rural America. Overall a very good experience.

I think the acting had been overrated. The con man was the best.
There were no snacks or water at intermission.

First time at the theater - liked it...would go to another venue there. Should have more assortments of refreshments as well as some wine would be tasteful. Production was cute!
