Theater Review: A wickedly biting take on class and advantage in “Good People” at Cadence Theatre. - Rich Griset, Style Weekly
Thank you for inviting me to come to last night’s production. Amy and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. It was a spectacular cast, great play and it always amazes me what you are able to do with sets in that black box theatre.
I told Amy that your plays always make me cry. After the first act I thought this will be the first Cadence Theatre play that I will not break down in tears. Then came the second act… So, you have made me cry at everyone of your productions.
Again, thank you for your generosity and a great evening of theatre.
Keep up the good work.
