Banal, Cliched, Indulgent, Slow, This fails as a play because it's only 5% show and 95% tell in boring monologues. at just 1 hour it seemed too long.

See it if You're too over the top happy about Christmas and need to be saddened a little for balance--this will level you right out.

Don't see it if You already have the Christmas blues and a bummer like this is the very last thing you need.

Slow, Disappointing, Fluffy

See it if You don’t mind a slow paced story telling. The writing needs editing.

Don't see it if You expect a joyful Christmas story.

Slow, Cliched, Indulgent, Has a message but play needs rework!

See it if U like sad love stories that have been done a zillion times. U can relate to grief & regret. U have incredible patience for the first 30 min

Don't see it if This is not a joyful holiday show & has a sad ending. Actress gushes boring details for 30 minutes before drama sets in. Needs Rework! Read more

Don't see it if You are expecting fast and upbeat

Great acting, Relevant, Delightful

See it if you want ideas of how to improve your relationship or just want an hour of entertainment.

Don't see it if you don't like one woman shows. It's not, but the actress is the main speaker. She was excellent. How did she remember all the lines :-) Read more
