See it if Some stellar acting .Partner's 95 %.My 90%. Fascinating look at stardom, the church and thoughts re: life. Much is done with little.

Don't see it if you must see elaborate spectacles. One oddity.... scenes are in two motel rooms but the walls are bare??

“Its maddening structure, extraneous scenes and superfluous characters diminish but do not totally obliterate the potency of playwright Small’s romantic drama...What could have been a focused and poignant work is instead an erratic jumble...With unrewarding tangents...A memory play but poorly executed...The play’s beautifully powerful final moments are marred...as there’s more stage business instead of merely a simple blackout. Luckily two excellent actors play the leading roles."

“A sumptuous exploration of second chances. It has the rhythm and smell of nostalgia...The characters are meticulously drawn and we fall into their lives like a Saint Bernard on an old sofa –its immensely satisfying and comfortable to experience...Rich, potent text...Strong directorial vision...Complex emotional layering. It is a joy to watch the story unfold...All production elements are artfully executed...Classy, sensory explosion.”
