All of the actors were good; the male actors were especially strong and believable. The set was excellent; reminded me of the Dick Van Dyke show. Go see for a fun experience.

Great show with good actors. Didn't seem dated for a period piece. Air- conditioning wasn't working--fan that was used was very noisy and distracted from the play.

The most annoying thing was cigarette smoke. They would light them and then leave them in the ashtray to burn. I have COPD and had to use my inhaler 2x - one doesn't expect that in a play without advance warning of smoke. Also the brothers...continued

Well acted; well directed. Very funny. Easy and free parking. Not a bad seat in the house.

Good staging, acting ok, although I thought the lead, Alan, was a bit weak in the role. Not the funniest Neil Simon, but chuckles throughout. Too much reliance on doors opening and closing, as in many farces. ACT tries hard, and deserves support...

Come Blow Your Horn was...okay. Just that - not more, not less. Some of the acting (especially the mother) was a bit over the top. The older brother and father were better than just okay.

But, if you are looking for a bottom line, we were happy...continued

I like The American Century Theater because you see for very reasonable prices historically important plays, usually true to their own context, and the dramaturg writes up a very detailed audience guide which puts everything in perspective, talks...continued

The Center in which the theater is located seems to be a wonderful facility and the theater itself is very nice. The set was excellent and all of the actors exceptional as was the direction of the highly physical action. My only negative criticism...continued

We got there just in time. Did not know which theatre to go to..one or two. Wasn't given out with address.
Play was funny, as I expected. Not too many there to enjoy it

Was treated especially nice at box office simply because I purchased tickets with Gold Star. Enjoyed play, thought acting was very professional. The amenities are nothing to write home about but then I already knew that.

Enjoyed the play very much, thought the acting was great. Only wish it were more clearly marked outside. It was pouring rain and we weren't quite sure which door took us to the theatre.

I bought 2 tickets on Goldstar for Come Blow Your Horn and my husband couldn't make it due to illness. When I got to the box office, I was told that there was nothing they could do because it was the end of the run and the next play was not until...continued
