FROM HERE TO MATURITY is a terrific comedy-drama about a young man looking to find his way after a big life set back and which references classic movies for life lessons.

Yes yes yes!!!!! Lucas blew me away! His characters, his energy...what a great show! Lucas is so likable and plays all of the different characters so well. He truly morphed into each one and I believed they were different people on the stage. His energy was nonstop and he gave everything he had to tell this story. It was sweet, funny and had some twist along the way. LOVED IT!!!... full review
