Loved it as always. This was my 5th or 6th time. I always introduce someone new to it. Looking forward to his new show in the fall.

This was my 4th time seeing Don's show. I absolutely love it! I just keep bringing friends to share it with. It is just as hilarious and touching each and every time. Don's ability to put himself totally into it and create it newly every night...continued

This was my fifth time and he never fails to entertain me. I'm always amazed at his ability to capture all those different characters, be hilarious and in the next moment move me to tears. I always bring someone new with me so I can also enjoy...continued

Actually, I give this 3.5 stars, just a tiny bit short of excellent.

It was a really good show, and Don Reed is very talented. He was able to re-create a number of distinct characters in his life, and he did it marvelously.

There were some...continued

Of course Don is great as everyone says. Maybe dragged out a little in 2nd act but the ending was truly both hearfelt and funny!

Marsh Berkeley's seating is all flat so it is hard to see from certain places, but that's not Don's fault!

It held our attention throughout and we were delighted about the multi disciplinary skills of Don Reed. You get comedy, dance and one of the best raconteurs around. He heightens awareness on a lot of subjects, but never preaches, which is one of...continued

I enjoyed the show very much. The MUSIC was fantastic and helped tell the story. I thought Mr. Reed's story was well told but could have used visual aids to flesh it out. I hope he continues to evolve the story because as he said, there was much...continued

Don Reed is a top artist, with amazing talents in acting, dancing, and delivery. More importantly, he is such a genuine person that you can't help but moved by his story. For an hour and half, everyone was glued to his/her seat, totally absorbed...continued

I guess this time I'm the odd man out. We had to leave at the intermission. I had heard and seen so much of these stories before in the classroom over many years that I just couldn't enjoy it.

This is a once in a lifetime theatrical experience. NOt only does Don have the acting ability to cover a range that is enormous but his heart is the biggest I have seen, no ego, pure love. It was almost a religious experience with a hug on our way...continued

Okay, I am probably going to write the longest review known to Don Reed, but here it is:

5 stars are not enough. I love live theatre. I am avid about the performing arts but this took me to a personal space.
First of all, I grew up in Idaho...continued

Great Show! A Must See! This is my third time seeing the show. Each time I see the show, I bring three other people with me. The music is 'off the hook'! When will the CD be available for purchase?

Don is brilliant! It was nonstop laughter, and there were folks in the audience I knew, so it was fun to laugh with them. It is a rather racy show, but that's just a caveat for young kids. It fit right in with the context, I do say. Great scenes...continued
