Interesting show -- packed audience. No intermission, so a pretty short show. Seats were okay -- back side orchestra, but we could still see fine. Good actors, and I loved the set.

"Race" certainly provides food for thought, the following day I was thinking about the subject. Mamet's storytelling ability is amazing.

A well-conceived, well-constructed and well-performed play. One of the best my wife and I have seen in recent years.

Mamet is always interesting and thought provoking. The set was attractive, the actors solid, and the presentation was tight and professional. All around, a nice night at the theater. Thanks, Goldstar!

We had very good seats but some times the actors were speaking with their backs to the audience and made it a little hard to clearly hear their lines. The dress was casual and the staff was very good about telling us that there would not be an...continued
