West Side Waltz – Reviews

Hollywood Progressive 
A DELIGHT… zooms in on the inner lives of its three female characters, brought fully alive by a trio of gifted actresses who also bring their real life relationships to bear on their roles… Thompson’s ‘deconstructed’ version ennobles this well-written, well-directed, superbly acted Waltz.” — Ed Rampell, Hollywood Progressive

A RICH CANVAS… abandoned dreams, lost love, coping with unexpected grief, and the frightening reality of aging… rich in characters, bolstered by a stellar trio of leading ladies.” — Taylor Kass, Stage Raw
