Great acting, Entertaining, Romantic, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you like family plays that span generations.

Don't see it if very long plays with 2 intermissions; the first act is slow and a little confusing but the next 2 acts clears things up.

Don't see it if You’re not willing to pay the price. This is long and it’s not exactly filled with action. It is full of quirky, interesting characters. Read more
