What I liked

Everything!

What I didn't like

The actors knew their stuff and it didn’t have to be billed as an enhanced reading. Creating those moments without the binders were possible with such strong actors.

My overall impression

This was such an interesting concept, using non-fiction characters in fictional conversations. Tom, the writer, really knew his stuff (i.e. the fire accident on the set of Wizard of Oz, or Agatha Christie missing for a few days). I enjoyed the different vignettes and believed the conversations between the characters. The actors created endearing and poignant moments that were never sentimental. Special shoutout to Carlos and Ben for stepping up and portraying characters 3 days before opening night. Great concept and writing, great direction, and great acting – one of my favorite shows! :D
