I see lots of theatre--and we both thought this was EXCELLENT!!!

GO SEE IT---I've told several friends about it--so if I liked it this much, it IS good!
Well acted, funny, thoughtful--and based on a true story of love and their relationship!!!

Beautifully written and executed work that brings the audience back to simpler times, with a touching message on cultural differences that love can transcend.

I was a long time resident of Pacific Palisades so I knew some of the story behind this play. I have learned to temper my expectations for small theatre productions but "Raise Me Up" was a very pleasant surprise! The story was sweet but compelling...continued

This is a memorable theatre experience not to be missed. Warm, funny, true to life and so well acted. All are to be congratulated. Most of all the writing is outstanding.

This was an excellent play. The actors were phemonal and the story was very well written. It evoked a lot of emotion and painted the time and era well. The time flew by because you were so absorbed in the play. It was absolutely wonderful. ...continued

4 thumbs up. You could (and should) take your mom to this show! Funny, touching, realistic, entertaining. Not a life-changing experience, but a very pleasant evening. Being based on a true story makes it all the more touching.

Absolutely wonderful. Not to be missed if you want to see what true love looks like, shining from the eyes of a human being. This is a winner in every way. Great venue, too. Save the Santa Monica Playhouse!
