This is one hell-of-a laugh riot, with delightful and appropriately outrageous performances -- two of three actors delicious in drag -- that give the hilarious play precisely the right energy. Actors are outstanding in recreating the "feud"...continued

Very funny. The two guys did dead-on impersonations of Bette Davis
and Joan Crawford and the dialogue was wonderfully bitchy. Loved
the film montage at the beginning. Fun evening.

Although it could have been bitchier, it was a whole lot of fun and you will laugh a lot. Well worth the ticket price.

GREAT show. Although a bit rough in spots, the physicality of the actresses is fantastic! We would see this again, and plan to!!! The voice impersonation of the Miss Davis character is spot on and we loved the San Antonio drawl of the Miss...continued

The acting was superb, especially the actress who played Hedda Hopper. The insertions of atual film clips of Davis and Crawford were cleverly done, especially the beginning clips that gave rise to the title of the play. There was great humor...continued

Overall, this was a most enjoyable show. VERY funny. Loaded with wit, sharp barbs, and great inside stories on Hollywood, and in particular - Joan & Bette. The acting was uniformly excellent and the direction very sharp. The show was fast paced...continued

I have always been a big fan of Davis and know all of her work. Stephen Foster's Bette shows us fierce passion and brilliant timing and is drop dead perfect bedecked with cigarette, wig and gown. It was good to have Bette back among us. Thanks...continued

VERY SIMPLE PRODUCTION WAS A DELIGHT TO WATCH.....EACH OF 3 ACTORS GAVE A STRONG PERFORMANCE OF THEIR CHARACTERS. THEATER SEATING WAS COMFORTABLE.

All 3 actors were great. Men played Joan Crawford & Bette Davis and they had their speech and mannerisms down pat! Hilarious! Loved it. I'm still laughing remembering some of the lines.

Theatre has a wireless cafe/bar you can hang out in before...continued

The Macha Theatre marquee announces: Davis and Crawford in person! YOU WILL HAVE A FABULOUS EVENING. The two-act play moves swiftly and the campy jokes are hilarious. The excellent actors effectively inhabit the characters and you will find...continued

It's a small theater. Given the limitations, it was a great performance by ALL 3 actors! The wit and dialogue were superbly delivered. My skeptical husband was dragging his feet but was thoroughly impressed by the end of it. Yes, we would...continued

This show was hilarious! The acting was appropriately over-the-top; all 3 of the actors put their hearts and souls into their performances. The dialogue was fast-paced and witty. It was great to re-visit the legend of Bette and Joan in this new...continued
