The plot was somewhat boring, but the direction and cast was anything but. This production is intriguing with the use of mixed media and the cast is very talented. They each play multiple roles and yet I almost didn't recognize them. I often found...continued

An amazing, surprising show. Never a dull moment. It's a best thing we've seen all year. YOu won't want to miss this one! The show starts in the lobby with the band that's playing there. Don't ignore them.; take a close look.

The Wallis is a...continued

Dreadful. How to take a perfect movie and ruin it. The most overhyped show since Peter and the Starcatcher. What were these people thinking? Comedy numbers for very minor characters who took over the production. You couldn't care about the two...continued

This is a simple story but stunningly told. The cast was great and the theatrics of the production were amazingly beautiful.

The show was excellent. I am only sorry we waited until the last day to see it. I would have been telling my friends. The staging may have been the best I have ever seen. Very clever. wonderful!!

I liked the presentation very much...very original. The new Annenberg Theatre is amazing. There isn't a bad seat in the theatre. It's just beautiful. However, I would like to know the significance of the flags.

Marvelous! The presentation cleverly mixes the Noel Coward scripts for "Still Life" and "Brief Encounter" with his songs. Th sophisticated ingenuous staging mixes music, film and music in a fresh and engaging way. This is the kind of theater...continued

Seats in the newly opened Wallis Annenberg Cultural Center aren't cheap! Thank goodness some of their tickets are available through Goldstar. I saw quite a few empty seats at last night's performance so apparently it must benefit the Wallis to...continued

The play was very difficult to follow. and the story line as executed made little or no sense. The musicians were the highlight.
