December 3rd, 2015

"'Good Boys and True' in this day and age, is extremely relevant...There are many gut-wrenching, in-your-face moments in this drama. Amusing lines are written in as well, but they do not ease the tension...Though there is not much depth to the ideas written into Aguirre-Sacasa's script, White does well with bringing the important topics brought up in 'Good Boys and True' to life."

"The text by rising scribe Aguirre-Sacasa is one of his finest. But this production is sadly missing that spark...And that can be blamed on the scenic design…There's no wiggle room for the actors, forcing the staging to be quite stationary…The company that comprised 'Good Boys and True' were quite mixed…It’s likely you picked a conclusion mere moments into the play. This is an important story but Retro Productions didn’t seem to do justice for it."

"Retro Productions is an exceptionally talented theatre company dedicated to the presentation of 'good theatrical stories that have an historical perspective - with an emphasis on the 20th century'...This revival does not come across as dated at all. Indeed, although the internet and sexting may have supplanted videotaping in today’s world, the play’s message is as salient today as it ever was."
