The Mexican place is a block away and across the street. It was really packed on a Friday night. I recommend having 1.5 hours to dine there before the show. We got tacos practically to go and it was over 45 minutes. The food was great, though, and they have homemade chips. Yum!

I was ready to leave after 20 minutes, but we waited until intermission. Farce should be light as a feather, but this was a lead pancake. Performances were strident. Very disappointing.

I thought it was terrible, miscast and not funny. We left at intermission.

The humorous antics and shenanigans of the colorful personalities on stage… bring a laugh a minute —Tolucan Times

Run For Your Wife is the perfect answer to anyone asking where to find great theater in Los Angeles. — Acted By

The production is a well-built comedic train running down the track…and a large share of the credit goes to director Tina Polzin, who keeps the play moving at a breakneck pace, with exceptional blocking, humorous poses and well-timed mugging from the actors… This comedy is one of the funniest I’ve seen on stage in years. —Palisadian-Post

In the polygamist tradition of the hit television show Big Love, the comedy _Run For Your Wife _kicks off 2010 with a multi-marital bang. John Smith is an aptly named very ordinary man with a very extraordinary love life. Without so much as a Blackberry, John has managed to keep dual marriages going, until now.

Director Tina Polzin and the cast are all making their Morgan-Wixson debuts, bringing with them an array of New York and international credits. Features Paul Guay, Michael Silva, Tristan Wright, Laura Buckles, Rebekah Voss, Morgan Krantz, and Justin Wade.
