Set in the time of my birth, it brought back many memories. The staging was interesting, the actors were authentic and Pickles is a star.

I absolutely loved it. The play far and away exceeding my expectations, as they always do at the Laguna Playhouse.

This was my second time to see this play that really touched me. I grew up during these years and had a grandmother that looked like Sook with more layers of clothes on all the time and a dear great aunt that lived next door and acted more like...continued

This is a gem of a show….I hope it is done somewhere in the Los Angeles area EVERY YEAR.

Very sweet play. The woman who played Sook was such a good actress. Her facial expressions spoke volumes. We were supposed to have side orchestra seats, but we ended up in the orchestra, dead center, only 4 rows back from the stage. The theatre...continued

Play was lovely but the sound could have been better. It was difficult to hear some of the dialogue and singing. We thought the acting was wonderful, Act 1 was a little slow but loved Act 2. Keep up the great work in Laguna Beach.

The story was simple yet wonderfully emotional. Highly recommend if you enjoy the simple/ fun things in life. Song lyrics were great.

Great seats in a very nice venue. This play was well acted and performed. The music was wonderful. Provided insight into the author Truman Capote's early years!

My husband and those seated around us seemed to really enjoy the play. I did not. The seats were great, the acting good (especially Sook and her brother), and the staging interesting. However, instead of the "heartwarming" holiday play...continued

seats were great...play was lousy. We left at the intermission.

A lovely play, and very touching. The actors are wonderful, and the relationship between Buddy and Sook will steal your heart. The music is wonderful as well and seamlessly worked into the narrative.

If you are undecided about seeing this,...continued

We felt that the play was no better than a mediocre High School production and we left at intermission.

We wanted to get into holiday spirit. What a better way than go to a Christmas centered play. It didn't quite put us into the spirit of holidays. The play is kind of sad all the way through. The singing and acting were great!

Went with extended family--from age 9 to age 79. All enjoyed it thoroughly. A great story and a very talented cast. The woman who played Sook, in particular, did an amazing job of becoming that character. And, there were some very fine...continued
