5 out of 5 stars for August: Osage County!

One of the best non-musical productions in Birmingham in a long, long time…a doozie, a rollicking roller-coaster of a look inside the lives of the Weston family…absolutely a show not to be missed…you just may never be able to see it done so well again. (5 out of 5 stars)
