I would not have been seated if there were not enough unsold seats. Buy your tickets early to be first in the standby line.

I love true stories and it's special to learn about history, too... this play had everything, humor, sorrow, education... excellent presentation, acting, singing!

This is a terrific show, a wonderful "meditation" on art and it's place in the lives of everyone: rich, poor, all levels of education. It is around a bit longer...go see it!
