The actors were amazing, truly enjoyable. The storyline left one feeling like perhaps there's some kind of mystery about our own lives. Just a perfect experience

Nicely acted, but the story line didn't really put me into another dimension or world or universe in the character's quest for "other". Not enough fantasy or adventures through the casts landing in a parallel world if you will.

First, the play was smart, snappy, and funny.

Really a wonderful outing.
