    I'm so glad I went! I'm glad I met the people that joined us and the people in the play were really good. "Hank Williams" was wonderful.

    THEE BEST!! I'M STILL FLOATING! I want to see this one again! Scott, what is the best place to write a review so other theatre goers come out to see this Fantastic production?

    This was, perhaps, the best play I've ever seen. There was not a disappointing moment. Thank you Scott.

    This was, by far, the BEST production I've been to in Chicago. To be so intimately seated and an actual part of the performance was an experience I want to do again. Scott? Can we do it again?

      Gitta...I see that you produce plays...That's my goal as well, and why I'm a member of Chicago Dramatists...We should talk.

    I am really looking forward to this. For one thing, I loves so many of the songs.
