This is a drama about a well-known newspaper journalist. It was interesting to learn the political inner workings of the newspaper business as well. Tom Hanks was energetic and commanding along with other television actors.

This play was very fast paced and a couple times it was hard to hear the actors, but Tom Hanks and Courtney B. Vance were so amazing. This is one of my favorite experiences ever!

Totally enjoyable play from start to end. Tom Hanks is amazing, supporting cast also excellent. Sitting in row D was just like having Hanks perform in our living room. Only 2 days left - should sell out - a must see!
