What I liked

This show sneaks up on you. The fast-paced nature of the story and the energetic performances make you feel as though you are involved in a fun, near-vaudevillian romp. Around the midpoint, I felt the gravity of the story set in and I was reminded that this journey we were on was not fictional. This roller coaster of tale was lived out by the title character not so very long ago. By the end of the play I found myself wiping away tears as the jury, and the audience, are asked to consider the nature and beauty of mercy. Wishbone successfully entertained me with hilarious characters, passionate love, and mustaches. They also inspired me to view my fellow humans with just a little more grace. Bravo!

What I didn't like

I loved the story. I would like to see a 90 minute version of this show in the future!

My overall impression

Wishbone successfully entertained me with hilarious characters, passionate love, and mustaches. They also inspired me to view my fellow humans with just a little more grace. Bravo!
