A good first act was followed by a disappointingly poor second act. This story has been done before, e.g. in "Naming Names." Unfortunately, neither play has dealt very well with a very important historical time, namely the Hollywood Black List.

Wonderful cast, with a well written play. I would recommend this play to anyone who loves live theater.
