    I’m not exactly a newbie but will label myself a novice. I did see it at Saroyan when it came with the Broadway in Fresno season. Other than that, I had only heard the the accolades it had received. Would love to experience a more local production.

    I would love to have the tickets to give as a gift to a recent college grad and who cannot afford the price of the tickets, but who would love to go to this production.
