Really enjoyed the play...love Amy Brenneman, but the babysitter made the play. Seats were poor...4th row against the wall, left side. Unable to see stage left.

The Geffen is easy to get to and parking is so convenient. The play was wonderful, if a little preachy at times. We love Amy Brenneman from her days as Judge Amy and... continued

we received excellent tickets in the fourth row side section. the show had a very slow first half but it built the story and the second half moved faster and was enjoyable. The acting was excellent.

Great seats, terrific play - Geffen is always a positive experience. I'd love to read the play and then spend a semester discussing it! Not a bad note on the stage. Loved Alice!
