    A great little biographical play about a pivotal moment in the life of one of our most cherished comediennes. This made me want to look more into the life of Lucille Ball. Great job!

    All playwrights who are discouraged need a mother like Lucille Ball's. This short play offers a pleasant change from a stage door Mama. Persistence!
