Funny, clever, and really charming event. I expected a reading, but was surprised and pleased by the opportunity for questions and answers. My seats were excellent, and the $10 price reassured me that it's still possible to get out and have fun in these tight economic times. I look forward to more events like this. Thanks Goldstar!

Greatly enjoyed the event. David read and answered lots of questions. He was very humble. I brought a friend who was unfamiliar with his work and she had a great time.
Our seats were good and Goldstar delivered once again.
