Good play. It is well acted and it is very well scripted, especially for Fitzgerald fans. The play is obviously told from the perspective of Zelda's point of view than F. Scott. I agree that the play is not really musical appropriate. The...continued

This was a fantastic production! The two Zeldas on stage at the same time was fascinating---contributing to bipolar personality of Zelda. The set added visual enjoyment. I expected it to be the telling of the book "This Side of Paradise" but it...continued

I'd give this show a C-minus; it was decently performed on the part of the actors, but the material they worked with and some of the direction left me disappointed. This is a story that doesn't feel as though it should be turned into a musical, or...continued

The Red Velvet membership always seems to make a difference in the seating that I get when buying Goldstar theater tickets. Appreciate that the yearly fee paid, pays off. The play was well done.

As usual, the History Theater does a good job but this wasn’t as smooth or as interesting and many other productions.

My friend and I got front row seats, just to the right of center stage. That, was a fun experience. The play was wonderful. It did a great job of telling the story of Zelda and F.Scott. Would highly recommend. Love the venue itself. Met...continued

Great acting and singing. Very effective to juxtapose the older and younger Zelda. Clever staging with the see-through windows. We have been recommending this to friends.

Wonderful production and the first time I had been to the History Theater in years. I will definitely go again. What a great venue--not a bad seat in the house. We stayed for the "Afterwards" and were able to interact with the cast and director...continued

Absolutely LOVED This Side of Paradise. The acting was superb - especially F. Scott.
Actors had obviously done their research. The music was great and very appropriate to
the time. Enjoyed the dancing and choreography. Would be good to see more...continued

The event was wonderful. Quality was superb. Mental health was treated differently during those times. Timing for the show was excellent - with the release of the Great Gatsby which did not get good reviews.
