The show put me in early Hollywood this is good - Lina Hall (Hellsvist) as Greta Garbo was a standout and made the show worthwhile with her Garbo poise and stoic humor -GREAT! --direction very good - 2nd act was on a slippery slope -- cliche minor characters except for Isadora Duncan -tinker-bell- actress dancer - -- the actress playing The Cuban Lover lead role was not a bad actress but could have been more alluring and dynamic - couldn't figure out why all these women were so much in love with her

This play was based on historic fact and had an interesting subject. Unfortunately it was so poorly written and acted that my friend and I laughed all the way back to Pasadena. We felt like we were watching a junior high production.
Quotes & Highlights

_"_Nanin knows de Acosta from the inside out, and so her direction… and acting are sublime. There’s hardly a false move, as the piece moves swiftly from studio office to salon to lake to Hollywood manse." -broadwayworld.com
