Review from anonymous

Very high-quality production with a storyline that held my interest and raised interesting ethical questions to ponder. The actors for the most part were very believable, especially the two lawyers and the defendant. The jury involvement, while a...continued

Review from Kenyon Brown

Uneven acting and writing, but the good stuff is really good. Unfortunately, the lead actress was one of the weakest links. Both she and her dialogue seemed very stiff and forced. The two opposing attorneys were quite strong actors (especially...continued

Review from Marcy G.

Nice little theatre! The play was interesting. The two lead attorneys
were terrific. Thought all of the other actors were over the top and
were indicating like crazy and not in the moment. Had some problems
with the direction, but really like...continued

Loved the premise and the engaging topic. The prosecuting attorney was the standout for me, his performance was excellent. The "American Gigolo" look-a-like defender seemed to stumble several times with his lines, but lovely eye candy. The...continued

Review from Bennett

The play was fantastic. It had a very unique premise, was thought provoking throughout, and kept your attention through all the witnesses, closing arguments, and the final verdict. All actors were great in their roles, and it was interesting to...continued

well written, well acted, riveting and timely play! No day-dreaming during this performance. Audience participation adds to the fun.
This is as must see.

Review from Dennis

I don't know which was worse, the script or the acting. The prosecutor was so bad he was almost laughable. Only two actors, the defense atty and the hospital assistant, should be allowed on a stage.

Review from Will Ahrens

Interesting intellectual, moral discussion. Not so good as theatre. A lot of melodrama in the writing, acting and directing.

Review from Lilimy

This play is worth seeing and the acting was very good by all of the cast. Be prepared to stay in your seat until the 15 minute break as it is a court room scene. Interesting and definitely worth the Goldstar ticket

Review from Lori G.

The acting was wonderful. How DO they remember all those lines??? Some members of the audience are chosen to decide the verdict. The theater is small and intimate and set up in a square, so no matter where you sit you get a birds-eye view. The...continued

Review from Leon J. Alexander

Our party found it delightful. An interesting scientific problem presented in a criminal trial. Story and theories emerged as the witnesses each gave their own ideas. Managed to have action and movement, even though limited by court format. Great...continued

This is an engaging show with a very interesting cadre of characters and a wonderfully unique ending! I like stories where I'm asked to suspend moral judgment until the whole truth is unveiled, and this piece from writers Art Shulman and Rober...continued

Review from Taun Nimmo

A stimulating play that challenges its audience and dares to confront the touchy subject of cryonics which will someday be more than mere science fiction. Presented in the round it's a show that draws the audience into a very interesting court...continued

Review from juliajames1001

An interesting topic, with fairly balanced opposing POVs, which made the story watchable. I found myself jumping from one side to the other, so the playwright did his job in that respect. The directing choices were very odd at times, and the...continued

Review from Barry

Rebecca's Gamble offers up the intriguing topic of cryogenics and uses a courtroom to explore its theory, practice, moral and religious implications. There's a little too much testimony at times but the cast does an excellent job presenting the...continued
