We thought most of the acting was very good, especially that of "Irma".

A rather sensitive topic was well- handled.

I kept searching the program for stars after the cast names. I've rarely seen even Equity actors put in this good a performance. The fight scene was the only one that could have been more believable. I was riveted the whole time, when in many...

Addresses the problems and processes of the family in real and moving and not over-stated ways. Wonderfully cast as well. Really well done!

The subject matter, a sex change for a husband in mid-life, was unusual, and appeared not to appeal to a general audience, judging from a half -full theater on a Friday evening. The cast was strong. The wife was very believable in her reactions,...continued

Touching story about LOVE and how a real connection has the ability to transcend the exterior/surface to penetrate deep into the soul. Brilliantly acted, subtle direction, and masterfully crafted script.

I thought this play was very interesting by taking a difficult subject and looking at it from several different perspectives.

I thought the acting was first rate and the story and message heartwrenching. Kudos for brining on a still controversial topic. LOVED it!

There are lines that is well written, very thoughtful. I really like the acting, especially Roy/Rath and his wife. Both are great actors. I am not so sure about the "Transgender Lecture" and self-talk in between the act, they are kind awkward. ...

This play was a very heartfelt and accurate depiction of the challenges the transgender community faces. The actors were outstanding. I appreciated the bits of humor thrown in to lighten this emotional performance.

Touching, complex, and completely charming show, with a critical subject matters: change, acceptance, and love. Performances were top notch, especially Ray's wife (Irma) and deceased grandmother. We were made to laugh, cry, and think. Well done!

I really enjoyed it! Wonderful casting and great acting. I wasn't sure what to expect, given the subject, but thoroughly enjoyed the multi-layering with the issue of hormonal changes (ie teen/puberty, mom/menopause, and dad/transgender). Also...continued
