4 thumbs up. You could (and should) take your mom to this show! Funny, touching, realistic, entertaining. Not a life-changing experience, but a very pleasant evening. Being based on a true story makes it all the more touching.

Absolutely wonderful. Not to be missed if you want to see what true love looks like, shining from the eyes of a human being. This is a winner in every way. Great venue, too. Save the Santa Monica Playhouse!

It was cute. The acting was good. It wasn't great but not bad either. I enjoyed it.

Quotes & Highlights

“A cast of extremely fine actors bring so much life into the characters. Dialects are absolutely perfect. Costumes by Ashley Hayes are wonderful as they always are in all productions at the Santa Monica Playhouse. Visca has written a wonderful tribute to her parents, and the production is one you should not miss.”
“A warm-hearted romance … possesses an engagingly old-fashioned mood that feels as timeless as romance itself.” —LA Weekly
“It will surely please those who have been in love for a long, long time.”-_Santa Monica Daily Press _
