If you think you’ve seen this play before, you’re deluding yourself. You haven’t really seen it until you witness this magnetic performance.

A wonderfully written play very well acted. For whatever reason some of the dialog was lost. It is possible because of the accents needed, since it takes place in central, rural America. Overall a very good experience.

After a slow first act that does not catch fire until the character "Starbuck" arrives, this production grabs you and never lets go with it emotional
pull and involvement. Not in the least dated, it makes you care for real people with dreams and...continued

First time at the theater - liked it...would go to another venue there. Should have more assortments of refreshments as well as some wine would be tasteful. Production was cute!

The play was in a small theater in Santa Monica on Main Street, close to restaurants with plenty of parking. The venue was very intimate so you actually felt like you were a character in the play so it was easy to relate to the actors. We went on...continued

Great night at the theater. Two and a half hours flies by. The writing and acting are top notch. Small intimate theater with stadium style seats. First row sits right on the stage and makes you feel like you're in the middle if the action. After...continued

Tanna Frederick is absolutely magnetic (as always) in the lead role. The rest of the cast is excellent, they all properly depict this period piece. Well done indeed.
