I had seen the movie in the 90's and loved it. I wasn't sure how it would be seeing it live on stage but I have to say that the acting was superb!!! I just might see it again!

This play was the best written and acted play I have seen since moving to LA in 2003; and this includes performances at much larger venues. No, I do not have a personal relationship with anyone involved, but I have to say: See this!

Having recently seen Bronx Tale (by the same author) I was very hopeful about the quality of the writing. I was not at all disappointed..it was "real", brisk, entertaining and thought provoking. Also found the performance level (at this...continued

This play was both funny and touching, with an extremely talented and professional cast. John Collela and Reamy Hall both had great comedic timing. My only complaint was that I wanted to go see the show again, but discovered that I attended on...continued

Really really great performances all around. It comes alive in the second act when Jim Roof walks on stage. I hated the movie and was surprised how much I loved this play!

Excellent acting in a story by Chazz Palminteri featuring cleaver twists and turns, which keep in you the moment not knowing what is going to happen next. Too bad the play has finished, but you can see on video.

Acting was excellent, and the first part was much more enjoyable than second part. It seemd to me that the writter in the second part do not know how to finish the play and a little confused and rush to finish in anyway.
