Found it annoying and distraction to have folks sucking on their drinks during the performance!

This particular play runs 90min with no intermission...potty break BEFORE it begins!

The seats are extremely uncomfortable. Bring something for padding.

Incredible! I saw this production twice already and I'd love to go back for more! A strong and clever script, compelling direction, and two extremely capable counterparts to bring it all to life! It's what a night at the theater is all about!

An absolutely wonderful performance! It takes the audience from lighthearted comedy to thought provoking seriousness...all in one. Maggie Corbett (Franny) is adorable... continued

I expected some deep thoughts after watching this play. It turned out to be some funny play perfect to chill with on Saturday evening.
I like to watch very ambitious plays and this one unfortunately wasn't one of them...

Description

In A Beautiful Spell, Jim and Franny wake up in the middle of the night panicked to discover that they no longer love each other. Is it real or just a night terror? Frightened and confused, the couple struggles desperately to get back what they’ve lost – before the sun comes up. A Beautiful Spell exposes the deep and sometimes painful truths that lie beneath the surface of wedded bliss in this hilarious and touching new play.
