Fabulous acting and production. Loved intimacy of the small theater as well and the Cuban music that was played was wonderful.

This play was interesting and the cast did well overall. There seemed to be some overacting yet that was probably intentional. I enjoyed Miss Lucy the most. Wish the father did not yell soooo loud. He needs to tone down the volume a bit in...continued

SUPERB...SPLENDID...PAR EXCELLENCE
This is one of the best performances I have ever seen in the Bay Area. The acting was top notch from every cast member. The story was riveting. A 5-Star event!

I was quite impressed! I go to theater 2 or 3 times a month, so I'm rather discerning. The caliber of acting in this production is high. In fact, the acting is almost uniformly excellent across the board of this large-cast production. Hats off to...continued

The performance of SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH was astounding virtuosity with insight, emotional invention and scaldingly honest. The entire company was amazing but I must stand to applaud the leads, Fagan and Butterfield. You were unforgettable. ...continued

Actors were professional - much dialog and no mishaps. Play is very dated - and very long.

Fabulous acting in a poingnant play which gripped my companions and I from beginning to end (and it is long). The cast could not have been better. Loved the Boss.

It was great on every level. It is so great to have such serious theater here in San Francisco!

Such a powerful play needed powerful performances, and this event delivered. All the actors were phenomenal, but especially Fontana Butterfield and Dan Fagan. I went there with a friend and we all had such a great time, really got invested into...continued

I was not familiar with this Tennessee Williams play, and did enjoy the story. Some of the acting was really good, particularly Shannon Warrick (as Ms Lucie). The second act was very good. But the first and third acts, which focused on the leads,...continued

What a cast! For such a small theater, this was a first class and very large production. The performances were riveting and powerful, especially Boss and Tom Finley and Miss Lucy. It was long, 2hrs 45 mins, with 2 intermissions, but every...continued

Every character in this play is dysfunctional.... And all of that comes together in an incredibly well-crafted dramatic episode. There isn't a moments lag in this three-hour production. You can't help but wonder when the next bomb is going to...continued
