We ate at Boneyard Bistro ahead of the show. It was fast and delicious, a great way to enjoy a relaxing and delicious dinner before the show. You can valet park at the restaurant and stay for the show.

Quotes & Highlights

“Hilariously intricate dialog very well executed by an exceptionally talented cast. Nothing to kvetch about in this production - go see it!” —
“Steven Berkoff’s abrasive, but hilariously on-target look at people who kvetch their way through life is being given a skillfully sharp production by SeaGlass Theatre … kvetch is never easy to take — and a difficult one for the actors to pull off, but SeaGlass does it with sublime artistry, with laughs aplenty.”  —
“The best show I’ve seen this year … I will see it again, and I urge anyone who values a living theater to do the same. … completely absorbing … extraordinarily funny … Berkoff and director Ian Vogt wield a handful of brutal devices to enhance dynamics already at work in this play, gears and wheels of love, honor, identity, faith, all whirling and pulling at one another until I expected to see arms and legs come off these actors’ bodies." -Stage Happenings
“A scaldingly funny masterpiece … sidesplitting, remarkably compelling … sensational … a comic touchdown."  —LA Stage Times
