I think this is one of the finest plays I've seen in a while. My introduction to it was from the front row during the Broadway run. This is sure to be a safe bet. Go see it. Can't wait to see what the Guthrie cooks up. So lucky to live in Minneapolis.

I am from Palm Springs and believe me, the parents in this play are fully realized; probably because the playwright spent a lot of time in Palm Springs, so he knows whereof he writes. I saw this when it played at Lincoln Center and went again when it played the Ahmanson in L.A. (way too large a venue for this intimate play). By all means, go see this and enjoy the writing and the theme. Very powerful-maybe even more so in a liberal city such as Minneapolis. But the Republicans are not treated too harshly, more sympathetically

What a powerful play! Don't miss it. I found so much to relate to, and react to. Very emotionally charged.
