Tyhe actiing was good but the script was poor. It tried to be something w/deep meaning but was only statingthe obvious which kept leading one to believe that something more profound was going to occur. And ultimately it was just predictable and...continued

We are not wrestling fans but out 10 year old grandson is and we wanted him to have a positive first theater experience. Wow, were we surprised. The show is a metaphor for the entertainment industry in general. The acting was superior and I...continued

I wish the play lived up to expectations. The acting is excellent. The play leaves something to be desired. The first act really drags. Too many long monologues. The second act is better, more action. The message comes across too strongly. ...continued

Attending this production was like drawing back a curtain on a world that is totally unfamiliar to me. I knew wrestling was choreographed -- did not know the extent of it. The actors were powerful and intense (and beautiful to watch. Hermosa!). I...continued

Awesome experience! Equal doses of physical and mental action. Offers great insight into the phenomena of professional wrestling but has commentary that reaches far beyond it. There's also ample humor.

I had a great time seeing this play! The acting ( and this includes the physical acting required to do the wrestling moves ) was awesome! I lost count how many times we laughed. I recommend seeing this show if you can as tonight is the final...continued

The acting was very good and everyone knew their parts and was in shape. The story was a bit slow in the first half--I felt that all the action essentially happened in 5 minutes in the second half. Ultimately the play was entertaining and...continued

Theater is "show not tell".
This script tried to tell too much, instead of show. I would not recommend it, but it was nice for a night out with something different. The script is weak.
