Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The play itself is at times adorable, romantic, and utterly terrifying. At times Johnny's actions seem desperate and obsessive, which tended to set off warning bells as I was reading. However, it is a great text for scenework, because there is so much unexpected depth between these two strangers.
