"Oh. My. God. What an incredible evening. I fear that mere words can not adequately describe how compelling, funny, memorable, touching, and satisfying this entertainment is."
-Ken Gallegos, Executive Director, Human Resources San Rafael City Schools

I saw some of the best drama I've seen in ages - and the actors were all kids. ... as they stand on stage with their words of compassion and fear, bewilderment and hope, yearning and dreams... This is the sort of drama that should get extended runs, playing to audiences around the country, with kids from Kansas and Louisiana and Alaska taking on these roles. This is about opening hearts, one audience member, one cast member, at a time."
"Get in your cars (or hop a plane) and go see 'Prop 8 Love Stories'. Brian Glenn Bryson, director and creator, along with an amazingly talented group of kids have developed an awesome piece of theater and it is not to be missed."
-Jennifer Light, President of Bay Area Creative Services Staffing firm, Berkeley

I cannot begin to tell you how many ways it touched me. I laughed and cried several times in the evening. It was truly amazing. This is one of those once in a lifetime shows that should tour the high schools. Thank you for your brilliant work. I will never forget it.
-Kim Connolly, Clinical Program Manager, Braun School
