The actors were so compelling that they really made you feel that they were who they were portraying -- not just actors playing the characters. Very powerful, very poignant, very well done. I didn't want it to be over. I wanted to stay for the...continued

Two great performances by two fine actors made it worthwhile spending two hours with two needy, damaged, and somewhat unbearable characters.

Excellent writing, excellent acting, very enjoyable. The actors put their heart & soul into this one - the Ruskin Group has never disappointed me yet.

The play works as both as a character study and well written story. It was so well acted that I drawn into the story. I almost brought a pre-teen and was glad I didn't, as this was very adult themed.

I saw this play in NYC with Edie Falco & John Petrucci and was entranced, so I had a pretty high bar. Bottom line, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it again and was glad I went. I thought "Johnny" did a very good job with the part; "Frankie" fell a...continued

This is a splendid production, much more effective in the small room than in a Broadway-size theatre. Both of the actors are terrific playing damaged characters, which is so hard given that they are 10 feet away from the audience. I think Ashley...continued

The girl was simply wonderful. Sounded and acted just like the character she was playing. Quite enjoyable show.

Love the Ruskin! Everything I have seen here has been good, and this was no exception. Acting was excellent, both actors were well cast. It is in the smaller venue across the strret from the main theater, but that makes for a more intimate...continued

In some ways reminiscent of O'Neill's "A Moon for the Misbegotten," this very fine play - featuring a moon, DeBussy and two brave and powerful performances! - is not even remotely dated from its 1988 debut. Love is still hard to find, especially...continued

Excellent acting & sets. Material was good, not great. The excessive nudity was totally unnecessary & I'm not a prude.

The play was very well acted by cast of 2 but in this tiny theatre with approx.30 people sitting less than 10ft away, we found the nude scenes unnecessary & would have felt more comfortable if the Director had given the actors pj's !

The acting in this interesting play would itself warrant a visit to this theater. Cris D'Annunzio, as Johnny, brilliantly plays the almost non-stop talker and romantic, but Ashley Love is superb as Frankie in the much more subtle role in which it...continued

This was the worst play that I have ever seen. The language was crude and vulgar and disgusting. I did not expect the complete nudity and it was very uncomfortable to watch. It was a very weird story. The other couple we were with hated it too....continued

It's a 2 hour, 2 person play that was very enjoyable. Every seat is a good seat and I really enjoyed it.
