We loved it! Sue, who played the mother, was fantastic. It was great to be able to laugh when the subject matter was really heavy. Well done! And it was also a treating meeting the producers, Jim and Dennis. A super evening out in St. Paul! ...continued

This is a wonderful new play that beautifully combines a heart-wrenching story with a lot of humor and wit. It's contemporary, accessible, and with this terrific cast, it's just plain fun to watch. I was entertained from beginning to end.
