Intelligent performances that are infused with two old pros' joy in the mastery of their craft. And they pull off the deft trick of registering as big as we want them to be

reviewer: from USA
We took my visiting 89-year-old mother to see this play; it was especially close to our hearts as my mother had given up driving her car years ago- the actors (ALL OF THEM) were more than wonderful; it was as if you were actually living in the era depicted. James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave and Boyd Gaines actually made you believe every emotion, and line that was felt and said. They are all truly at the "top of their game"- cannot say enough about this wonderful play, or the wonderful performances in it. A Must See!!

A Gift,
Jan 31, 2011
reviewer: from Nashville, TN
Walked outside --and felt disoriented seeing 20" of snow pilled up. I was still in hot, humid Atlanta. With a very simple stage set the 3 actors captured and gave the audience a gift of believing the play.

Front House Staff A Disgrace To This Play,
Nov 01, 2010
reviewer: from USA
The actors in this play at superb. Absolutely fabulous. However, from the moment we entered this theatre every single front of house staff member we encountered were a definite disservice to these actors. They were abrupt, rude and classless. A play with actors of this calibre deserves a front of house staff that will be a credit to the production. We were shouted at to not seat ourselves and the manner in which we were shouted at was rude and offensive. When we were finally shown our seats (which we had already found ourselves, but we were told to remain in the aisle until we could "be shown" our seats) we were told "I hope you have a better night ladies". Totally classless. We attended three Broadway productions during our trip and by far, the front of house staff at this theatre were the worst. Ruined the evening. Surely for the price of the ticket better staff could be found to enhance what the Golden Theatre has to offer???
