Review from Little Nacho and Little Pea

It was quite good ... I would say top 3 plays I've seen at Steppenwolf (I'd give it 4.5 stars if I had a choice). Typically the subject this play covers is very one-sided and characters do not reflect the social strata they are in, but I thought...continued

Review from Robert Rosenfeld

What a wonderful production: acting, sets, directimg, theme.

Review from RMB

The story/plot/structure/point of the play were very clear, perhaps too much so, a bit too simple and didactic. But the play was interesting, funny, very well acted, good sets and costumes. This is not "the play of the decade", but it's...continued

Review from bcandy

Good acting, even though it was a drama it was funny and heartwarming in places. It spoke to important issues of class in America. The seats we got through goldstar were excellent.

This play will be a huge success in Chicago. The script is crisp, sometimes funny, sometimes tragic and the acting is superb. Highly recommended

Review from Havanai

With humor, tension, and good writing this play deals with questions surrounding whether luck or effort determine one's success. It's also timely in this era of the shrinking middle class, in which one is either a "have" or a "have not". The...continued

Review from Wunderwoman

I wanted to see this performance because it was so highly recommended by friends who had seen it. I was blown away by the acting - not just the star but the entire cast. The play was well-written and extremely thought-provoking.
