I enjoyed the actors and the acting very much. The cast is so talented, and the play held my interest.

Good adaption of the movie starring Daniel Day Lewis. All of the characters gave good performances, especially Javi Harnly as Omar and his lover, Robert Rushin as Johnny. Definitely worth seeing for gays and straights alike.

The girl was quite good but I found the rest of the acting to be very amateurish and timing was off, particularly by the Indian lead. Left at intermission.

A very well acted and interesting play. This is an intimate portrait of two young men from different cultures, the interaction of one family, and the quest to succeed. I had not seen the original movie it was based on so this is all new to me. My...continued

The staging was dull and unoriginal. The presentation of the plot was disappointing; the ending was abrupt, and w/o resolve, after a very long (overacted) attempt at character development. But a good, believable performance of the tall, blonde...continued

The performers in this play are nothing short of amazing! All the characters were fascinating and I enjoyed seeing so many talented people make the story come alive as best they could.
The script is not all that. Its lack of dynamics made the...continued

All the actors are perfect fits for their roles. Drama and comedy take turns in moving the action, and the time passed so engagingly that I was truly surprised when the lights came up and the cast assembled to take their bows ... I was ready for...continued

** Highly Recommend ** - All of the characters seemed so real - they did an amazing job portraying some classic stereotypical personalities. It was also lesson in culturally-specific family dynamics and sexism. Keith Stevenson who plays Nasser...continued

Terrific production. Six of the seven actors gave OUTSTANDING performances. I wasn't familiar with the story (and have never seen the film) so the material was very fresh/new for me. Good job NCTC!

Fantastic cast. Lousy set. Not sure I got the big picture to the story...I had thought it was supposed to be a gay love story in the homophobic 80s, which was there but only as one speck of a lot of other stories involving the other characters....continued
