I really like this theatre and am never disappointed by their excellent work. This was well worth seeing and my guest (an actress), who had seen the original cast with Malkovich on Broadway said that they delivered fine performance, while...continued

A top-notch performance--I would rate it 5 stars! The trip to Santa Monica from the valley was easy, there is ample free parking at the theatre, the seats are very comfortable. The acting was excellent--we happened to go on a day when 2...continued

What an enjoyable evening! This is the 3rd show I have seen at the Ruskin, and I love the intimacy of the theater, you feel like you are part of the show. Anna was played by Alexis Boozer, and she was just fantastic, as was Aaron Misakian as...continued

Good acting, expecially the gay character who really held this play together. I feel the excessive use of 4-letter words unnecessary especially the "f" word. Believe it or not it's actually possible to express anger using a more varied...continued

The Ruskin is a wonderful place to see anything, but they often present better plays than this one.

I thought the acting was generally ok, although I, also, was a bit weary with seeing yet another flaming-gay portrayal presented as if it were...continued

My husband and I went to a Sunday matinee show and had a nice time. Very casual atmosphere, but professional and friendly. Our performance of Anna was played by the understudy and she really didn't fit the character like the rest of the cast. I am...continued

The Ruskin Group Theatre Co. chooses the best plays, and the best actors to perform in them. This is the way theatre was meant to be, intimate and enveloping.

I give Burn This, 4 out of 4 stars however, I do not think the stars are cooperating.

The venue is great - very intimate... You are practically on the stage with the actors. Good story - intense performances. A quality production at and good value.

Excellent play and outstanding acting. This is the second show I've seen at this small, casual venue. Both times have been winners. I highly recommend going.

I thought this play was fantastic. The theater was really small, which added to the experience. Every guest was in either the first or second row (seats are in an L around the stage). At points during the show, I felt like a "fly on the wall"...continued

The best acting I have seen onstage in a long time. Dominic Comperatore is the best thing on an LA Stage! Complete and total brilliance. Alexis Boozer brings Anna to life. Gavin Alexander was so understated and simple that a new level of...continued

The play was a decent outing for the price. The play itself was intelligently written. As an African American I could have done without the use of the word "n*gga" in the script. Seemed as if the entire audience (which was not African American)...continued

Good play, well directed, decently acted. Intimate quaint theater with friendly staff. Loved the fast talking character of "Pale". Overall a good time. And yet again, cheaper than a movie! Another hit for the Ruskin.

I did not really enjoy it too much ---it was somewhat too long and most of the time I could not hear the dialog ---I was sitting in front row . The acting was not that great --with the exception of the one guy that was ranting and raving --and...continued
