This was a fun play that took you back in time to an age that luckily isn't around anymore. It was fun, the music, lighting and costumes were spot on, and I wanted it to go on and on. After seeing the play, I now want to read the Beebo books!
Quotes & Highlights
- “Director Ehly and a strong cast mine Beebo Brinker for not only its noir-style humor but for the sobering, resonant truths about the characters’ search for happiness in a judgmental world.” --Miami Herald
- "Kudos to Kutumba Theatre Project for adding spice to what can sometimes be bland theatre in south Florida with their production of The Beebo Brinker Chronicles." --Edge Miami
- "This play is bawdy and salacious, full of suggestive language, sexual situations, even a little nudity – all for a cause that is both winningly witty and emotionally sensitive." –-Boca Magazine
