Nice, comfortable theater. Pleasant, helpful staff. All the actors in the play we're really terrific. This is some of the best stage performing I've ever seen. These actors are exceptional.
The play was very good, but We didn't understand the ending.

Play ends much too open-ended with many questions of what exactly happened in the last scene(s) and what does this mean.

The Aurora Theater is wonderful - its small and you are close to the actors - almost feel like you're in the play.

The acting in this play was superb by the whole ensemble.

The play was muddled in its intent.

Very easy to get tix with Goldstar.
