Resonant, Great writing, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if Wonderfully styled short stories, often reminiscent of O. Henry, read by talented actors. Included a musical performance as well.

Don't see it if You need flashy videos to enjoy performances. This was like listening to old-time radio.

Clever, Delightful, Dizzying, Hilarious

See it if You enjoy screwball comedies featuring mistaken identities. These comedies are tough to manage but the actors pulled it off brilliantly.

Don't see it if You prefer tragedies. This one features infidelities but no real punishments for the wrongdoers. Sins without consequences may not appeal.

With its excellent ensemble cast, I guarantee you will have a jolly good time."

"It’s such a rare and unexpected treat to attend a piece of theater that takes care of its audience so wholly as this production...The Gallery Players 'It Runs in the Family' provides more theatrical entertainment than can be found in most Broadway productions. The cast and crews' efforts are earnest and genuine and that shines throughout the evening."
