The cast really shines in this 70s themed musical comedy. I was laughing out loud and singing along. Their enthusiasm and talent made it a joy to watch.

My daughter bought tickets to this intimate little theater for Mothers Day and it may have been the best gift she ever gave me. The play was a Neil Simon, "I ought to be in Pictures" and was extremely good. There were only three cast...More

Whenever we visit Galveston and we know the Island Etc has a new play,we attend. Yes, many of the players are amateurs. That only means they don't get paid much or anything. It has nothing to do with the talent which is consistently excellent. The...More
