This is one the best plays we have ever seen in the last several years. Amazingly well casted. The two main characters are truly believable as yourg lovers. The guy playing Dmitri is a strong actor. The Italian mom is so classically Italian...continued

We all enjoyed this play very much and were so glad that we decided to see it amongst all the choices on the GOLDSTAR list. It was well acted and was a mix of humour and sadness. The fact that we happened to meet the writer at the end of the...continued

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!

We enjoyed the show. Worth it to attend performances in our local theater and support their efforts.
We hope to attend other events at this venue.

Play was funny. Just a little too like a soap opera with a contrived end. My seat was partially obstructed.

Beautifully written and executed work that brings the audience back to simpler times, with a touching message on cultural differences that love can transcend.

This was an excellent play. The actors were phemonal and the story was very well written. It evoked a lot of emotion and painted the time and era well. The time flew by because you were so absorbed in the play. It was absolutely wonderful. ...continued

It was okay, but not great. I can't say I would recommend but not a complete waste of time either. The female lead kind of ruined it for me. My husband was totally disengaged throughout.

Very heartfelt play that was very entertaining. The actors were excellent and both me and my boyfriend enjoyed the show. A very nice evening out and recommend going to see the show. It was a beautiful story.

Very touching love story of old world values meeting new world reality.
Excellent acting. The flow could use some tighten up, plus a few more stage sets. Overall its a well done production, well worth seeing.
