When I first heard about this play I was like Honus who? I thought it was the kid in the play. My husband quickly corrected me and explained that Honus Wagner was a great baseball player whose card is very valuable do to not many were made. Reason for this was Honus Wagner was a non-smoker and back in the old days they used to sell tobacco with the players card. Honus objected to being included in the promotion because he did not want to set a bad example for children.
The play was funny, interesting, and heartfelt. I love stepping out of a play, having dinner, and discussing with my husband all about the play.
