This is a wonderful, charming play. The characters are interesting to read (distinctive voices/personalities). I think the story overall is a little dated, but it's still entertaining. The idea of a blind man living independently or achieving success isn't so unique now. So the conflct of a blind young man wanting to go out on his own isn't really that eyebrow raising in 2011 but the play is still enjoyable despite this. I like the relationship between Jill and Don (finding love and holding onto it no matter what) and the relationship between Don and his overprotective mother (letting someone go because you love them).

This is a wonderful, well-written, beautiful play. It is entertaining and funny and sad all at the same time. I'm performing a scene from it and I'm absolutley in love with the characters.

This is a great play to read. I read it for my Theatre class and I could not put the book down. Blind boy trying to live on his own, but mother is too over protected, she doesn't think he can live on his own. This book is comical, sexy, and a little sad.
