Incredible. It was like sitting and watching the snapshot of day in the life of any regular family during the holidays. It always goes sideways and ends badly. But unlike so many dramas where families yell at each other and make up "drama" to...continued

An amazing cast performs this award-winning play. Easily some of the best acting I've seen locally this year.

There's just no one like Matthew Bourne! Who ever would have thought that Cinderella and WWII London would be a perfect fit? A visual feast, clever, funny, touching - just gorgeous. Go!

This is great theater: timeless, relevant, hopeful, political, intelligent, heartbreaking, sly, sad, earnest, searching, willful, passionate, powerful. The best kind of art is this kind of soulful.

A dream cast of amazing talent working the stage with truly inventive scenic design to tell a story about love and family and home that covers the full range of humanity: from first love to painful goodbyes. This is a rarely staged musical, maybe...continued

Go see The Play That Goes Wrong at the Ahmanson Theatre... it is absolutely brilliant! It would’ve made Chaplin very proud and rolling on the floor laughing.
It’s non-stop laughter, absolute genius.
I couldn’t stop scream-laughing. A must...continued

Brilliant, painful and very funny. A most human and wrenching love story. Beckett's work resonates with love and anguish for human loneliness. Winnie, played by Dianne Wiest is simply breathtaking in her joyous mesmerizing and wonderfully comedic...continued

As usual the staging and the acting were fine. But the play is truly horrible. Don't waste your time and money!

I loved the staging and the dancing. However, the music was played at an exaggerated volume which spoiled the whole experience.

This is an excellent play about the working class, their trials and tribulations. It deals with problems and issues that are relevant to us today. The acting is exceptional.

My second night seeing this at The Ahmanson. I saw it and then immediately bought another ticket. I wanted another chance to see this knowing how it all plays out. SO much goes on! The play itself is written in a conversational style that makes...continued

A little long for what the play had to offer, but it was well acted and left you something to talk about.

I was told this was The Black Mean Girls. Thank goodness it was only 75min because it was just a lot of yelling and being really bitchy. Mean Girls is about subtle. This isn't subtle. This is hit you over the head with an agenda. The acting was...continued

As a Cohen Bro fan I feel this, like their films, may need multiple viewings for true appreciation? I enjoyed this string of vignettes but I also had moments of pure boredom where I would look around and the audience would be asleep or looking...continued

This play sounded like it had the ingredients to be great. Teatro Camposino's famed, "Zoot Suit" graced the Taper's stage so many years ago, and this time out, they certainly didn't disappoint, bringing this epic and tragic tale to fruition. This...continued

It seems to me that most people in the theater were laughing heartily, but my wife and I were not among them.
I'm a fan of slapstick and like silly British humor, but I found this play tiresome. They make the same joke over and over and over...continued

Dominique Morisseau's book made this a better than average show of its type. Of course, everyone involved had great material with The Temptations' songbook. The audience was very enthusiastic. A very enjoyable evening.
