Loved the idea of the production but not the execution. Getting tickets at Will Call was totally uncoordinated (We stood in line for an hour). Production start time was considerably delay (because of the Will Call line?). The sound system was...continued

The play was a treat. Even better was meeting/taking pix with THE LIVING AIRMEN in attendance. It was closing night for the play. Very informative and enlightening. EAT before you go b/c the 5:30 doors open WAS A LIE! Doors opened at 7 ish...continued

The play was good. It started a little slow, but then as the story line was revealed it became interesting and enjoyable. The points of laughter were great. I would recommend if asked if someone asked if they should go and see it. Thank...continued

This was a fantastic play- The acting was superb and the story was incredibly uplifting. Having actual members of the Tuskegee Airmen in the audience made the night incredibly special.

The will call situation at the theatre was not pleasant--but...continued

The play itself is pretty good. The acting is excellent. However, while I understand low budget productions, and can accept the minimal staging (done well under the circumstances), there was no or little effort to create a true "1940's" look in...continued

The play was an awesome experience to put into perspective that these men did not whine for handouts or special treatment. The constant theme was that hard work pays off and to remain 'focused." I am glad we ...continued

FIVE stars for the performance; ONE star for the theater. If you get a chance to see this show, go. The evening I went, there were actual Tuskegee Airmen in attendance and we gave them the standing ovation that their service demands. The show...continued

The show was very good with a wonderful ensemble of actors. They did a great job. That being said, didn't someone edit this thing? Really, really needed a decent edit which would not have hurt the quality. The first act was far too long for...continued

Play was wonderful; full of information.
We got to the Box Office at 5:30 and had to wait outside until almost 7 before getting tickets to get in. Play started about 7:30. Was very disappointed with that.

The play itself was fabulous. But the organization running the theatre was terrible. Goldstar indicated that will call was 5:30 and the play was starting at 630. However, upon arrival at 5:35 pm we stood in line for an hour. There was no one...continued

The play was very well told and emotional. I really connected with the characters and was a little teary at the end. The struggles were very real and humbling. Sometimes you forget about the sacrifices people made in order for us to live with...continued

The play was fantastic. I loved how each character came alive.The story line was very clear. I also enjoyed watching the surviving Tuskegee Airman get out of their fancy limosine. I felt proud to be in the company of Heros. The down side of the...continued
