Great new work with both comedy and drama. The acting was strong. I liked that it made me think.

Good acting. Not over-acted. Good character development. Clever dialogue. Humorous as well.

My date and I both agree that this was not the best play that we've seen, but we had fun because we laughed at how bad it was during the entire play.

*About American Blues Theater

*In 1985, American Blues Theater’s Founding Ensemble members produced our inaugural world premiere about the working person’s struggle. Twenty-seven years later, we still find this subject timeless and poignant. You witness examples of the competition and anxiety in offices, homes, and farms throughout the United States. This fight plays out in stadiums and entertainment venues as well. You’ll root for your local artists season after season, applaud their merit and skill, and talk about critics’ fate-making judgments.
