Review from Mo in Chicago

I'm a tough critic, so 5 stars is unusual for me. But this piece was amazing!! Acting was spot on! Set Design was interesting. Lighting was well. Great Job Stage Left!!!!!

I really liked the show. The performances were great. "Steve" was a real stand-out for me. I'll definitely see more shows at Wit.
