Definitely an experience and not the usual linear narrative. I drag my husband to a play every five years or so (I go every week) and he loved this. (-: Fantastically intense and surprisingly funny. Fab Scottish cast + loved the SF Armory Drill...continued

Innovative and well staged performance illustrating the life, history, traditions of Scottish "Black Watch" from 1725 to current times. Depiction of life in a war zone was especially poignant. It ran gamut from escapism to very touching moments...continued

A truly unique theater experience in the perfect setting. The actors are highly talented, including their singing and choreography, and the sound system brings an added dimension. While is dialogue was sometimes difficult to understand due to...

Fantastic show. The stadium seating was painful at the 1 hour mark and unbearable at the end.

We almost walked out. The writer had an obsession with the words fuck and fucking. Most of the play consisted of angry men yelling at one another, barking orders and being crude. There were young children in the audience who were subjected to...continued

ALL Actors were fantastic - Story is great-
Too many F words... way too more than entire f-words I heard in my 54 years of my life
Amplifier toward the end of the show was way too noisy that I had to close my ears.
I liked the scene of switching...continued

An inch deep and a mile wide. The acting in this production was quite good, unfotunately, it could not overcome the play, itself, which took a very shallow view of the Iraq war experience. We left with no new insight, no connection to the...

I have gone to a few performances with Goldstar my only complaint is that the seats have been in the "nose bleed" sections.

Powerful play about The Iraq war. Great to see it from a non American point of view.

While the show is probably accurate in its gritty portrayal of a Scottish soldier's life in Iraq and the difficulty former soldiers would have re-adapting to life back at home, it generally falls more into the category of education or propaganda...continued

A riveting performance incorporating drama, comedy, video, music, dance, and - in one insanely inspired section: fashion show (mixed with military history). This was my second trip to see the show - and it retained its power on repeat viewing. The...

We liked the show. Loved seeing it in the Amory. Great location for this type of show. You can see from anywhere so don't worry if you are in the back or on the side. We did not feel this was a problem to see or hear the production. Yes it is hard...continued
