I expected parking to be an issue, it is Westwood after all, but there was a lot right next door and the fee was reasonable at $7.00.

excellent theater! the story was meaty and really made you think. the dialogue was original: funny, painfully sad, and realistic. loved the acting. don't miss it.

The whole cast was great, the tone was not as dire as the synopsis might suggest - there was crisp dialogue and characters acting in unexpected, authentic ways.

The play wasn't perfect, but the production was excellent and the actors were all terrific.
