This was not entertaining at all. I've seen a lot of Broadway type plays and this may be the worst of them all. Now the theater is OK; just not this play.

Guess I'm going against the crowd, but I go to musicals to be uplifted, not depressed. The acting was good, but the subject matter and tone too dark for my tastes. After that, my husband told me we could not get any more season tickets...More

This play is about a family in which the father is gay and has gat affairs and daughter turns out to be a lesbian. It's terribly written, boring, and a typical 'liberal' play. The actors have their 'liberal' views at the end. It was disrespectful...More

I really enjoyed this play. The music was fantastic, the acting was terrific and the story was engaging. I wasn't bored at all because the play kept moving along at a great pace. The set design was wonderful, as well. I liked everything about it.

I had no idea what this play was about, so I read the Playbill. The plot sounded interesting; but what a let down. The theme, of a female looking back on her life and dealing with her and her overbearing Father's homosexuality just didn't hold...More

This is an intimate theatre, so your view is good and you can hear everything. It's closing soon so don't miss it.
