This was a rich evening at the theater. Bravo to the actors, who convincingly transformed themselves into the two remarkable centenarians. Beautiful, seamless direction by Chuck Smith. The set design was perfect, too.

Totally enjoyed this event. The journey of the sisters' lives through their eyes was awesome. The portrayal of the actresses and as if they were talking with the audience was great. The best experience was the price through Goldstar. Just wonderful!
