Well cast, excellent performances by all actors. We've seen this play a number of times and - while we do remember 'who did it' - we still have to listen carefully to the clues to figure it out... go see it!

This was one of the poorer performances I have attended at Desert Stages over the years. Maybe I am just getting spoiled by the classics in Mesa. The plot was shallow, and the performance not all that enjoyable, especially since much of the...continued

Had my tickets about three weeks in advance and couldn't wait for the performance. Knew the plot from the movie, but this cast provided plenty of suspense. Matt Newhard combined charm and creepiness inhis portrayal of scheming Wendice. His and...continued

Very enjoyable show. I would definitely recommend to others. Great script, solid acting, intimate theater, and a great way to enjoy a show before having dinner in Old Town. Tip: Seating is open, and I'd recommend sitting in the middle or the left...continued

The play was delightful! The cast did a marvelous job of keeping you guessing with twists and turns of plot. Every seat is a good one in this intimate theater. You feel like you are visiting the set in their living room. Really enjoyed it!
