Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Original

See it if Your looking for a simple FUN show. Great story line. Good acting. I used to live in Texas and they got all the places and people dead on.

Don't see it if You have to have lots of bells and whistles. This is a simple show but packed with laughs and charm.

Entertaining, Funny, Surprising, Quirky, Very good acting

See it if you enjoy a well-crafted show which has an unexpected twist, easy to understand characters, and a happy ending.

Don't see it if you are afraid of guns, don't like cowboy types or ghosts; don't like a play in which the main characters lack chemistry.

Clever, True to life, Spoiler alert, Fun

See it if you're a Texan (I am)-it's very true to life, including gun culture and the death of small towns. Odd that playwright is from Schenectady...

Don't see it if you're intolerant of guns, you want a printed playbill or you're looking for a deep message. Ending needed more punch-didn't ring quite true

Entertaining, Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent

See it if you like being engaged in other people's lives. Father & daughter reunited. Ghost plays important part.

Don't see it if you don't care about family dynamics and quirky friends.

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you want to see a coming home / reuniting with family story, with a touch of the supernatural. Good writing and acting, nice set.

Don't see it if you want a very active or intense play, if you must have 100 percent realism, if you don't want to see a simple story.

The New York Times
June 9th, 2016

"A rollicking good ghost story…It’s also a very fine coming-home story, reconciliation story and small-town-hero story — another spunky, funny work by Josh Tobiessen…Mr. Weiner is electric here, a talky bundle of stuck-in-the-past…The director, Wes Grantom, gets Mr. Tobiessen’s script just right, disguising the twists and jokes adroitly and drawing fine performances out of everyone. If there is a ghost living in Walter’s store, it’s a well-entertained one."

Front Mezz Junkies

"Skillfully directed by Wes Grantom, everyone has a great time playing these characters with almost perfection; a talented group and a great ensemble…The play, though filled with charm and heart, has a few awkward moments that still need to be worked through to make it fully realized and flow freely...Moments need to be deepened, and transitions need to be ironed out, but the play has a great core; connections and relationships are all there."

The Huffington Post
June 8th, 2016

"There is an abundance of humor, warmth and wisdom in this small show. Ghosts and guns play their part, but it is its well-drawn and beautifully played characters that make it a go see. Director Wes Grantom does a great job of bumping people into each other at just the right moment and playwright Josh Tobiessen knows how to spin a surprise like a master."
