Very well done. Play made me want to know a lot more about the author of the book the play was based on.

Well staged, well acted performance. The emphasis is slightly different fromt the Broadway version which makes for some interesting comparisons if you see both.

Great acting, enthralling screenplay, beautiful stage. A smart play touching upon sexual fantasies, but never erotic or vulgar, with an unexpected roller coster between reality, stage reality and play within the play.

I enjoyed this show. It was edgy so not for everyone. Thought both actors were good in their performances, but actress did an outstanding job moving seamlessly between her roles as play progressed. Still left some questions unanswered and maybe...continued

Interesting show! Very entertaining. My husband and I saw it for our anniversary. It wasn't as sexy as it was portrayed to be, but it was definitely intriguing. The female lead was very funny and the male lead did a good job.

Vibrant play about casting an actress for a play. Sexual charge dominated the venue.

This play is riveting. There are only two actors on stage for 90 minutes, and the twists and turns of their behavior and the plot is fascinating to watch. The physical demands of the play are astonishing. The use of costuming, accents, and body...continued

Great performances in this 2 person play. Laugh out loud dialogue. Saw it at the Susanne Roberts Theater in Phila Pa, it's a great venue.

Neither as hot, funny, or as dark as advertised. The

"action" moved in fits and starts and the drama seemed uneven. The performances were of high quality.
