How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Matt and Ben is a unique parody, almost a fantasy like tale, of Matt D. and Ben A. There was a group of 8 (2+6) of us; many commented that it was "different" but entertaining. Everyone loved the chaotic ending while the beginning was a bit slow. The writing is certainly clever; the acting is even sharper. Watching 2 women portray these 2 now male movie stars is comical and weird. However, the actresses were superb; Marianna Bassham is a multitalented entertainer who can morph into almost anyone - including Ben Affleck, in this case. Watching her mannerisms, speech, posture was wonderful. The fact that "Gwyneth Paltrow" and "JD Salinger" suddenly appear made the evening even a more insightful and pointed satire of Show Biz. Very Well Done.

Help others enjoy a great night out

We ate down the street at MIracle in Science Cafe; interesting, delicious, and fun.
