This was one of the finest shows I have seen in many years. It had me mesmerized from beginning to end. The acting was superb, especially the brilliant performance of the lead actor.

The play was poignant and moving. I'm hearing impaired and so had a difficult time hearing all the dialog but that did not impair my perception of the story. I saw Damon Dering as never before. Great acting by supporting cast especially newcomer...continued

Great opportunity to see a well-performed play in an intimate environment. Thanks, Goldstar, for the 1/2 price tickets, and Tempe's Stray Cat theater for hosting this show.
