How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I like Amy and David Sedaris very much, and would like to give 3 stars for their writing. Unfortunately, the production and performances were so notably amateur that I just can't do it. In fact, it pained me to see their work poorly produced. There were some moments, but overall I essentially couldn't believe I had paid money to see this. Lines were fumbled, sometimes badly. The sets and lighting not far off from a high school production. The theater and stage are very small and located in an older elementary school in Costa Mesa. In their defense, I had never been to the CM Playhouse and did not realize that it was a tiny community theater of non professionals. They are trying hard, but I likely would not pay to see a play here again. On the best note, my guests enjoyed it and were able to overlook the level of acting due to the many jokes about AA, of which they are members.

Help others enjoy a great night out

Theater space & lobby are small and in need of some TLC cleaning
Nice jeans are fine. This is a small community theater.
