I see lots of theatre--and we both thought this was EXCELLENT!!!

GO SEE IT---I've told several friends about it--so if I liked it this much, it IS good!
Well acted, funny, thoughtful--and based on a true story of love and their relationship!!!

Beautifully written and executed work that brings the audience back to simpler times, with a touching message on cultural differences that love can transcend.

This is a memorable theatre experience not to be missed. Warm, funny, true to life and so well acted. All are to be congratulated. Most of all the writing is outstanding.

This was an excellent play. The actors were phemonal and the story was very well written. It evoked a lot of emotion and painted the time and era well. The time flew by because you were so absorbed in the play. It was absolutely wonderful. ...continued

We walked out - it was pretty amateurish.

We enjoyed the show. Worth it to attend performances in our local theater and support their efforts.
We hope to attend other events at this venue.
