Ninety five minutes without intermission fly by and before you know it, the time for a standing ovation has arrived.

Innovative and thoughtful show about the difficult life of a severely hearing-impaired & talented man with no speech. Enter a young, assertive journalist who interviews him and you have a powerful love story filled with challenges. It's...continued

Extraordinary acting for a touching story. The fact that the protagonist is a deaf actor (and an actual director) brings this a raw authenticity that makes it a must-see. Kudos also to the two supporting actors who skillfully play multiple...continued

Exploration of relationship issues, communication, language, and working through differences was interesting. Acting was good. I wasn't able to follow some of the non-verbal, mime type expressions of the lead actor, but that might have just been...continued

The play was fine, acting good (especially the man and woman who played multiple roles), but overall I found the script to be fairly simplistic. Theater seats were comfortable but the theater itself was quite cold.

I loved this play, the story and the quality of the acting was as good or better than many plays I've seen in SF. Fascinating combination of English and American Sign Language. It was really wonderful.

The play was really wonderful, poignant, and educational as well. Sorry to say that we
were disappointed by the large Goldstar charge of $6 per ticket. Seems like a lot.

This was an honest comedy about adults finding and keeping love in their lives despite issues with family, friends, work, sterotypes and communication. It was beautiful to watch and very emotional at times. I appreciate how hard all four cast...continued

"The Loudest Man on Earth" was excellent! My daughter who see's a lot of theater loved it also. They did an amazing job with only four actors. I would love to see it again and maybe read the script!

Great acting, well-written script, nice set design. A few bobbles with 2 supporting actors where they broke character, but otherwise really enjoyed it.
