I was very disappointed in this original piece. I almost left at intermission but thought that the second half might be better...it wasn't. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

This was a lot of fun. Don is very entertaining. Most of the stories are very funny. His facial expressions and impressions are wonderful. It is still a work in progress but I am pretty certain it will be just as good as East 14th street or...continued

It's still a little rough (6/22/2013) in preview but it has all the ingredients to make it a five star show.

Don Reed just may be a performing genius - he can dance, act, sing, do impressions, make crazy faces and write. Sadly, he cannot edit. Hence the 4 instead of 5 star rating. The show is too long. When intermission came at the hour mark, I'd had...continued

Good show with the very energetic Don Reed. This is the 3rd show that I've seen of his.
Although his shows are very good, they follow a similar pattern, so I wasn't as enamored of this one as much as the others.

You might feel differently than I...continued

Don Reed is the bomb! He is unbelievably talented and such fun to watch. After seeing all of his three plays about his life growing up in Oakland, I feel as if I would recognize his family members, his friends from childhood and the woman to...continued

Great show...I liked 14th St. Better maybe because it had been edited. This needs some editing.

This is the second time that my husband and I saw Don Reed perform. He does not disappoint, great entertainer, wonderful human being. Very relevant, compassionate and real. I do however, prefer the Berkeley Marsh venue as I find the SF Marsh to...continued

Engaging, enjoyable, informative and genuinely moving. He's a talented performer who opens his heart and brings you in. Plenty of laughs and some very tender and tough moments.

Most hilarious show of all time! I saw his original show 3 years ago and returned for an equally hilarious new show. This is a must-see! It's both touching and so funny you will be doubled over laughing.
