I have thought long and hard on this review since the performance last night. It boils down to - the score and musicians were great, the book was not. Such potential, but it fell apart in the second half. Last night was a preview, so changes can...continued

Excellent performances, musicians and set. Those of us in the group that grew up in San Diego enjoyed it more than those that did not.....guess we really got the jokes, community references and history.

Bad writing. The end of the play was terrible. It was like watching a high school production.
Some of the cast were good, others were campy.

This is a play I wanted to see from the first time I read the description, I try to take my daughter to at least one play a year. I recommended this to her, she wasn't interested though. With her being a high school senior involved in tech...continued

We did not enjoy being lectured to. The show was mildly entertaining and contrived. Music was good.

What amazing talent we are blessed with in San Diego! The show is riveting from the beginning notes of Gilbert's horn and the monologue of Richard (his diverse abilities as other characters is a hoot!), through the exquisite guitar and vocal solos...continued

Richard Montoya tells a great story of San Diego-Tijuana. Gilbert Castellanos' mesmerizing music brings out the enchantment of our city and her history - its clashes, its dance, its loves. Thank you both for making us laugh, love, and dance along.

Great music, but it was the worst play I've ever seen. Lots of people left during the intermission. If you value your time, money, and mental health, avoid this play. I can't believe the Rep produced this show! There aren't enough talented...continued
