The play had so many layers to it!! We thoroughly enjoyed the performance by all the actors. It was a treat to experience Glynn Turman again. Our seats were good as well. Also we didn't have to park on the other side and trek across the street to...continued

Review from Tina Gustin-Gurney

Fascinating work of August Wilson. Surprised it wasn't sold out. My group enjoyed the depth and the cast, yet were surprised that some actors flubbed lines frequently. Nonetheless, we all were moved by this show.
