A good first act was followed by a disappointingly poor second act. This story has been done before, e.g. in "Naming Names." Unfortunately, neither play has dealt very well with a very important historical time, namely the Hollywood Black List.

Play was so-so. Liked the actor Steve Fenton. Louie's character never changed the tone of his voice. Some funny lines.
