Magnificent idea. Good execution. I had been anticipating this play since it was announced at a performance of The Vortex last summer. The Benjamin Bunny design of the play must be told the audience in advance, which it was.

The play was fabulous. The writing was wonderful and much better then we even anticipated. It was such an unusual topic for this day and age and it was performed so well, with great stage sets and costuming.

Actors did a good job, except for the part of Zelda--way over the top. Couldn't empathized with her. She was shrill and screamed a lot--don't know if it was the direction, but I don't think she "got it" about Zelda's illness. Characterization...continued

Well, I certainly can't remember the last time I've learned so much at the theater - went because I'm reading the new Zelda novel "Z," had no idea that Downton Abbey (one of my fav shows), was based on a Wharton novel or that Fitzgerald wrote The...continued

Patti Roeder stole the show playing an Edith Wharton, who knows full well she is past "her" moment in time, with a wink to the Jazz era's wild ways when at the end of the play she dashes the Vase to the floor as a symbol that her Belle Epoch is...continued

My friend and I enjoyed it very much. The staging was most interesting and reading the quotes and scenes from the past were well done.

Wonderful presentation of the Fitzgeralds, Henry James and Edith Wharton. Bravura performances by the cast, who are rollickingly funny. A total blast!

I was drawn to the play's subject: Edith Wharton and F. Scott Fitzgerald. "Edie and Fitz" presented some interesting facts on both subjects and Zelda Fitzgerald's portrayal was especially entertaining. The play is worth seeing.

The play was very interesting and very well acted. I liked the subject matter and all of the characters. The setting was spectacular, and so well used.

This is a lively play and had enough happening to hold my attention. Although not a comedy, there are many comic moments with excellent 'special effects' and a variety of characters. It might help the viewer if they have some passing familiarity...continued

I thought the play was great. The way TIME was used was very clever and the writing super. Set and use of visuals added a lot. The actors were top notch with special praise for "Grossie". May lead me to read some Edith Wharton.

Good timing with the much-awaited Baz Luhrman Gatsby hitting theatres. But Tea with Edie and Fitz is a mixed bag. The set is very well-done (with a clever rotating table to change scenes) and most of the costumes are exceptional. Both Patti...continued

I thought this play was very good. I'm am glad that they let us know about the timeline of the play as it might have been a little confusing. Acting was great, set was great, all in all I enjoyed it very much.

My three friends and I enjoyed the play very much and were able to connect with the characters as we are familiar with the writings of these authors. All the performers did a wonderful job and we enjoyed the theatre itself. It's small enough and...continued

Wonderful experience. The play was outstanding, and using Goldstar is painless. This was our second experience with Goldstar, and we hope to use this service more in the future.
