"Said to be one of Garry Marshall's favorite plays, Terrence McNally's Master Class proves an ideal choice to reopen the theater that now pays tribute to his legend. With Carolyn Hennesy giving the performance of a lifetime, this Master Class is masterful indeed."

"Garry Marshall Theatre's elegantly crafted production of MASTER CLASS is a gorgeous example of pairing the right actor with the right play at the right moment in a theatre's evolution. Callas says one must know one's assets in order to create art. Rest assured they do here...Hennesy reveals a sensitivity to the material that makes this one of the most striking performances of the 2017 theatre season."
