NOT WORTH THE MONEY
I love seeing live theatre. However, this was a disappointment. The performance felt like an actor desperately struggling to get to the end with partially memorized lines. None of Katherine Hepburn's raspy, sharp wit came through at all. The basic premise of the show - that her ankle had been crushed in an accident - was thrown out the window as the actor never even attempted a limp and gave up on the cane within the first five minutes of the show. She consistently walked out of light cues as she spent the whole 65 minutes of the show walking around the stage in a circle. The script was well written - garnering some laughs. But the heart and soul of Hepburn never made it on stage. Definitely not worth the expensive ticket price and absolutely not ready for Broadway.

DISAPPOINTED IN THE FENWAY
In my opinion, a production that should have been an easy grand slam for the legendary Faye Dunaway ultimately failed to hit the ball out of the park. As a die hard fan of the star, I felt a deep empathy for her throughout the performance. She seemed lost at times, particularly when trying to remember her lines while maneuvering through the obstacle course of completely unnecessary stage movements. Still, the standing ovation gifted to Ms Dunaway at the end was well deserved. However, I sense it was her legacy being applauded more than the play.

I was So excited to see Faye Dunaway in this play. The performance overall was terrible, she forgot lines often stumble through her words, and she was sniffing the whole time. Her timing was so off that it was amateurish. Don’t waste your money!
