Parking costs $10 or $12, depending on the day. No elevator in the garage. Street parking is scarce, and since there's no intermission, you can't go out & pay for more time.

This play is perfectly cast. All the actors manage the loopy, dark humor of it without losing sight of the larger story.

Not the best play I've been to, by any stretch. I enjoyed a few small sections, my husband, however, did not. The ending was quite abrupt and in no way satisfying. I will say that the acting was very good!

Excellent story that made the people of the West make sense to me (I lived out there for the past decade), as well as made me think of the American experience in a way I never had before. Impeccable performances as well.
