Bravo Theatre Works! Your productions just keep getting better and better!! 'Water by the Spoonful' is an excellent drama that keeps you engaged at every turn of the plot.

Amazing set and fabulous performances. The play was a bit over-sentimental in places, but overall it was a refreshing and modern take on contemporary life.

We saw 9 plays in Ashland on our trip in August, disappointed that "Water" was on hiatus. We were delighted to find it in Mt. View. It was worth the trek from Clayton--only an hour, despite a bit of early 49er traffic. This troupe produced a...continued

The acting was great...and I liked the staging. I think the script could be consolidated and the play could be more powerful. The first act requires motivation to stay focused...

Slow pacing. Characters unengaging...shows the problem with current electronic communication....it simply is not the same as real face to face. They did not seem "real" as people or believable as portrayed. Topic unattractive to me...former and...continued
