Disappointed with the seats from Goldstar / Red Envelope. We were stuck in the back in a barely filled theater. Considering canceling my Red Envelope membership and unsubscribing from Goldstar because of it. So disappointed.

This is one of the best plays the Pasadena Playhouse has presented in years. The audience is made to care about the characters. The story is multi layered and involving. Great acting and modern, projected scenery help to bring the story to life.

The play was very well acted and extremely relevant to the times. The seats (I mean the actual cushions and such) were horrible. A metal bar in my backside the whole time. I have to sit back and up to see over the tall people in front of me. ...continued

This play packs a lot into a fairly short time. The story tracks fairly closely the Duke Lacrosse case, with a focus on a young, ambitious reporter who gets swept up in her own initial success. It shows pretty clearly the pressures and...continued

We really enjoyed this thoughtful play, which raises many questions about media and "unbiased" reporting. We had great discussions afterwards. Great seats; park behind the Playhouse for easier entrance/exit.

Play was relevant, probably happens all the time today. Taught me a lesson not to believe anything written in the newspaper - do a little research myself. . A WOW!!

Above the Fold was one of the best productions that we have ever seen at the Pasadena Playhouse. The cast and production were excellent. The play itself caused one to pause and think. We were also quite pleased with our Goldstar front row seats.

It was much better than I anticipated. It presents issues of the power of the press and and of criminal prosecutors, with racial issues "mixed in."The power of both is subject to abuse and when abused has the potential for grievously effecting the...continued

I thought the play was well written and the plot was good. The actress, Taraji is also one of my favorite actresses. I think it needed more drama into it. Look at Tyler Perry's Marriage Counselor play for example. Two guys fought, there's a...continued

Above the Fold was outstanding! A must see play! All the performers were great, but Tarajie P. Hudson was outstanding! The writer did an incredable job on the story line. Be aware, this story may cause you to think more when listenting to the...continued

Sensational play, excellent actors and production. More expensive than plays in the tiny theatres, but it was worth it

The subject matter of this play deserved a better script. The playwright made the mistake of thinking an argument or raising voices was conflict.
The actors were much better than the play.

Goldstar did a good job of communicating with the...continued
