$9 underneath the theater - so a little pricey, but convenient.

I read the LA Times review after I went, and pretty much agreed with all of it. Great acting by all three performers - and some great two-person scenes - but somehow they... continued

Great job all around. I thought Frances Conroy was the standout performer, but she probably has the best role in the play. Excellent night at the theatre.

I thought the acting was terrific. The play is dated, but still very relevant and enjoyable.

Description

Martin Sheen, Frances Conroy and Brian Geraghty to star in The Subject Was Roses. When it comes to  family, there are three sides to every story.

A young man’s return from World War II becomes a catalyst for an emotional tug-of-war in which love  is a prize and a weapon.. Martin Sheen returns to the play that earned him a Tony Award nomination in 1964; now as the patriarch of a family forced to confront its own privatized emotions and buried truths.

Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under_) and Brian Geraghty (_The Hurt Locker) complete the family triangle struggling to reconnect after years of emotional distance and rediscover the beauty in the simple gift of roses.
