August Wilson's wonderful plays are not performed nearly enough. I had never seen Seven Guitars and was ecstatic at the prospect of having a chance to get closer to viewing the complete cycle. It was an exhilarating performance! Do not miss it.

Wonderful and talented cast!! Thanks to the Long Beach Playhouse, I have now seen 7 of the 10 August Wilson plays. I would love to see Seven Guitars again and I highly recommend it to everyone especially those who are avid August Wilson fans.

Excellent production. The entire cast gave a stellar performance. August Wilson is a brilliant screenwriter. I am looking forward to seeing more stage plays at this caliber at the Long Beach Playhouse.

The actress who plays Louise is the strongest actor in the cast. Guy who plays Floyd is also good. Set is adequate & a truly entertaining evening. This prod has a really long running time. This is NOT one of my favorites in the 10-play series. I...continued

WARNING: PLAY IS 2 hours & 45 mins, plus 15 min intermission. Good acting, nice production value and free parking behind the theater. Pacing dragged on a lot which I believe could have chopped off 45 minutes of the play. Some nice moments. ...continued

The actors were very good, however, I had a hard time hearing them much of the time. I think a lot had to do with stage and seating layout, I was in the C section. I nodded off because I was not engaged due partly I'm sure because their backs were...continued

It was dramatic and moving. You started on time. It was long so we appreciated a short intermission.
Thank you for hosting it.

August Wilson is one of the finest writers of the 20th century. He is a realist and symbolist par excellence, full of idealism yet realism, much like Tennessee Williams. He has the power to lace ugly reality with the silver threads of hope and...continued

Had just an Ok experience. The tickets were bought on August Wilson’s name alone; brilliant playwright. Other than that, everything was LuKE WaRm. The reception area and the people who worked at the venue weren’t inviting. The production was 2...continued

I loved the play! The actors were incredible. The plot of the story was a little confusing at first, but I did catch on. I didn’t realize who died until I read the introduction. My only complaint was it was too cold in the building. Next time I’ll...continued

This show was excellently directed, staged and performed. It was tense, funny, thrilling and surprising at the same time. I loved it
