My first and not my last to the Reps' Playground. The experience of the many short pieces during the Holidays was especially fun.

A surprisingly entertaining evening. We did not understand why some of the plays seemed to be on topic while others were not, and some were definitely better than others, but we will go again.

This was a very entertaining and enjoyable event. It was fun to see six different short plays, and to see how each incorporated music (a song) into the script. The acting (scripts in hand) was very good.

Amazing! 6 different short plays on a loose theme, and all sharp, moving, funny, inventive, masterfully performed - this was our first time, and we'll be back and back again. A terrific night (and 90 minutes, which is good for the working folk). ...continued

I am reluctant to be honest here as the house is packed as it is, but in the interest of good karma, and not being a selfish ho, not that there's anything wrong with selfish hos, this place rocks. It is a wonderful way to spend a Monday evening....continued
