Wonderfully acted by a five person cast. Slickly produced. Lots of humor, but it also makes you think. I particularly liked the cheesy musical selections from the 50's, since I'm old enough to remember them. Anyone could enjoy this, but I...continued

Very enjoyable, well done. Not a major work of art, but that's OK, too.

The story is great. The sets are fantastic. The costumes are to drool for. The acting, while great, was a bit uneven during the preview. And I couldn't hear several key lines throughout the performance. So either mike up or project better.

A new play by Jordan Harrison

Directed by Mark Rucker

Could you drop Wi-Fi for hi-fi? Abandon sushi lunches for Tupperware parties? What would you give up for a simpler life? Overwhelmed by the infinite choices of the modern world, Katha and Ryu discover an enticing escape route: joining a community of 1950s reenactors, where life is slower, passion is risqué, and a sparkling cocktail is a daily accessory. But in this provocative comedy, retro attitudes about gender, race, and sexuality stir up powerful questions. How much are they willing to sacrifice for happiness?

Recommended for ages 14 and older (contains sexual situations and partial nudity).
