YUM! What a deliciously wonderful show. I loved pretty much everything about this production especially the incredible casting. The actors were very believable and kept me on the edge of my seat for most of the almost 3 hours.

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

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

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

Overly long and wordy, difficult to sit through. 3 acts, 2 intermissions. Even
the fantastic Tennessee was probably drinking when he wrote this. The
actors did their best, however, and the theater is intimate, the staff friendly.

Open seating presented no problems, most seats are good. Play was 3 hours long, but surprisingly after first act seemed to move very well. Acting was superb, but because of realistic portrayal some scenes were almost too vivid. I thought it was...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!

This play is typical of Tennessee Williams in portraying a bleak human landscape with down-and-out characters. From the start, you know the story won't end well. He gives us some truly low-life characters. That said, this play has more humor and...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

glad to finally see this rarely produced play be a master. The supporting cast was largely excellent. the two leads have a Herculean task to bring these roles off. The Contess DelLago, very difficult to make sypathetic to a modern audience. ...continued

Great show! Another wonderful play by Tennessee Williams, filled with emotion, flawed characters, and some comedy.

Intense dialogue, handled very well by the actors. Highly recommended. It's long, almost 3 hours, with 2 intermissions, but did...continued

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

This is a wonderful production of a powerful, compelling Tennessee Williams play. Williams explores the loss of innocence as well as fading youth. The plot is somewhat lurid, but the outrageousness keeps it interesting and the acting is, for the...continued
