We LOVE Bustle! A welcome option from other spots on QA. Very friendly, consistent staff. Folks that have bothered to learn our names and to know our usual drinks. The owner Patrick is often behind the counter, even at 6am, as one might expect from a cafe or other small business in Europe. It's clear that he cares about his customers, his employees and his product. And he makes the best macchiato I've ever had!

We were there on opening night, which is always a risk. One may experience the thrill, excitement and anxiety that the performers do when the curtain rises on a wonderful new show, and/or one might experience a play that needs a lot more work.

Our experience was that of excitement and engagement. It is really a great story. I am surprised that it's not yet been made into a movie! It is pretty easy to imagine it up on the big screen.

Annex Theatre doesn't have a "big screen", but they did a great job with this big story regardless.

It's not perfect, and maybe it's a little long, but it's a complicated story. Regardless, there are lots of very short scenes, some of which move the story along, and some of which don't and could probably be cut. But this is just a little quibble; not a big deal.

All in all, it was a very entertaining piece of theatre. We are going again next weekend.

Bravo to Annex and to the creators and cast!
