Great set! Great cast! Great adaptation! I'm excited to see that quality productions like that are being staged for kids. I would definitely see another play at the La Mirada Theater.

Wonderful play. Great actors! One of the leading actors kept forgetting/messing up his lines. Other than that, the play really draws you in emotionally.
