What I liked

Not only were the characters well written and truly believable but a better cast could not have been picked to bring this play to life. Miriam’s direction mixed with Henry’s writing created a natural story line that captured George’s unapologetic creative voice and unwillingness to let others derail his vision. It almost comes off as a cautionary tale for any young director with stellar ambitions.

What I didn't like

I felt like the script ended somewhat short. I would love to see George’s conception of Star Wars fleshed out more and expanded upon. Even after my second viewing, the play left me wanting more. I would be excited to see a longer version or even a movie adaption.

My overall impression

George. takes us on a insightful journey of the many hoops Mr. Lucas force jumped his way through in order to bring our favorite wars among the stars to screen, big and small. Although, I am more a fan of Star Wars than any other Lucas film, I found myself increasingly engaged in the story as the play progressed through his early directing years leading up to Star Wars.
