We were disappointed in this production and agreed with the reveiw in the Houston Chronicle that the main character was miscast. There were also quite a number of staging problems such as doors opening by themselves.

About the Ticket Supplier: A.D. Players

A. D. Players, or After Dinner Players, was founded in 1967 by Jeannette Clift George. The troupe of part-time actors performed its first performance in 1968, and seven years later, in 1975, the Players created a Touring Company. In the late 1970s, the Players purchased the Grace theater building. Soon, the Touring Company was making an international performances, and the Players also established the Theater Arts Academy, originally providing drama classes to children. A. D. Players continued to grow through the early nineties, even expanding with the building of Saint Street Annex, which served as the new home for costume shop, Touring Company, rehearsal hall, and Theater Arts Academy. The company also started Houston's first year round children's theater at St. Luke's United Methodist Church Rotunda. In 1997, A. D. Players made their off-broadway debut of John His Story at Lamb's Theatre, New York City.

The future of A. D. Players is bright. In 2003, the company purchased over three aces of land in the Galleria area of Houston. The purchase of this land will enable A. D. Players to consolidate six current theater locations, including a 450-seat Mainstage Theater, a 300-seat Children's Theater, and a 150-seat Black Box Theater. This new facility, located in one of the top tourist destinations in Houston, will enable A. D. Players to continue serving the Houston community with its unique artistic signature of hope and faith.
