My husband went to this show with mixed ideas. He thought a 1 man show would be very difficult to do. He came away having totally enjoyed and still amazed that Braxton was able to do it. I, being a retired teacher, totally enjoyed it too. I...continued

This was by far the very best One-Man Show I have ever seen! Braxton is brilliant and believable. My 14 year old son was skeptical about attending such a small venue, but he too found it very entertaining and I even saw his eyes tear up during a...continued

The story hasn't changed and we've all heard and seen it in movies and on TV. Aaron Braxton's enthusiasm and acting ability to portray numerous characters wasn't enough for me.

Its basically a one man show .. but believe me, one man is all it takes. Aaron did a great job portraying all characters in this touching & well written play. Be prepared to laugh, cry & get inspired !!!!!

This is a very intense show, especially if you are a teacher! So well performed by Aaron! My only criticism is that because he works so hard, he sweats so profusely that it is distracting. Maybe a towel and shirt change would be in order?

i enjoyed the play and recommend it for Mr. Brixton's realistic approach to many situations that exist now in many LAUSD's schools. He is both comedic and touching in his presentations of his past student's lifestyles. Don't miss this show.

Aaron Braxton, former substitute teacher at LAUSD, has captured the trials and tribulations of the kids who he had the pleasure of teaching along with those of his own as he served in this capacity. He is remarkable in every role he undertakes,...continued

Truely great was Aaron Braxton's multi-role performance. He has magical talent at bringing his students alive, conjuring them out of thin (stage) air. The 80 minute show is intense to the end. This was more an ode to the plight of the inner city...continued

Aaron Braxton has done a fine job integrating education and art. I can tell by his writing and performance that he was probably an excellent teacher. He seems to have as much passion for his students and his does for his craft. Very well done and...continued
