For the first time ever, a show at this theater (one of my favorite venues) just didn't do it for me. I almost left after the first act because I had absolutely no idea where the story was going and what it all about. The actor were okay...the...continued

Ticketing experience was easy. The show was fantastic! What a wonderful screenplay--insightful, creative, funny, emotionally true to the experiences of so many of us in the "homosexual" community. I especially appreciated the great performances...continued

It could have been better. Story is a bit confusing as it moves backwards and characters frequently mentioned in the beginning of the play don't appear until the second act. Relied too much on gratuitous "undressing." The actors are charming,...continued

The beginning is a bit rough and slow but the end is on spot and wraps it up nicely. The directing is kinda mediocre. I wish they sped up act 1- and cut atleast 15 min out of it-it drags through with some slow parts- i wish they would just puck up...continued

Great acting and staging. But the writing just wasn't tight enough to hold the story together.

In serious need of editing. Several scenes go on far too long. While the performances may be sincere, they are not very good.

This play had its moments -- but it desperately needed to be edited down to avoid often long stretches that contributed nothing. More fundamentally, while the reverse chronological ordering could have been intriguing, the character whose life...continued

Although the staging was uber-minalmistic, I still loved this play. Several of the actors, the woman who played "Tam" and the man who played "Peter" were out-standing. I laughed, I felt sad, elated, thoughtful, all emotions flashing like a...continued

this was the first play I saw at NCT where the set design was a huge disappointment. There was absolutely no thought given to the stage. Usually they do miracles with their limited stage space. This time...nothing. The actors and many of the lines...continued

Like many have written already, I felt one of the scenes dragged on for way too long (hospital) but overall I thought it was a terrific production. Well acted, minimal sets (that worked very well), funny, poignant. Definitely recommend! (Note:...continued

This play reminded me of a fun visit with other gay friends who were too busy being themselves to have time to pretend to be something they weren't. It had it's "misses." i.e, the hospital scene that was 2 or three times longer than it needed...continued

This was a very good play...with just a few first act monolouges that went a bit too long...however the second act really picks up and it was a great night of theater. This show has a very talented perfect cast.

Besides my husband I had recommended this play to two other people who attended. While this was the third night of the "preview", we all thought the play had an engaging story and was well acted. We did all observe that the scene with Michael and...continued

This is one of the finest shows I've seen in San Francisco! Wonderful work from the entire company. For me, some of the stand out moments came from Matt Weimer and Gabriel Ross. Catch the final performance if you can!

Compelling but flawed script. I didn't get it immediately that we were going back in time. Acting props go to the very funny Matt Weimer and Scott Cox for making the most of an underwritten role. Impossibly sexy awards go to Daniel Redmond and...continued
