Review from Maurizio Franzini

First of all, we were given seats at orchestra level, instead of mezzanine, which would have been fine had they not been on the far side.
The performance was fine in the first act, but it lost steam and momentum in the more dramatic second half....continued

Some strong acting work by Barricelli ,the lead female character, and others - a very rewarding night at the theatre. Recommended!

Review from Gil Gilfix

Really enjoyed the play. Acting was superb and story was interesting. We were surprised when the tix I purchased (loge) were upgraded to orchestra..and were really good! Thought maybe because it wasn't a full house...but it was! All up, a...continued

Review from Ginny

ACT generally provides a more satisfying experience. This play was not one I would suggest people go out of their way to experience. It as OK but not nearly as powerful as Major Barbara.

Review from Kim W.

The premise of the play was interesting. I never really gave it much thought to the point of view of Italian residents during WW2. The acting was terrific except I had a hard time hearing some of the actors way up in the balcony. It's not the best...continued

Review from annfelldin

The show was very well acted and the characters were completely believable. Brought me back to my childhood growing up in an Italian family. ACT is a great venue and the article in their playbill helped to understand the background of the play....continued

Review from Karla Valenzuela

It was a wonderful show! I highly recommend it! The Italian lines were pronounced properly and the gestures reminded me of family.

Review from AL

Acting was a little amateurish. They couldn't project a good Italian accent.

Review from Giorgio Lagna

Despite the valiant effort by the wonderful cast, it turns out it is incredibly hard to translate De Filippo's iconic Neapolitan dialect into English. The gestures, the interjections, the words half-spoken that endear the characters to the...continued

Review from Nancy Stern

The play was well done and well acted. I think they got the dynamics of many Italian families.

Review from Goldstar Member

The service was fine with Goldstar and the seats were very fine. Unfortunately we found the play lacking in verve and quality. We've seen many excellent productions at ACT so this was just not up to par.

Review from virginia persson

Computers went down that day so seating was complicated. Staff worked hard to right this. We wound up with open seating in balcony, some groups went ahead of us as with another system. Play had to start late but everything worked out fine.

Review from Persie Nacks

The first act was more like what I was expecting - a little humour, a little drama and some action but the second act dragged a little. The Italian accents of the cast were all over the map for playing people that live in the same neighbourhood -...continued
