Went with my wife and parents - we had a great time - laughter from start to finish. Brought back memories of our family trips, and the actions between our family. Parents have a moterhome - so that part gave them extra smiles.

I always like going to the Showboat. This was a fun show with some fun and interesting reminders of childhood vacations. Sometimes it seemed like kind of a lot of yelling - more than needed to make the point. But....isn't that kind of how...continued

If you are a Midwesterner and you ever took family vacations you will relate to this play. The humor is somewhat expected, yet is homey, kind and somewhat corny but pleasant. it may not win a Tony, but it will remind you of days in the past that...continued

The production was at once very funny and very moving. Great play, great venue. We're really glad we went, and highly recommend it.

Went with 7 year old, & we both enjoyed it tremendously. I was afraid he wouldn't understand the flashbacks concept, but he understood perfectly; it's now several days later, & he's still delightedly recounting the story.

There was a very small crowd, which was too bad, because this play is Fabulous. Maybe it's because we are in our late 60's and can remember both family vacations we took with our parents, and then with our own children. It brought it all back -...continued

This was my first show at the Riverboat and I really enjoyed it. Its an old style theater but its beautiful right on the river. It was cold when we went but I can not wait to go back in the summer. The show was so funny and being from a small...continued

Leaving Iowa is an unexpected gem: so heart-warming and FUNNY! This comedy is very entertaining. Everyone can probably relate to dealing with family dynamics, bratty kids in the car on a long vacation trip, a stoic mother, a nerdy father. The...continued

it was a really good play... some nostalgic memories for me of trips when I was young along with a story with a message of not to wait to tell your parents how you feel.

LOVED IT! We laughed and it was so true of the car trips we have taken as kids as well as those we have taken with our kids. The facial expressions of the actors were hilarious. I WOULD recommend it to others.

Great acting. Very funny and I am sure most everyone will be able to relate to this family's vacation. Yet there is a more serious meaningful message that underlies it all.

It was a good show. It was a small theater so all the seats were good. The actors were very good. It was different from anything I have seen.

Leaving Iowa was both funny and touching and the actors' performances were excellent. Many of the little details in this play were ones that had me recalling family vacations from my own childhood. The fact that it was on the Minnesota Centennial...continued
